An Intravenous (I.V.) Cannula is a medical device used to insert a thin, flexible tube into a patient’s vein for various medical purposes, such as administering medications, fluids, or collecting blood samples. The cannula typically consists of a plastic or metal hub with a sharp, beveled needle at one end and a hollow, cylindrical tube extending from the other end. Once the needle is successfully inserted into a patient’s vein, the needle is removed, leaving only the tube inside the vein. This tube allows healthcare professionals to deliver fluids or medications directly into the patient’s bloodstream, making it a vital tool for a wide range of medical treatments. I.V. cannulas come in various sizes, with different gauges and lengths to accommodate specific patient needs and treatment requirements. They play a crucial role in providing quick and efficient access to the circulatory system for medical interventions.
