Different IV Catheter options

When notating an IV catheter the only available options are for a cephalic, jugular, or saphenous catheters.  However, sometimes we place a pedal, medial saphenous,  or in rare cases an arterial.  There is unotunately no option for noting this.  This would be super helpful going forward to keep everything clear between nurse shift changes.

    Hi Jennifer,

    Thank you very much for adding this idea! Do you know that we have an option allowing to enter any type of catheter you need? All you need to do is to use the blank field on the right side of catheter options and click "Done". Could you please check screenshots attached below? Is that helpful for you? 

    Please let us know if we understood your request correctly or if you need any further help!

    The open box is somewhat helpful.  However, there is still no option for notating front/rear limb, or media/lateral saphenous.   Ther are also different length catheters that we may use, i.e. sampling lines, jugular catheters, and whether or not it may be a single vs double vs triple lumen.

    After speaking with a client and making a quick mock up thoughts on this?

    Better than the pdfs

    Most of our patients have 2 or more IV catheters at any given time.  It would be great to have the ability to document this.

    This would be a super helpful option to have for many surgical patients!

    An option to notate multiple catheters including central lines, picc lines and art lines would be amazing

    This would be ideal.  We rarely have a patient with only 1 IVC.  Please make this a reality.
