Current knowledge and approaches in peripheral intravenous catheter practice
Peripheral intravenous catheterization is one of the most common invasive nursing interventions applied to hospitalized patients. This intervention, which is of great importance for the effective implementation of treatment, is performed using a peripheral intravenous catheter. In peripheral intravenous catheter applications, local and systemic complications may occur due to application errors and care deficiencies. These complications cause patients to be exposed to unnecessary diagnostic procedures and treatment, prolonged hospitalization, and increased mortality and morbidity rates. In this context, it is very important for healthcare professionals, especially nurses, to integrate the data obtained from current research and guidelines on peripheral intravenous catheter applications into their practices. In this review, the points to be considered in peripheral intravenous catheter applications and the basic principles of catheter intervention are summarized with the current literature.
