Background: The AccuVein AV300 device helps in venepuncture and intravenous (IV) cannulation. It uses infrared light that can be absorbed by the blood hemoglobin so that veins location is clearly viewed on the skin's surface.
Objectives: To assess the effectiveness of the AV300 device over the standard technique in increasing the ﬁrst-time success rate (SR) for pediatric patients who needed IV cannulation.
Methods: This was a prospective cross study of patients aged 0-18 years scheduled for surgery or examination under anesthesia but without having an existing IV access and after providing consent form. Patients were randomized into two groups; cannulation with AV300 or standard insertion performed by experienced pediatric anesthesiologists and residents under training.

Experimental: Cannulation with AccuVein AV 300
The AccuVein AV300 device helps in venepuncture and intravenous (IV) cannulation. It uses infrared light that can be absorbed by the blood hemoglobin so that veins location is clearly viewed on the skin's surface.
Device: AccuVein AV 300
Assess the effectiveness of the AccuVein AV300 device over the standard technique in increasing the ﬁrst-time success rate (SR) for pediatric patients who needed IV cannulation
No Intervention: Standard insertion
Intravenous cannulation is an invasive procedure of inserting an intravenous catheter blindly through the skin, into the lumen of a peripheral vein.
- First Attempt Success Rates With the AccuVein 300 Device Versus Standard Method [ Time Frame: Beginning of venous Cannulation until end of Cannulation, average of 1 min ]
