Detailed Description

Nipro® I.V. catheters come with a fully transparent flashback chamber for immediate confirmation of venipuncture.
The incorporated hydrophobic membrane filter allows air to vent easily with virtually no resistance, which results in a rapid blood return even in the smaller gauge sizes.
Each Nipro® I.V. catheter is individually packed in a sterile, easy-to-open plastic case.
This rigid plastic case provides added protection to both the catheter and the user. 
The case is color-coded for easy identification of the catheter gauge and has a tamper-evident seal for additional safety.
You won't be able to tell the difference between Nipro and Terumo — except the price!
 
Who invented the IV catheter that we use today? His name is Jim Sorenson, and I 'll bet you never heard of him! James Sorenson (1922-) is the founder of Sorenson Companies, a parent company of 32
corporations. A noted philanthropist, he is currently the richest man in Utah
and 50th in the U.S., according to Forbes World's Richest People. With only a
high school diploma, he made a fortune in local real estate before expanding in
other directions such as innovative technology. Sorenson holds roughly 60
patents, and is credited with a number of medical inventions including the
disposable surgical mask and the disposable venous catheter. One of his
companies, Sorenson Genomics, has also begun a genetic database known as the
Molecular Genealogy Research Project, and claims to be the only laboratory in
the world to have successfully identified victims of the 2004 tsunami in
Thailand.
