15/07/2022
Why are most animals quiet during infusions?
Before the infusion, the animals were always in a state of mental stress due to physical discomfort. After the liquid entered the body, the physical discomfort was relieved and the body entered a state of rest.

Why might animals fidget after a period of infusion?
The animal maintains a position for a long time and needs to be adjusted properly, or the animal has an increased urine output and needs to urinate.

Why use an infusion pump?
In order to control the infusion volume and the infusion speed more accurately, to prevent the discomfort caused by the speed of the animals moving fast and slow.
 


Why is the infusion time for small animals so long?
How many days does it take to lose?
The infusion volume and infusion rate of small animals are determined by factors such as their weight, age, physical condition, disease condition, and use of drugs.
The number of days of animal infusion is determined according to the change of disease and physical condition, and there is no way to accurately estimate the time.

What is a venous indwelling needle?
The venous indwelling needle, also known as the venous trocar, is composed of a steel needle core, a soft cannula and a plastic needle seat. When puncturing, the outer cannula and the needle core are pierced into the blood vessel together. It is an infusion tool that withdraws the needle core and only leaves the soft outer cannula in the blood vessel for infusion.

Why do animals use IV catheters?
1. Protect blood vessels
2. Avoid the pain of repeated puncture
3. Feel comfortable
4. Ease of first aid and administration
5. Animals can exercise properly
 


How to use intravenous cannula?
1. Select the vein. Locally shave, tie a pressure cuff 10cm above the puncture point, disinfect the skin as usual, and let it dry.
2. Take out the catheter needle and insert the prepared syringe filled with heparin saline into the heparin cap, taking care to exhaust the air.
3. Remove the needle cover and perform puncture. After seeing the blood return, lower the angle and push the puncture needle into the vein. Pull out the needle core, fix the catheter needle with a special applicator, then fix the heparin cap, and take out the cuff. Wrap the IV needle with an elastic bandage.
4. When the liquid is finished, disconnect the infusion set and seal the tube.

What are the precautions for the use of intravenous indwelling needles in animals?
1. The retention time of the trocar is up to three days. In some cases, it cannot be retained for three days, such as the animal is too active, biting, claws, thick subcutaneous fat, skin pine, etc. Minimizing exercise is recommended.
2. Keep the puncture site clean and dry.
3. Always pay attention to observe whether there are reactions such as redness, swelling, heat, pain, and venous sclerosis - the catheter should be pulled out at any time.
4. Blood may return in the extension tube of the indwelling needle after sealing the tube, which is caused by the change of blood flow pressure and generally does not affect the first day of infusion.
