I am an ER nurse, been on this area for 5 months already. Everyday I get to perform IV insertions to my patients. I encounter little problem with adult patients. But pediatric admissions are like nightmares for me. I am seldom able to successfully initiate a patent and good-flowing IV line with them. Many times have I called for the assistance of my seniors and this is quite frustrating for me. It is already hard to keep their limbs steady and it is doubly hard for me to find them a good vein. Yes, it requires a lot of practice and experience, but i don't enjoy the idea of having to "practice" on little kids. Hope you could share some tips and strategies with me regarding this. Thanks a lot.
