Whether drawing blood specimens or starting IVs, venipuncture is the most commonly performed invasive medical procedure. It is also one that frequently requires additional time and multiple attempts to be successful. In fact, establishing IV access in difficult patients can take up to 10 minutes.
The Cost of Failed Attempts
- Blood tests that facilitate diagnosis and patient management may be delayed;
- Intravenous therapy may not begin promptly;
- Physician intervention to access a difficult vein can erode productivity;
- Patients may endure unnecessary needlesticks and additional discomfort;
- Stress may increase for both patients and staff.
