History of B. Braun
Good ideas, ground-breaking innovations and entrepreneurial responsibility: that sums up the history of B. Braun. It all began in 1839, when Julius Wilhelm Braun bought the Rose Pharmacy in Melsungen.
The challenges have changed since the early 19th century. But then, and now, our goals are: create innovations in medical therapies and recognize what is important during exchanges with customers and partners. In six generations, the enterprise has developed into a global company with subsidiaries on every continent.

CRRT Podcast with Dr. Alex

The podcast discussed CRRT (see Ellis-Smith pictured with B. Braun's OMNI machine) as well as the challenges in ICU currently.
The IV Therapy team have supported 31 NHS Trusts
With over 1/3 of adults classified as difficult intravenous access patients (DIVAS), the IV Therapy team have supported 31 NHS Trusts with the implementation of our Introcan Safety Deep Access IV Catheter since we launched this product in 2020.
Through this work B. Braun are ensuring that the right patients are receiving the right line, at the right time, while in turn reducing the risk of infection, delayed treatment and length of stay for patients.
Furthermore, Introcan Safety Deep Access is proving to play an important role in delivering the IV Therapy team strategy of converting the market to non ported cannula.
Various NHS Trusts who have historically resisted the concept are now engaging and seeing the benefits that this can bring for all of their patients.
