Effect of Passive Leg Raise for Pediatric Peripheral IV Placement (NCT03029754)

The investigators wish to determine whether passive leg raise allows for easier peripheral vascular access in the pediatric population. The investigators hypothesize that pediatric anesthesiologists will have higher rates of successful intravenous catheterization in children where a passive leg raise is employed.
  • Procedure: Passive leg raise
    A baseline vein diameter will be obtained using ultrasound by the sub-investigator. Then a nurse will raise the child's legs using a bolster while a second measurement of the child's vein diameter is recorded by the sub-investigator. The anesthesiologist will then place the IV and rate the degree of difficulty encountered.
