Yes, of course. Normally all patients have difficult veins because you’ve been doing a special diet, you’re fasting at that time, you’re traveling. Many of the patients are dehydrated and adding to that, the anxiety, and nervousness about the surgery. Normally it’s hard to find veins in that type of patient. We have personnel who have a lot of expertise in getting an IV on difficult patients, so it’s no problem. We also have special vein finder equipment, and we do this all day, so it won’t be a problem getting your IV in.
My biggest concern is IV placement. Is there a specialist to help with that?
