I.V. cannula

To avoid repeated venepuncture in patients for whom fluids, electrolyte solutions or medication must be given intravenously on a permanent basis, an I.V. cannula is inserted, which can generally be left in place for several days.


  • Peripheral I.V. cannulae are used for intravenous administration of medication or infusions
  • The polyurethane thermoplastic cannula material is highly biocompatible, enabling the cannula to remain in place for a prolonged period
  • The atraumatic needle tip, with its triple bevel edge, helps to provide effective venepuncture
  • The thin-walled cannula facilitates high, constant flow rates
  • Pliable wings ensure secure and gentle placement of the cannula
  • Thanks to the transparent flashback chamber, the blood backflow is immediately visible following successful venepuncture
  • Our range includes I.V. cannulae with injection ports
  • The injection port allows additional medication to be administered directly into the vein
  • Colour coding (in accordance with the ISO Standard) ensures that the correct size of  I.V. cannulae is selected
