A Huber Needle is a specialized medical needle designed for accessing and delivering medications or other substances directly into a vascular access device called a port. These ports are typically implanted beneath the skin and connected to a catheter that leads to a major vein, making them useful for patients who require frequent or long-term intravenous treatments.
Key features of a Huber Needle include:
Non-Coring Tip: The needle features a non-coring tip, which means it’s designed not to cut or damage the septum (self-sealing membrane) of the port, helping to maintain its integrity.
Winged or Non-Winged: Huber needles come in both winged and non-winged versions, providing healthcare professionals with options for secure insertion and stabilization.
Calibrated Length: The needle is calibrated to a specific length to ensure it reaches the port’s septum without excessive penetration.
Sterility: Huber needles are pre-sterilized and designed for single use to maintain aseptic conditions during access.
Huber needles are crucial for patients who require long-term intravenous therapies, such as chemotherapy, parenteral nutrition, or other medications. Their design ensures that access to the port is maintained while minimizing discomfort and the risk of complications during repeated administrations.
