IV cannulation (IV catheter) is the process by which the cannula is inserted into a vein in order to provide venous access for the medical professional. This is vitally important, as it allows them to provide a number of vital roles that otherwise would be close to impossible.

Understanding our customer and patient needs is a key priority at IPU. Our extensive experience in the development and production of IV catheters provides customers with advanced features to help clinicians provide the best patient care and improve clinical outcomes. These technologies are focused on minimizing the number of sticks and unnecessary IV starts per patient, enabling a better patient experience.

For example, in order to provide unresponsive patients with nutrients and fluids, using an IV catheter is the right way. IV catheters can help when venous access is required especially for chemotherapy, supply of medications, blood samples etc.

As veins are a made of very delicate tissues, obtaining a solid and reliable access may be an issue, as it may lead to potentially fatal consequences for the patient. This is why having a top quality type of IV catheter is so important. There is little to no margin for error when it comes to these matters.

As there is a unidirectional flow of blood in venous valves, the passage of a catheter into the vein can often, be impeded. This is why only special technology is used, to take out the guesswork for the exact locations of valve and other components.

IPU and their role in the production of IV catheters

The IV catheter is integral to modern medicine. It is used hundreds, if not thousands of times a day in a hospital. The type of IV catheter that is being used is important. The medical professional who is obtaining the venous access needs to be fully confident that there are no flaws with the medical device they are using. This allows them to be sure of themselves and completes their task seamlessly and effectively.

The design team at IPU takes care when it comes out even the tiniest of details. The team is highly experienced when it comes to the IV catheter and they know what is vitally important in the design of the device and those factors which do not need as much attention.
