How iv cannula is used in mostly used in transmission of blood?
I'm not sure if this is too basic for you, but basically it's a tiny little tube, inserted by a needle, that goes into one of your veins. Whatever is put in the IV bag (blood, medicine etc) travels through the tube and into your bloodstream. Some IVs will have drips part way to control the flow of the fluid and make sure there isn't too much going in at once.

There's some more info on cannulas here (http://www.gosh.nhs.uk/teenagers/you...ous-iv-cannula). Hopefully that will cover what you want to know.
