Experimental: With ultrasound guidance
In this group of patients, ultrasound guidance will be used when drawing blood from the radial artery.
Procedure: Artery puncture with ultrasound guidance
Ultrasound device will be used to locate artery for puncture.
Active Comparator: Without ultrasound guidance
In this group of patients, no ultrasound guidance will be used when drawing blood from the radial artery.
Procedure: Artery puncture without ultrasound guidance
Blood drawn from radial artery according to conventional procedure, without ultrasound guidance.
- Is only one puncture attempt necessary to attain the radial artery? yes/no [ Time Frame: maximum two hours ]
- The number of puncture attempts required to attain the radial artery [ Time Frame: maximum two hous ]
- Visual Analog Scale score for pain felt by the patient (0.0 to 10.0) [ Time Frame: Maximum two hours ]
- Visual Analog Scale score for patient satisfaction (0.0 to 10.0) [ Time Frame: Maximum two hours ]
- Visual Analog Scale score for health professional satisfaction (0.0 to 10.) [ Time Frame: Maximum two hours ]
- Presence / absence of a hematoma at the site of puncture [ Time Frame: two hours ]
- Presence / absence of other complications [ Time Frame: Two hours ]
