Material used in IV catheter that can be identified by radiographic examination Radiopaque
Administration set that has short tubing used for delivery of 50-150 ML (or sometimes greater volumes of up to 500 ML) of infusion attached to primary administration set for intermittent delivery of medication or solutions Secondary administration set
Needle or guy that is found inside a catheter used for vein penetration and removed after catheter insertion Stylet
Piston driven pumps that provide precise infusion by controlling the rate of drive speed syringe size Syringe pump
A long-term type of central vascular access device; the proximal end of the catheter is Tunnel subcutaneously from the insertion site and brought out through the skin it and exit site Subcutaneously tunneled catheter
