Needle, intravenous perfusion


Needle, around 1920



A first attempt on humans to inject a liquid intravenously, took place on March 22, 1668 by the Breslauer physician Joh. Daniel MAJOR (1634-1693). Only in the second half of the 19th century was the method rediscovered by the Berlin Albert LANDERER (1854-1904), who in 1881 infused the first saline solution.


Presented is a needle (without lateral openings !) for intraveinous administration, mounted on original rubber tubing - with viewing window.
