What is the recommended needle gauge for an arterial puncture?
For an adult, use a 20-gauge, 2.5-inch needle for a femoral sample and a 22 gauge, 1.25 inch needle for a radial artery puncture. For pediatric arterial sampling, use a needle with a slightly shorter length in the range of 22 to 24 gauge at the same sites as in adults.
