For a child, a trip to the hospital can be a frightening experience, andthe stress associated with undergoing a venous access procedure such as ablood draw or IV insertion often escalates their anxiety. Each year inhospitals in the United States, approximately 18 million venous accessprocedures are performed on children.
Pain associated with blood draws and IV insertions is one of the mostcommon anxiety-provoking hospital procedures in children and often sets thetone for the entire hospital visit. In fact, a study published in the journalPediatric Nursing shows that IV insertions and blood draws are the mostfrequently reported painful events in hospitalized children.
