: This presentation covers a variety of different techniques of IV catheter placement on ‘naughty’ veins with videos and step-by-step illustrations. Catheter selection and vein selection are discussed. A variety of trouble shooting methods are reviewed of how to get catheters in difficult veins.

: As nurses we place intravenous (IV) cannulas on a daily basis.

From aseptic technique and preparation to handling and personal protective equipment (PPE), these are all factors to consider.
