Barber have IV CANNULAE to suit every application

The stainless steel needles are bevelled and siliconised for smooth and painless venipuncture. The cannula tubing is made with PTFE, which has a low co-efficient of friction, making it easier to insert and hence reducing trauma. They also have a high flow rate due to the thin walled catheter, crucial when a patientís life is at stake.

The foldable groove wings on the Medican with an angular inclining supporting surface results in easy insertion and firm fixation.

Kinking is avoided by the inclination and the wings reduce the pressure of the hub on the vein, permitting maximum blood flow.

The extra thin walled needle has a hub with a large flashback chamber and a hydrophobic luer lock plug. This results in a higher flow rate and quick, easy confirmation of correct vascular access.The plug also helps avoid blood spillage and prevents formation of bubbles.
