Insuflon Subcutaneous Injection Port
The Insuflon is a soft, flexible teflon catheter which is inserted into the skin for periods of up to 5 days. Thereafter all injections are given through the silicon sealing membrane incorporated into the end of the device. This completely eliminates the pain associated with injections and ensures a more uniform dispersion of the drug by allowing infusion into a consistent location for each injection.
The soft fabric retaining pad secures the device in place and cushions the hub of the injector to ensure maximum patient comfort. There is a transparent ‘window’ which allows a view of the actual injection site to observe any incidences of leakage or irritation.
The Insuflon is particularly valuable to children or in any case where repeated needle insertions are undesirable.
