Abstract: Intravenous medications are vital in the management of hospitalized patients and complications are associated with them. The objectives were to assess the indwelling time and intravenous complications using Vialon- and Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) Peripheral Cannulae. Quantitative experimental research was used.120 subjects were randomly divided into experimental (Vialon-) and control (PTFE) group. Information sheet, recording sheet and observation checklist were used. The findings revealed Vialon- Cannulae permitted increased indwelling time (64.5 hours), resulted in less intravenous complications (31.7 %) and less mean phlebitis score (0.23) as compared to PTFE Cannulae (52.9 hours), more intravenous complications (58 %) and more mean phlebitis score (0.48).
