Appropriate vascular access is fundamental in the management of trauma patients to provide volume replacement, administer medications, monitor hemodynamic parameters, and collect samples for laboratory testing. This chapter will review the most commonly encountered vascular access techniques used in trauma patients. Indications, risks, benefits, and potential complications will be summarized for each. Factors influencing flow • Increasing the radius of an intravenous (IV) catheter exponentially increases flow • Increasing the length of an IV catheter increases resistance and decreases flow
