Venesection Supplies for Surgeries, Naturopaths & Hospitals
Venesection is a famous, yet antique treatment that can still be used for certain diseases or naturopathy, today. With venesection, a considerable amount of blood (usually between 250 and 500 ml) is drawn from the patient. Most often, venesection is carried out with a blood collection set and a vacutainer.
A blood collection set is a special venesection device that consists of 2 cannulas connected by a transparent plastic tube. One cannula is used to puncture the patient, while the other is stuck into the vacutainer. This is how the blood is drawn from the patient's vein and directly into the vacutainer. The use of blood collection sets and vacutainers makes the venesection process extremely hygienic and fast. Venesection is often used for patients with hemochromatosis or polycythemia.
In the category Venesection, you will find Strauss needles, vacutainers and blood collection sets for venesection procedures within your practice.
