What you'll learn

Venous access is one of the most basic and critical components of patient care both in hospitals and in ambulatory patient settings. Safe and reliable venous access is an important issue in daily practice. Venous cannulation is used for intravenous administration of fluids, drugs, parenteral nutrition, or radio-opaque contrast media; also, to allow frequent or repeated blood sampling.

Most of the ambulatory patients in critical care and inpatients need venous access when they are unable to be fed by the oral method. Knowledge of anatomy and physiology of veins and arteries, which veins to be used for venous cannulation is very important for health care professionals to immediately manage the emergency and treat the patients.

This module teaches you how to safely prepare for and perform the insertion of a venous cannula.
