What makes a vein good or bad for peripheral IV access? Why does it matter? Clinicians should consider multiple factors in their decision of where to access a vein and where the tip of the peripheral IV (PIV) lies. This webinar will evaluate these clinical factors and their impact on both insertional success and catheter dwell time.
Technology for more informed PIV access is readily available. The use of near-infrared (NIR) vein visualization, recognized by the Infusion Nurses Society, can help clinicians identify potential obstacles to PIV success. Better choice of PIV access site may help catheter placement success and longevity, as well as improve patient satisfaction.
