A vascular cannulation device which reduces patients pain and anxiety.
The Painless Cannula is an insertion device that incorporates an injectable local anaesthetic within the tip. A direct replacement for a separate cannula and anaesthetic syringe, this new safe-needle technology forces best practice on pressured clinical environments.
A hair-like needle anaesthetises a specific target on the patient's arm. In exactly this position a larger gauge needle can then penetrate the vein without the patient experiencing any discomfort.
The syringe contains 0.2ml of Lidocaine anaesthetic injected through a tiny 32 gauge needle. Best practice is forced upon the clinician, the cannula can only be accessed once the syringe has been depressed and local anaesthetic injected intradermally and subcutaneously into the patient.
