Step 20: Tape the tubing, if needed, just below the butterfly wings
- Tape just below the butterfly wings if needed to hold it in place.
- Use paper tape. Paper tape is a special tape made to be used on skin. It comes off easily without hurting.
Caution: Taping on top of the butterfly wings may move the needle out of the vein.
