Vein of Contention is back! Part Two of our expert panel discussion, sponsored by The AVA Foundation, dives into more difficult topics with differing opinions. A rundown:
0:00-0:46 – A message from Episode 11 sponsor The AVA Foundation
0:57-5:09 – Ramzy Nasrallah and Eric Seger welcome you to Part Two of Vein of Contention, with a nod to those industry partners supporting The AVA Foundation's Lunch and Learn session at the 2019 AVA Scientific Meeting in Las Vegas
5:12-14:30 – Is there ever a place for IV insertion in an awkward location? (i.e., fingers, ankles, toes, breast)
14:30-15:56 – Another message from episode sponsor The AVA Foundation
15:57-42:36 – If a patient has achieved a certain number of PIV failures, at what point should we consider a different device? Clinical context would be important.
42:36-48:58 – A new metric: Number of devices/number of inpatient days
