Medifix Limited announces the launch of U-Cannula™, designed to help doctors to cannulate with ease, reducing the number of attempts to cannulate successfully and prevent the spreading of hospital acquired infections like MRSA. Medifix has successfully re-designed, patented and produced the U-Cannula, optimised the technique and incorporated needle tip protection. The U-Cannula™ can help prevent accidental needle stick injuries and cannula fracture.

U-Cannula™ Helps Prevent Needlestick Injuries to Medical Staff

The U-Cannula™ has a knob placed on the surface of the body and is connected internally to a plunger. Retracting the knob will facilitate smooth forward movement of the cannula and thus reduce jerky thrust of the needle tip. The needle guard of the plunger will move forward smoothly behind the cannula hub and thus cover the tip of the needle and prevent needle stick injury. Medifix has blocked forward movement of the knob to block re-introduction of needle into the cannula to offer protection from cannula fracture. This method is operator controlled and will not require any retraining.

U-Cannula™ is especially designed to help doctors to cannulate with ease, reduce the number of attempts to cannulate successfully and prevent spreading hospital acquired infections like MRSA, MSSA, HIV, Clostridium, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C. The U-Cannula™ prevents accidental needle stick injuries and cannula fracture.

U-Cannula™ Developed to Reduce Needlestick Injury and Lower Costs

There is now considerable interest in changing the technique of cannulation due to problems with needle stick injuries and the spreading of hospital acquired infections. Reintroduction of a cannula needle tip through the hub or the re-use of a cannula in order to save costs can increase the danger of introducing infections, cannula tip fracture and embolisation. This issue has not been addressed by cannula manufacturers and is essential in the interest of patient safety. The sharp end of the needle is exposed when the needle is removed and may result in accidental injury to medical staff or the patient.

Both the US and the UK have implemented new regulations to prevent use of any sharp objects without protective mechanisms. Medical product manufacturers have developed various methods and devices offering protection. Only 20% of hospitals have complied with the regulations by using available devices due to the issue of escalating costs.

U-Cannula™ was initially developed to reduce the number of attempts required to successfully cannulate a vein. This reduction in discarded cannula will reduce needlestick injury and associated costs. Medifix has also provided a needle guard to prevent needlestick injuries. The Medifix cannula is the only one to offer four methods of use.
