VOMED VERESS Cannula, Cut-in point

The VERESS cannulae.
Reduced risk of injury for operations in the abdominal cavity. 

The VERESS insufflation cannulae was developed in 1932 by the surgeon János Veres (today's spelling of "VERESS cannulae" is based on a typographical error when the instrument was presented in the Deutsche Medizinische Wochenschrift (weekly German medical journal) in 1938).
The VERESS cannulae consists of a sharp hollow needle and a blunt stylet.
To prevent injuries to the internal organs, this is pushed back when puncturing the tissue and slides forward again after penetration via the spring mechanism.

The VERESS cannulae is connected to the gas supply via the one-way cock. The abdominal wall is raised by the gas flowing in (CO2) . This makes it easier for the operator to insert the trocars in the abdominal cavity and again reduces the risk of injury to internal organs.

The VERESS cannulae is available in lengths of between 80 mm and 250 mm.

VOMED Three-Way-Stopcock

The three-way stopcock.
For two infusions one after the other or alternately.

The three-way stopcock is used for transporting liquids or gases.
By altering the position of the stopcock, all flow directions can be opened or closed one at a time or together.

The great advantage of the three-way stopcock in medical applications is that the patient can be given two infusions one after the other or alternately via one intravenous instrument.
However, the three-way stopcock is also used in industrial applications, namely as a mixer valve and as a distributor valve.
