Dr.Thomas , the senior anesthetist describes the correct way to put an IV line/drip for children.
A tourniquet (elastic belt) is put around your child’s arm or leg. Your child will need to be held still while a small needle is put into a vein. Once the needle is in the vein, the ‘steel’ part of the needle is removed and a plastic tube is left in the vein. The plastic tube will be held in place with tape and bandages and a padded board placed to keep the closest joint still.
