  • 2. Proper site selection  Proper knowledge of gross anatomy of veins  Identification involves both visual and tactile exploration  The vein may be located as a blue green subcutaneous structure 
  • 3. Blind attempts are highly unlikely to be successful  Ideally a good sized vein with a straight segment atleast the length of the cannula should be selected 
