Access Needle

Access to the port must always be achieved with a non-coring needle characterized by a deflected point and side opening .


    Non-coring needles are available in straight or right-angled.  Both types can be used for all procedures and when maintaining access.  The straight non-coring needle is available with a device to “grip” and stabilize the needle during insertion and some are produced with a tubing extension set attached.  The gripper is removed before the site is dressed.
