Just curious if anyone has heard of or used this method for difficult IV starts. We were told you wrap an acewrap down the arm, leave on for 2 minutes and start your iv. We have a CRNA that thinks we should be trying this. Just wondering if there are any articles or information regarding this method/procedure. Any info is appreciated!
