Purpose

This presentation focused on defining which peripheral catheter should be used for insertion based on tip position and vein selection. There was a review of standards and current evidence on how to use peripheral catheters to achieve optimal results from both a procedure and process perspective. Implications for practice were reviewed and included when, why and how to insert peripheral devices with ultrasound guidance. Limitations and a conceptual framework for practice was offered based on evidence and clinical experience.
