Health conditions such as diabetes, high cholesterol, chronic kidney disease, and obesity all impact patients’ vessel health and complicate intravenous access. Fundamental medical care relies on intravenous access in the hospital setting and is the route for medication administration, diagnostic treatments, and other therapies” Girgenti and Pieroni (2018).
