Longer I.V. Catheters
Our Emergency Room Docs are looking for longer periph I.V. caths.  The longest I  have found are 1.77 inches.  Anyone know of a company that makes a longer one?

We use a 1.88 inch BD insyte

We use a 1.88 inch BD insyte catheter.  Not much longer.  I can typically get peripheral IVs in 350lbs+ pts c ultrasound using these catheters.  Hope this helps.
