Indwelling Cannula Method
A method most common in Europe and other parts of the globe. This method is similar to the standard needle method most commonly used in North America. It uses a hollow needle as well, but it also contains a cannula. A cannula is a plastic tube, which is also hollow and it is located at the end of the needle. The nose pin is then inserted into the back of the cannula, and the cannula and nose pin are pulled through the nose at the same time. This method protects the piercing from possible irritation from external threading during the intial piercing, and helps to prevent the nose pin from slipping when its inserted.
