General information

For prolonged intravenous infusions.

Sterile tubular device, which is introduced into the peripheral vein using a trocar, used to administer drugs, to set up an IV line and/or to give a blood transfusion.

The IV cannula is classified as short when its length is less than or equal to 80mm.


Components and materials:

Catheter hub: Teflon fluoro ethyl propylene (FEP) .


Fixation wing.


Injection port with closing cone.


Luer-lock fitting.


Introducing guide / trocar.


Internal needle or trocar: stainless steel.


Protective cap.






Hub: cannula part which remains inserted.


Catheter (distal part): transparent, straight with 2-4 fully embed X-ray contrast lines, tapering end.


The X-ray line allows better control over the catheter and the internal needle when doing a vein puncture under poor lighting conditions.


Injection port: has a bacterial filter and a removable reusable cap or cone (for closing) attached with a fixed strap.


The cap should be free of protuberances.


Fixation wing: sloped supporting surface to compensate for puncture gradient.


Luer connection (proximal part): for attachment of an infusion, syringe with Luer-lock fitting.


Luer connection (proximal part): for attachment of an infusion, syringe with Luer-lock fitting.


Internal needle or trocar with bevelled edge ensures a good skin penetration and reduces vein trauma. The internal needle is connected to a transparent flashback chamber with handgrip and stopper.


The transparent base enables monitoring for blood reflux when a vein is punctured.
