1

Backcheck Valve

A device that functions to prevent retrograde solution flow

2

Cannula

A flexible tube that may be inserted into a duct, cavity, or blood vessel to deliver a medication or drain fluid. It may be guided by a sharp, pointed instrument (stylet); also called a catheter

3

Catheter (IV)

A cannula inserted into a vein to administer fluids or medications or to measure pressure

4

Drip Chamber

Area of the IV administration set usually found under the spike where the solution drips and collects before running through the IV tubing

5

Drop Factor

The number of drops needed to deliver 1 mL of fluid

6

Elastomeric Pump

A portable infusion device with a balloon (elastomeric reservoir) made of soft rubberized material that is inflated with medication to a predetermined volume; when the tubing is unclamped, positive pressure is exerted to deliver the infusion

7

Electronic Infusion Device

An infusion pump powered by electricity or battery; programmed to regulate the IV flow rate

8

Filter

A special porous device used for eliminating certain elements, as in particles of a certain size in a solution

9

Gauge

Size of cannula opening; a standard measurement

10

Hub

Female connection point of an IV catheter where the IV administration set or syringe is attached

11

Infusate

Refers to medications or solutions administered via an infusion

12

Lumen

The space within a tubular structure, such as an artery, vein, or cathter

13

Luer-Lock

A design that incorporates a threaded sleeve on a male luer

14

Macrodrip

In IV therapy, an administration set that delivers measured amounts of IV solutions at a specific flow rate based on the size of the drops of the solution

15

Microdrip

In IV therapy, an administration set that delivers small amounts of IV solutions; drop factor of 60 drops/mL

16

Midline Catheter

A longer peripheral catheter that is placed in a peripheral vein, generally inserted about hte antecubital fossa, with the catheter tip residing level at or near the level of the axilla and distal to the shoulder; in infants, a midline catheter may be placed in a scalp vein with the tip terminating in the jugular vein above the clavicle or in the leg with the tip below the inguinal crease

17

Multichannel Pump

Electronic infusion device that delivers multiple drugs or solutions simultaneously or intermittently from bags, bottles, or syringes

18

Neddleless Connector

A device attached to the hub of the peripheral IV catheter or central vascular access device that allows the tip of a syringe or male luer end of the IV administration set to be attached

19

Over-The-Needle Catheter

A device that consists of a needle with a catheter sheath; the needle is removed, leaving a plastic catheter in place; the most common type of peripheral IV catheter

20

Patient-Controlled Analgesia (PCA)

A drug delivery system that dispenses a preset intravascular dose of a narcotic analgesic when the patient pushes a switch on an electric cord

21

Port

Point of entry

22

Primary Administration Set

Device used for delivery of parenteral solutions

23

PSI

Pounds per square inch; a measurement of pressure: 1 psi equals 50 mm Hg or 68 cm H2O

24

Radiopaque

Material used in IV catheter that can be identified by radiographic examination

25

Secondary Administration Set

Administration set that has short tubing used for delivery of 50 to 150 mL (or sometimes greater volumes of up to 500 mL) of infusion attached to primary administration set for intermittent delivery of medication or solutions

26

Stylet

Needle or guide that is found inside a catheter; used for vein penetration and removed after catheter insertion

27

Syringe Pump

Piston-driven pumps that provide precise infusion by controlling the rate of drive and syringe size
