Starting an IV

Jacob Windham · September 3, 2020

Intravenous (IV) cannulation is a technique in which a cannula is placed inside a vein to provide venous access. Venous access allows sampling of blood, as well as administration of fluids, medications, parenteral nutrition, chemotherapy, and blood products.

Placing an IV catheter should be focused on positive patient outcomes, completing the necessary or desired therapy.
