Sometimes people do not know that infusion has finished due to negligence and there is no more liquid medicine in infusion tube. Then, air will enter human body blood vessels through tubing and this may cause air embolism which is quite dangerous for patients’ lifes. Now Dr. Ball can solve this problem. When liquid medicine is used up, a buoyancy ball will block the catheter mouth which results in the condition that air can not go into the tube, meanwhile it keeps a tube of liquid medicine to prevent blood backflow.
