New iv Catheter Concept

Innovative needle holder designed to improve insertion success, low resistance backstop valve eliminating blood spill and dislocation during insertion, dressing is part of the catheter assembly ensuring aseptic fixation…


Dressing for fixation is a part of the catheter

One step single hand insertion procedure and easy dressing fixation. Needle holder designed to facilitate vessel puncture and stabilize the catheter when advancing further into the vessel.

Aseptic sealing of the insertion site to minimize the risk for external contamination and movements of the catheter, thus reducing the risk of thrombophlebitis

Low profile of side port and cap to enhance patient comfort and minimize risk for accidental dislodgement or sticking to garment

Waterproof and breathable dressing

Backstop valve reduces the risk for blood contact exposure during the insertion procedure. The low resistance valve decrease the risk for extravasal displacement of the catheter end when removing the insertion needle

Backstop valve with a patent function at pressure up to 300mmHg and more than 100 repetitive cycles of luer male connects.


Lower hub profile vs standard catheters, reduces the risk for displacement.

Insertion Technique

Novovene has several interacting inventive steps to reduce the number of complications and mitigate the effects of thrombophlebitis. It also has an integrated blood control function to prohibit blood spill and contamination when inserting the catheter.

Insertion of a catheter for peripheral venous access is the most common invasive procedure related to medical care among both hospital inpatients and outpatients. A main perspective has focused on the safety of health care workers managing the handling of patients in respect to the risk for needle stick injury. Integrated blood control solutions of different complexity have lately also been introduced as a protective mean against blood spill.

The most frequent device related patient complication consists of thrombophlebitis. The reported incidence of thrombophlebitis following the use of peripheral venous cannulation from several publications have shown startling figures of 20% to 80% in hospital treated patients. This complication can ultimately lead to sepsis resulting in increased hospital costs and an increased mortality risk.
Common causes are insufficient fixation resulting in movements of the catheter at the insertion site promoting bacterial contamination from surrounding tissue, as well as repeated failed insertion attempts. Our main goal has been to address these issues as well as developing means for eliminating blood spill at the insertion. This was accomplished by the introduction of a needle holder to enhance insertion, a simple low friction valve, and an integrated dressing assembly.
