Varcose Vein Break And Pain
Is it possible for an IV needle/catheter to break off in vein and what would be the consequences and intervention if so?
Yes: They can break but rare. They will break if they are not in the vein usually and they will get stuck under the skin, even if they break in the vein there is nothing to do surgically.

I've superfic. Thromboph. In my hand following an IV. Hard vein, sensitivity. Can blood clots break loose and travel to lungs=death? When shall I worry
Treat the thromboph: Anytime the veins are inflamed, there is a potential for thrombosis and thrombi can break off and travel to the right side of the heart and from there to the lung. However, the balancing system of thrombolysis can dissolve the thrombus and anticoagulant drugs can prevent it from forming in the first place. Not every thromboembolus leads to death, especially if you have healthy lungs. ...Read more

Doctor can check: If a person breaks blood vessels more easily than other people do, there may be a problem.

You bleed: Although some bleeding is usual after a traumatic puncture or laceration, the way to identify if you damaged a big vessel is by the amount of bleeding and the difficulty in stopping the bleeding.

Swelling bruise: A 'popped vein' may mean that the vein 'leaked'. Veins are tubes containing blood -so they don't pop like a balloon. However, if a vein is injured -usually a direct impact or injury - the vein can 'suddenly' leak. In that case, you would experience a rapidly developing bruise with swelling and sometimes pain. A normal vein clots quickly, so the leak will stop limiting the swelling. ...Read more
