Figure 0001: SWG 20 outer teflon sheath and SWG 18 metal stylet of conventional intravenous cannula

Mentions: We made an indigenous version with two locally available intravenous cannula (KETHINTM) size 18 and 20 SWG [Figure 1]. Under all sterile condition stylet of size 18 cannula was inserted into size 20 outer Teflon sheath with a gentle force. Due to this force teflon sheath gets detached from its junction at wings (point A), if not then we made a cut at this junction with a sterile blade so the sheath advances tightly on bigger size stylet leaving approximately 2-3 cm of bare area over metal stylet (between point A and B, respectively) where we attached crocodile clip of nerve locator. Then with a sterile surgical blade we removed excess teflon sheath at bevel level to leave the tip bare [Figure 2].
