Blunt Needles

Blunt Needles substitute for traditional hypodermic needles. Caregivers can use a Blunt Needle for preparing and dispensing medications to patients usually through an IV device rather than injected directly into the patient. Blunt Needles offer caregivers additional safety from accidental needle sticks and less cost. Blunt Needles are often referred to as Blunt Tip NeedlesBlunt Cannula or Transfer Needles.

Manufacturers of Blunt Cannula make two basic types of these Blunt Tip Needles; namely, Blunt Fill Needles and the Blunt Filter Needles. A Blunt Filter Needle has a small micron filter embedded in the needle hub used to strain particles. Blunt Fill Needles; however, do not have filters.
