Abstract
Introduction: The objective of the current study was to present data on peripheral nerve injury related to peripheral intravenous therapy obtained through the use of empirical studies and analysis. Materials and Methods: To detect empirical studies, we developed search strategies for use in Medline electronic database, using only related keywords, based on MeSH terms: peripheral nerve injuries, peripheral nerve damage, peripheral intravenous therapy, venipuncture, periphera lintravenous cannulation. The studies included in this analysis were published in English. Results: The likelihood of peripheral nerve injury related to venipuncture and peripheral intravenous cannulation is often citedin the research literature. However, there have been more frequent reports of nerve injury consequent on venepuncture in comparison to rare case reports of peripheral nerve injury from intravenous cannulation. Based on Seddon's classification of nerve injuries, a review of the literature shows incidence of all three types of injury. Conclusions: Peripheral intravenous therapy is the most common procedures performed by nurses in their everyday clinical practice, can cause different types of damage to the peripheral nerves.
