Aguja de mariposa o también aguja pericraneal
Explanation:
En Colombia se usa también el término aguja pericraneal o sólo pericraneal dado que el uso de este tipo de aguja es bastante amplio en pediatría y a los bebés pequeños en ocasiones se les canalizan las venas del cuero cabelludo.

winged-needle


Explanation:
A "winged needle", is actually a small venous cannula, used for infusion of crystalloid solutions (it is too small for blood products or colloid).They are asmall cannulae with a plastic flange on either side, which helps hold them in position. They are most commonly used in: paediatrics - because they are so small and therefore less painful, on anaesthetic induction, and for the infusion of sub-cutaneous medication - commonly continuous infusion of opiod analgaesia. They are known colloquially in the Uk as a "butterfly" - not a winged needle. Hope this helps!
