Ⅱ. The composition and principle of disposable veress needle

(1) Composition of veress needle

Veress needle is a medical device used for abdominal puncture, which consists of veress needle, stylet, handle, etc. The disposable veress needle is mainly composed of the outer sheath of the veress needle, the inner core of the veress needle and the ventilation switch. The diameter of the outer sheath of the disposable veress needle is generally about 2mm, and the lengths are 80mm, 120mm, 150mm and other different specifications, consisting of a sharp needle sheath and a blunt needle core. The front of the needle core is blunt, hollow, and has side holes. The side holes can be injected by gas, water injection and suction in the needle core.

(2) The principle of veress needle

The veress needle has a spring protection device, so when the abdominal wall is punctured, the needle core is retracted into the needle sheath against resistance, and the tip of the needle sheath can penetrate the abdominal wall. When the needle sheath pierces the peritoneum into the abdominal cavity, the abdominal cavity is filled with carbon dioxide gas, and the resistance disappears. At this time, the needle core pops out when the spring is met, and the tip of the pneumoperitoneum can be blunted, which can avoid stabbing the abdominal organs. But please note that the single-use veress needle will lose its protective effect when there is adhesion in the abdominal cavity.
