The safer use of medicines is our top priority. Our products improve the safety of medical practices and the medication errors prevention.
The Aguettant pre-filled syringe : an helpful tool for the medication errors prevention
We consider that the incidence of medication errors in the administration of drugs by injected bolus in anesthesia is estimated 1 in 200 anesthetics*.
Emergency and stress situations known in the operating block create favourable conditions for the occurrence of errors.
All the injectable medicine preparation steps are potential sources of risk : selection | Reconstruction | Dilution | Administration.
Our pre-filled syringes range is an integral part of the Risk control and prevention process.
