Tips for arterial sticks?

  1. 0 Anyone have any tips for arterial sticks/a-line insertion? I have attempted a few now and let's just say...well I have not been very successful! Don't know what the issue is, even when I'm palpating a great radial pulse I can't seem to get the needle in the right place. Obviously I'm doing something wrong but even the CRNAs who've watched me do this haven't had much feedback/advice for me. Any feedback is welcomed! Thanks!
