For regular ole infusions, which vein/location do you prefer and why?
If you are asking which veins to look for I would suggest the radial vein, basilic, cephalic, ulnar.
On a personal note: This week I have really been into sticking shoulders for some reason. Out of the patient's way, doesn't inhibit movement, confused patients leave it alone, nice large virgin veins...many people forgot to look above the AC.
