Needles, Injection, Intravenous, Scalp-Vein/Pediatric

Definition : Intravenous injection needles designed for short-term therapeutic infusion of fluids into the scalp veins, other small-diameter peripheral veins, and the veins of pediatric patients. These needles typically include a thin-walled, stainless steel, beveled cannula (18 to 27 gauge is typical), usually 3/4 inches (19 mm) in length, for introduction into the veins; wings that help with the insertion and add protection to inadvertent pullout; and a tube (e.g., 30 cm in length) to be attached to a syringe or other infusion device.
