Clinical Infusion & Injection Accessories
Whether for infusions or injections - parenteral administration of medication offers many advantages and is a procedure that is carried out on patients many thousands of times a day. Parenteral fluid administration relieves the intestinal tract and medicine reaches the blood stream more quickly, allowing it to work faster and have a more targeted effect. Injections and infusions are always carried out with sterile single-use products to avoid cross contamination, prevent infectious diseases and avoid other complications. In this category, you will find accessories for pain free injection and infusion procedures, punctures and blood sample collection, e.g., syringes or cannulas for IM injections.
Information about Injection Sites and their Characteristics
Injections and infusions can be administered using a variety of techniques. However, the most common injection techniques are: subcutaneous, intramuscular, intravenous, intra-arterial or intra-articular. Particularly popular injection sites on the body are the hand, the upper arm, the stomach, the crook of the elbow and the buttock.
Subcutaneous fat tissues (e.g., stomach and thighs of the patient) are the most common injection sites for the administration of insulin and infusion therapies. To guarantee that the medicine is injected into the correct skin layer, the medical professional generally pinches the skin to form a skin fold to inject the needle at the right angle.
Intramuscular injection is a popular procedure for administering vaccinations and medication. In contrast to intravenous injections, intramuscular injections take more time to work and their effects last over a longer time period. The four most common body sites to inject IM injections are the arm, thigh, buttock or hip.
Intravenous injection is a technique that is practised less frequently, as an immediate onset of action is usually not desired and the depot effect of intramuscular injection is preferred for drug administration. On the other hand, IV infusion is the method of choice for almost all infusion therapy, such as volume replacement therapies, parenteral feeding or infusion therapies with special medication.
Different kinds of cannulas and needles can be used, depending on the site, the purpose of the injection and the injection technique, e.g., intramuscular injection. At Praxisdienst, we stock a large assortment of attractively priced butterfly needles, IV cannulas and injection needles.
Inject Safely and Prevent Needlestick Injuries
Most needles and cannulas are also available as safety needles. They are equipped with a safety mechanism, which is activated as soon as the needle leaves the patient's skin. Some products have a safety clip, while other needles retreat into the housing after use. However, what they all have in common is the fact that they protect medical staff from needle related injuries. In addition, our shop offers sharps bins for the safe disposal of used needles.
