Peripheral IJ

This IV has found the name peripheral IJ.  It is a peripheral IV catheter that is inserted in the INTERNAL jugular vein under ultrasound guidance with sterile but non-barrier technique.  It is really nice in patients who need access for less than 72 hours when the nurses (and you) are having trouble getting a traditional peripheral IV.  Be sure to use a longer 2.5 inch catheter.  5 minute video here.
