An Intravenous (I.V.) Cannula helps gain venous access for administration of fluids, medication, chemotherapy, parenteral nutrition, and sampling of blood among others. It is typically inserted through the skin into a vein – preferably away from a joint – with the help of a fine needle. The needle is later removed, leaving only the small flexible tube i.e. the cannula in the vein. The I.V. Cannula is taped in place to prevent it from falling out. It should not hurt while it is in place and must be replaced routinely every 72 hours.

We at Hindustan Syringes & Medical Devices (HMD) Ltd. have developed a variety of non-safety cannulas, based specifically on the needs of patients and healthcare workers. Designed to enhance patient experience and improve clinical outcomes, the HMD family of non-safety I.V. Cannulas includes the following products:

Cathy I.V. Cannulas

This non-safety cannula has the following key features:

  • Causes minimal trauma due to easy penetration
  • Catheter is made of Volex, ensuring greater durability
  • The wings, constructed of nontoxic, medical-grade polypropylene, provide extra grip at the time of insertion
  • The needle tip has a short bevel ‘back’ cut point to make catheterization easy and cause minimal pain
  • The injection port and receiving end of the wing have a 6% Luer taper in compliance with ISO:80369
  • Available in the gauge sizes of 16/17/18/20/22/24/26G

Cathula I.V. Cannulas

The important features of this type of cannula are as follows:

  • 2 way/1 way I.V. Cannula with wings. The angled, grooved wings make fixation easy and prevent the shifting & rolling of the cannula
  • Single-use, sterile, non-pyrogenic, and nontoxic
  • Flat base for improving skin contact and comfort
  • Provided with a low-pressure injection valve that facilitates additional medication and prevents its backflow
  • Protected valve with easy to open Injection Port Cap
  • Injection Port Cap is color-coded for identifying size
  • The catheter has 4 encapsulated radio-opaque stripes to make sure that if the tip of the catheter is accidentally cut off by the needle, it can be detected by X-ray
  • Luer Lock is connected with a blood-stopper, allowing air to escape and preventing blood spill

Kit-Kath I.V. Cannula

The Kit-Kath I.V. Cannula is a globally sought-after non-safety I.V. cannula. Its defining features are:

  • Single-use, non-toxic, sterile, and non-pyrogenic
  • Has a specially designed low-pressure, one-way retreating injection valve
  • Permits medication to be injected via a syringe without a needle thereby minimizing chances of infection and preventing needle-stick injuries
  • Specially designed angled and grooved wings to ensure easy & secure fixation with the skin
  • Extra-sharp, beveled needle made of stainless steel to minimize trauma during venipuncture

Kit-Kath+ I.V. Cannula

This non-safety cannula boasts the following features:

  • Manufactured with the help of fully Automated Technology, it undergoes stringent visual inspection to check all aspects of the design
  • Has an FEP Catheter that reduces penetration force and improves insertion performance
  • Color-coded body instead of color-coded Injection Port Cap
  • The Luer Lock cap is connected with a blood stopper. This allows air to escape and prevents spilling of blood
