Almost every emergency case
has a catheter inserted to facilitate the administration of fluids or
medication. In particular colic cases often come in severely dehydrated.
In these severe cases of dehydration, you may even want to administer fluids
into both jugular veins. A 9 French Cook catheter is a good choice. This
is larger than the average 14 Gauge catheter that is normally used.
