Blood draws difficult

02/05/2008

Question:

My son is in great need of some blood work. We have taken him to four different labs and the local hospital`s special IV team and none of them could get a draw. Do you have any suggestions to help with this?

Answer:

Would recommend having the RNs who work in IV therapy give the blood draws a try. Unfortunately this a very common problem with no good solutions other than patience and persistence. Good luck!
