I notice nice veins!

  1. 6 OK, it's getting bad. I'm watching 48 hrs. They show a close up of the detective writing a note on his pad. My first thought? 'What a nice vein!'. I could get an 18 gauge in that one, no prob.

    Good Grief...

    I do it! I love to look at good veins! Although sometimes I think it's more satisfying to have to search a little bit

    I'd get a chest decompression needle in, so there!

    "If you ever experienced major blood loss, you might be okay." FYI this observation does not go over well.

    Me too! I fiddle with my husband's wrist and arm veins absentmindedly until he gets irritated and tells me to quit.

    Going for the antecubital vein is my preferable location...

    Haha, same here. I watched Thor: The Dark World recently, and in the scene where the actor Chris Hemsworth was washing his arms , all I could think was "Dang, those VEINS!"

    I once read something titled "you might be an emergency nurse if..." One of them was "if you study the veins of the other people in line checking out at the grocery store." It might be a bit creepy, but I do it!
