What is Intravenous (IV) Cannulation and what are the uses of IV Cannulas?
Intravenous cannulation is a process, in which a cannula is inserted in a vein to provide access for multiple actions such as blood sampling, administration of fluids, medication, parenteral nutrition, chemotherapy for cancer drugs and various other blood products.IV cannulas are available in different gauge sizes and in general the smallest gauge should be used to effectively administer the fluid. This ensures that there is limited trauma to the vein. In case of emergencies, the larger sizes can be used for greater flow rates can be maintained for required fluids. In short, IV cannulas are used to perform the following functions: regular blood sampling, monitoring and administration of intra venous fluids, administration of chemotherapy drugs through the IV route, channel for IV nutrition and IV control of radiologic agents such as those used in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), CT scans (computed tomography) and nuclear imaging.
