Points to Practice


  • Make sure all items are accessible throughout the procedure
  • Prepare insertion site according to your facility policy
  • Prior to venipuncture, hold catheter hub and rotate safety barrel 360 degrees
  • Make sure catheter is seated back in the notch


  • Approach vein slowly at a low angle
  • Observe flashback along the catheter (20, 22 and 24 gauge only); in larger gauge sizes, observe flash behind the white button


  • Upon flashback visualization, lower catheter almost parallel to the skin
  • Before threading, advance entire unit slightly to ensure catheter tip is in the vein
  • Advance catheter into the vein up to the hub, while maintaining skin traction

Needle retraction

  • Release tourniquet
  • Apply digital pressure beyond the catheter tip
  • Gently stabilize catheter hub
  • Press the white button


Secure catheter and apply sterile dressing according to your facility policy.
