There were no statistically significant differences in pressure-bag flow rates for 1L of NS through all three ports of a standard triple-lumen catheter (TLC) compared to a 16 gauge peripheral venous catheter (PVC) or a 6Fr sheath introducer. On gravity-flow, it was not statistically different from a 16 gauge PVC. But 14ga PVC and 8.5Fr sheath rates were superior in both instances.

It is time to change hospital NPO policies for the ED.
