Once the catheter is in position, the needle is withdrawn whilst gentle pressure is applied to the catheter to keep it in place within the vein. The other end of the catheter with the metal tube is inserted into the compression hub of the extension set. The compression hub is twisted to tighten it. Following this the catheter and extension set is secured in place.
