Estimados todos,

En el contexto del tratamiento de pacientes quemados específicamente del acceso de la vía intravenosa (su colocación e indicaciones):

Two large bore IVs (14-16 gauge angiocath or medicut in the adult) are adequate for even the largest body surface burns.

Mi intento:
- Dos Vías Intravenosas de
gran perforación (con catéter angio de espesor 14-16 o corte medio para adultos) son adecuadas incluso para las superficies corporales con mayor extensión de quemaduras.

Mil gracias por su ayuda!

    I am pretty sure that Angiocath and Medicut both started out as trademarked names, and I believe Medicut is still the name of a company. My impression is that Angiocath nowadays mostly just refers to a particular style of IV catheter.
    That leaves me uncertain what to think about translating them. My dictionary does suggest "angiocatéter" for angiocath.
    What about:
    ... (con catéter de calibre/espesor 14-16 tipo angiocatéter o Medicut para adultos) ...

    Thank you both, after those suggestions I was able to find out that angiocath is most tipically (as Bill Osler says) called angiocatéter, while medicut remains the same (company name). On the other hand, I'll go with calibre as it has more entries in google than espesor. Thank you both for your fantastic help!
