Flow through intravenous cannulae.


The flows through intravenous cannulae, generated using the test described in British Standard 4843, are presented for all the cannulae available in the United Kingdom. These flows are compared to those obtained using clinical apparatus with two different pressure gradients. The implications of these results in selecting suitable intravenous cannulae and the other factors influencing flows through cannulae are discussed.
