Cannula fixation plasters from Hartmann, Lohmann & Rauscher, B. Braun and Nobamed
Cannula fixation is a technique used to hold catheters in place and prevent them from being accidentally removed or slipping. The IV cannula is inserted into a vein to administer medications or fluids or to draw blood. A fixed cannula helps make treatment safer and more comfortable for the patient while minimizing the risk of infection or complications.
Using special patches for fixation is a quick and easy method and prevents accidental removal of the cannula. It is important to change the cannula regularly to minimize the risk of infection or complications. It is also important to ensure that the fixed cannula is not over-tightened to avoid compromising blood flow.
