A Teflon-metal assembly which permits easy arterial cannulation is described. Only a flexible Teflon sheath-obturator is left in place after insertion. The use of this flexible indwelling arterial cannula is readily adaptable to both elective laboratory and intensive care applications and provides advantages over rigid cannulas. These hidwelling arterial Teflon cannulas have remained in place for prolonged periods of time without adverse thromboembolic, infectious or traumatic complications.
