A Scalp Vein Set, also known as a Scalp Vein Infusion Set or Butterfly Needle, is a medical device designed for the safe and efficient access to a patient’s small veins, typically in the scalp or the back of the hand. It is commonly used for intravenous (IV) therapy in infants, children, and adults, particularly when it’s challenging to access larger veins.
The Scalp Vein Set consists of a thin, flexible tube with a butterfly-shaped plastic wing on one end and a small, ultra-fine needle on the other. The needle is used for initial venipuncture, while the butterfly wings are used for stabilization and easy removal once the vein is accessed. This design minimizes trauma to the vein and is especially suitable for patients with delicate or hard-to-access veins.
Healthcare professionals use Scalp Vein Sets for various medical purposes, such as administering medications, drawing blood samples, or providing fluids. The small size and gentle nature of these devices make them valuable tools for pediatric and neonatal care, where vein access can be challenging.
In summary, a Scalp Vein Set is an essential tool in the medical field, ensuring the safe and effective access to small veins, particularly in patients where traditional IV access may not be as suitable or comfortable.
