Abstract:

It is estimated that approximately half the number of all patients admitted to hospital require the insertion of an intravenous cannula into a peripheral vein, for the administration of intravenous fluids, medications and blood products. It is the most common invasive clinical procedure performed in hospitals worldwide (Webster et al, 2008; Ahlqvist et al, 2010).
