"Bimeco has introduced new medical technologies in the Southeastern United States for over 20 years, including IV therapy products." said Mark Jungers, EVP at The Bimeco Group. "We believe that SafeBreak Vascular is going to be a game changer for patients and nurses, and our sales team is excited to represent Lineus Medical in the region."

SafeBreak Vascular is a break-away connector that fits into any peripheral IV line in the world. The device is designed to separate when damaging force is placed on an IV line, reducing vein irritation and the chances of the IV dislodging. When the device separates, valves on each side of the device close to stop the flow of medication from the pump and blood flow from the patient's IV catheter. The separated SafeBreak can be replaced with a new, sterile SafeBreak and the IV restarted without the need for another needlestick for the patient.

SafeBreak Vascular reduces the failure of peripheral IV lines and the negative cascade of events that occurs when an IV restart is required. Peripheral IVs fail 46% of the time before their intended use is complete according to the clinical literature and cost the US healthcare system over $5B annually2.
