Why do you need to select a straight vein?
Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com consulting service
Installation of infusion is done with the aim to facilitate the provision of fluids and drugs in emergency conditions. Infusion is performed on veins. Actually, whether a blood vessel is straight or not is not a definite benchmark in infusion. That is because everyone has different blood vessel characteristics. The suggestion to choose a straight blood vessel is not an obligation that must be chosen, but the condition is done in order to facilitate the process of needle insertion and catheter infusion.
Skilled health workers are able to choose which venous area the catheter can pass through, without assessing whether a blood vessel is straight or not. As an example in the elderly or elderly, the majority is difficult to find straight blood vessels in the group. In addition, thin skin, a thin layer of fat and decreased skin elasticity become one of the challenges for health workers to install infusions in elderly people.
No less important and must be considered is the aseptic / asepsis before and after the infusion to prevent the entry of germs that cause infection through the infused area.
