Add. tip: NEVER hold the skin taut above the needle insertion site. This can lead to needle sticks. Holding it taut below the site is more than enough

Yes :) I’m just showing that despite tourniquet removal, pressure should be applied slightly above the catheter

Also depends on the IV you’re using. You don’t always have to occlude because some devices do it for you.

Just the other day I didn't apply any pressure, just tell patient to raise hand so it doesn't flow like I used to do it, but this time it bled so much
