The IV cannula features a colour-coded port cap as per EN ISO-10555
The IV cannula's gently tapered catheter tip aligns with the needle bevel to provide smooth transition from needle to catheter
The IV cannula has siliconised stainless steel needle with ultra-sharp triple facet bevel for smooth and painless venipuncture
These IV cannulas are enabled with flat wings, fold to allow secure fixation to skin with fixation tapes
The injection port of this IV cannula has one way silicon retreating valve to facilitate extra medication by syringe without needle and to prevent back flow
The valve cap has special design to facilitate two point grips for cannulation
The IV cannulas are available in a variety of gauges to accommodate procedural and patient needs
The healflon IV cannula is designed with transparent flashback chamber for immediate conformation of venipuncture and ensure smooth flow of blood or any other fluids
Its revolutionary design safety feature provides complete protection to healthcare workers as well as hospital waste handlers from accidental needle-stick injuries and prevents transmission of blood-borne pathogens from patients

Intravenous (IV) cannulation is a process in which a cannula is placed inside a vein to provide access for multiple actions such as blood sampling, administration of fluids, medication, parenteral nutrition, chemotherapy for cancer drugs and various other blood products. Complications such as hematoma, infiltration, embolism and phlebitis may occur during cannulation and healthcare providers should take precautions for the same.
A needle is inserted through the skin of the patient into one of the veins. The needle is later removed, leaving just a tiny, thin, flexible tube inside your vein. The IV cannula is safely taped into place with the use of medical tapes. The IV cannula should not hurt when it is in place, and can be left in place for several days.
IV cannulas are available in different gauge sizes and in general the smallest gauge should be used to effectively administer the fluid. This ensures that there is limited trauma to the vein. In case of emergencies, the larger sizes can be used for greater flow rates can be maintained for required fluids. The 2 way IV cannulas and 3 way IV cannulas are available with or without injection ports
IV cannulas are used to perform the following functions: ◦ Regular blood sampling ◦ Monitoring and administration of intra venous fluids ◦ Administration of chemotherapy drugs through the IV route ◦ Channel for IV nutrition and IV control of radiologic agents such as those used in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) ◦ CT scans (computed tomography) and nuclear imaging
The cannula will be removed after your treatment ends. It is recommended to replace the cannula if it is not working properly. It should be replaced routinely if still in use every 72 hours.
