Overview

Intravenous cannulation is a technique which is used to place a cannula inside a vein for the purpose of providing venous access. There are a number of reasons why a doctor or medical team might want venous access. Cannulation can be performed at the scene of an emergency by first responders who want to make sure that they will have access to a vein and it is also routinely done in hospital settings. Intravenous cannulation is one of the earliest skills learned by health care providers like doctors, nurses, and paramedics.
