It makes sense to me, but not sure if anyone reading it will understand :p:

Not all of it, and it's a good starting point before going on to other things (then you find out if things aren't right) :yep:

By that argument, the government should stop funding all these fashion management and media studies students... They all do 4 years at uni for nothing.
Best idea I've heard in a while.

Really silly question, but I've seen different cannulae used, and all seem to attach to triple ports (the bits hanging off for you to put lines in) are they all individually capped - as in capped from the outside world? If not, why dosn't blood come out? - and don't say venous pressure, because when you insert the cannula the flashback pressure is enough. Really silly question I know.

Yer, all the lumen will be closed off with a luer lock cap or bionector (http://www.vygonvet.co.uk/228-bionector.html ) or similar.

Not to mention that once you remove the needle, the cannula bleeds like hell until you put the cap on it.

The answer is one-way valves - you don't ever take anything out of a cannula extension port.

Lies - you can bleed them, but usually only once.

They're soooooooo far away :sad: plus with enough medicine, to be learnt between now and then, to emotionally castrate a small pony. *sigh*

Tip 1) press down on the vein proximal to the cannula to stop it bleeding everywhere

Tip 2) if you use a cannula in the resus or a really sick surgical patient on the ward and a nurse puts that octopus on, take it off, stamp on it repeatedly, then connect the line up to the cannula itself.

Yeah ok, I'll give you that. I still don't like it though, i don't get how such a widely used textbook has things in it that are blatantly wrong - it just makes more work for people by having to scout around for the right thing, we have enough to do withouh that.

I kept seeing this, even in A&E, we'd get two oranges or greys in an someone would still try to insist on squeezing blood through a three lumen octopus. :no:
