Algorithm for difficult perip. IV access?

I had seen an ACLS-type algorithm that I believe was published in one of the British Medical Journals a couple of years back regarding the steps one should take as far as obtaining a peripheral site in a pt. with poor peripheral access. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find it when using the search function of Google, et al. Anyone know what I am talking about & either have a link or a copy of said algorithm? Thank you in advance.
