KRUUSE IV Catheters

KRUUSE IV Catheters are thoughtfully designed with sharp needles and long bevels
to minimise pain and discomfort during placement. Blood is visible via transparent
flash-back chambers to ensure correct placement.

Catheter Placement

The most common IV catheter placement in small animals is in the cephalic vein located on the dorsal foreleg. Vena saphena lateralis on the hind leg or vena jugularis are also options, but less common for ordinary IV catheter placement.

Catheter size should be based on the type and size of patient and treatment. If you are dealing with a shock patient, choose the largest catheter possible.

The larger the catheter diameter, the faster fluid inflow. Another general guideline is; that shorter catheters provide faster inflow. When not dealing with shock patients or severely dehydrated patients, choose a catheter size with space between the catheter and the vein wall, which will reduce the risk of phlebitis.
