Spanish term or phrase:vía (in this context)
This is when they are going to "insertar una vía I.V. en un paciente" so that she can administer her own chemo at home, as they had problems finding a vein. Normally I'd just use "drip" or "tube" but am not sure if this is strictly correct in this case.
Asker: Thanks a lot. This is a personal query, as I was talking about a friend's mother who was in hospital having a "vía" inserted for chemo delivery when I realised I didn't know how to say it in English!
