A Pen-Like IV Cannula is a medical device designed for intravenous (IV) access to administer fluids, medications, or blood products to patients. It is often referred to as “pen-like” due to its slim and cylindrical shape, resembling the size and form of a pen. These cannulas are typically used in various clinical settings, including hospitals and clinics.
Key features of a Pen-Like IV Cannula include:
Slim and Cylindrical Design: The cannula has a slender, cylindrical shape that allows for easy insertion into a patient’s vein.
Needle and Catheter: It consists of a sharp needle at the front for initial vein penetration and a flexible plastic catheter that remains in the vein after insertion.
Winged or Flanged Hub: Many pen-like IV cannulas have wings or flanges for secure placement and stabilization during venepuncture.
Sterile and Single-Use: These cannulas are pre-sterilized and designed for single use to ensure they are free from contaminants and maintain aseptic conditions.
Pen-Like IV Cannulas are essential tools for healthcare providers to establish intravenous access quickly and efficiently. Their slim design and secure hub facilitate safe and comfortable venepuncture while ensuring the sterile administration of fluids, medications, or other treatments.
