Yes, of course. Normally, all patients have difficult veins because they’ve been doing a special diet; you’re fasting at that time and traveling. Many of the patients are dehydrated, and the anxiety and nervousness about the surgery add to that. Normally it’s hard to find veins in that type of patient. We have personnel with 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 that getting your IV in won’t be a problem.
