Ateneo de Zamboanga University College of Nursing Nursing Skills Output (NSO) Intravenous Therapy Definition: Is the administration of liquid

substances directly into the vein. Materials/equipment needed:

IV Catheters Procedure: Infusion Sets Alcohol and Betadine Restricting Band Tape Armboard (optional) Labels

Report No. 5

1. To insert a peripheral catheter, a tourniquet is placed above the insertion site,

filling the vein with blood, making it easier to find and enter the vein.
2. The site is cleansed with an antibacterial solution to prevent infection. 3. A local anesthetic may be given just under the skin to ease any discomfort that

may occur during insertion of the catheter.


The catheter is inserted through the skin and into the vein. After entry, the catheter is gently threaded into the vein and the tourniquet removed.

5. The needle used for introduction is removed, and the IV tubing that is connected

to the solution is attached to the catheter, allowing the solution to drip into the vein.
6. The catheter and tubing are securely taped in place.
