Prefilled safety devices are devices developed as a result of the advancement of innovation in the conventional type of syringes, wherein the needles are created with safety system to anticipate any needle stick or some other needle-related wounds. These needles are designed in a way to reduce hurting in patients, besides preventing the contact of health care service providers from the danger of unsafe contamination. These syringes have needles which enables safe transfer of drug and eliminates the abuse of used syringes as those needles can be disposed and withdrawn after use. In addition, syringes with defensive shields are also available.
Prefilled safety devices are used in a large number of hospitals, clinics, and other health care facilities across the globe. These are produced to lessen needle-stick wounds and the risks of spreading of diseases due to these wounds. Spread of contamination due to the reuse of needles and syringes can be prevented through appropriate management of used syringes.
According to a study conducted by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2016, globally, approximately 16 billion injections are given to patients in a year, out of which, approximately 90% is prescribed for preventive conditions. Risks of syringes are prevalent throughout the world, especially in developing countries, which pose high risk of developing infection among health care service providers and patients. Unsafe use of syringes can lead to malaria, hemorrhagic fevers, including Marburg and Ebola viruses, and others. Rising awareness about prefilled safety devices is projected to be a key driver of the growth of the global Prefilled Safety Devices Market during the forecast period. However, lack of awareness about the risks of reusing of prefilled syringes is expected to hinder the growth of the global prefilled safety devices market during the forecast period. Health care practitioners in developing countries, such as, India, Brazil, and China have the practice of reusing syringes in order to save costs, although this is anticipated to change in the near future due to rising awareness and regulatory pressure.
