Vein Preservation
needle technology

Introducing our VenaSave® Vein Preservation needle technology solution

We’ve reinvented short peripheral venous access with a simple, but profound idea: Use a
smaller diameter and shorter introducer needle tip to help reduce vein damage.*

The VenaSave Vein Preservation System is based on an innovative
Three Layer Safety Design:


Traditional catheter outer layer


“Smaller” diameter needle and
bevel tip inner layer


Passively activated safety
shield / dilator middle layer

The benefits can be less vein wall damage than from traditional size needle tips, fewer “blown” veins or vein wall irritations such as phlebitis, and reduced leakage at the needle incision site to help reduce infiltrations.

Our specific design advantages

Shorter needle tip to reduce vein wall damage*

Passively activated needlestick safety shield

Tighter catheter wall to vein incision ratio for better Venous Seal
