Medical - Medical (general) / perifer venekanyle
Norwegian term or phrase: stasen
This concerns 'innlegging av perifer venekanyle, infusjonsteknikk', where:
Hematom gir hevelse på innstikkstedet som skyldes blødning. Opptrer oftest like etter at stikket er utfort, mens *stasen* sitter på. Is this a 'stasis', or does that word describe a patient's condition rather than an instrument?
Advice appreciated.
Further up in the document, 'staseslangen' is apparently a tourniquet.

Explanation:
"Stasen" refers to the same as "staseslangen", it's the tourniquet you get on your arm.
