The R3 reattachment system is designed to be used with any Typenex Medical barcoded blood bands, including the:
When a caregiver needs to reattach a band, they simply grab the current band and cut off the portion of the band to the left and the right of each R3 slot.
The caregiver will then take an R3 band and slide it through the permanent openings. Now the label is attached to the R3 band, and the caregiver can reattach it by wrapping the band around an extremity and snapping it closed.
Because the R3 was created to slide underneath the patient information label, it helps ensure that caregivers can access the necessary information even after relocating the band.
Remember, it is best to complete this procedure in a controlled setting. Caregivers should complete all steps at the patient’s bedside.
When used correctly, the R3 reattachment system makes relocating a blood band safe for everybody involved. Learn how easy and convenient the R3 Band is by reviewing the Directions for Use here. View Here
