Peripheral intravenous catheter infographics

1 Jul 2022

Downloadable versions of the peripheral intravenous catheter (PIVC) infographics. There is an 'adult' and a 'paediatric' infographic that have the exact same information but just a different photo. They are available as on screen or print versions, in portrait and landscape and can be printed in A4 and A3 size.

The on screen versions can be printed or used in electronic displays. The print versions have crop marks and can be provided to a printer, to print and crop on your behalf.

It is recommended that you download, print, and post them in clinical and staff areas around your hospital. There is also an option to have A3 size sent to you from the Commission. 

These can be ordered here:
