insuflon makes injections more convenient & comfortable. Currently, insuflon is being used successfully in many specialties throughout the hospital and at home to administer subcutaneous medications.

Although some patients dont mind frequent daily injections, many object to this painful inconvenience. For these people an alternative may be insuflon, an indwelling subcutaneous soft cannula. insuflon can be used by adults and children (even infants) and was initially designed to help children and their families to come to terms with diabetes. By virtually eliminating the needle pain associated with daily injections, insuflon can increase therapy compliance.

insuflon is gentle

insuflon consists of a soft cannula that is gentle to the tissues. It is small and easy to handle, only 18mm (0.71?) long and 0.6mm (0.02?) outer diameter. Insertion of insuflon is simple. It is inserted subcutaneously into the fatty tissue of the body at a 20-45 angle. The steel needle, which is used to introduce insuflon, is then removed leaving the soft cannula in place.insuflon has a small membrane through which medication can be injected painlessly. insuflon is held in place by a skin-friendly adhesive with a built-in see through window to allow visual inspection of the injection site. The insuflon port is not for infusion it is for injection only.

insuflon is safe to use

  • The adhesive material is soft and comfortable to the tissue with little risk that insuflon will scrape or cause irritation.
  • Leading pediatric hospitals use insuflon to administer most of the medications which are given subcutaneously: insulin, heparin, G-CSF, morphine, growth hormones
