Multiple venipunctures in hospitalized children result in physical and emotional distress. Recently, we have found that blood sampling via peripheral venous catheter used for fluid administration in children significantly reduces pain and, except for glucose, can replace venipuncture for determining complete blood count and basic chemistry analytics, including white and red blood cell counts, hemoglobin and hematocrit levels, mean corpuscular volume, mean corpuscular hemoglobin level, red blood cell distribution width, platelet count, mean platelet volume, and sodium, potassium, chloride, and urea levels (Berger-Achituv S, Budde-Schwartzman B. Ellis MH, Shenkman Z. Erez I. Blood Sampling through Peripheral Venous Catheters for Selected Basic Analytes in Children. Pediatrics. In press).
The goal of this study is to investigate whether blood sampling via peripheral venous catheter used for fluid administration can significantly reduces pain and replace venipuncture for determining complete blood count and basic chemistry analytics in infants under 2 years of age.

|Estimated Enrollment :||50 participants|
|Official Title:||Blood Sampling Through Peripheral Venous Catheter for Selected Basic Analytes in Infants|
|Study Start Date :||May 2010|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||June 2012|
Other: Blood sampling from peripheral venous catheter.
- To evaluate the interchangeability of peripheral venous catheter and venipuncture for complete blood count and basic chemistry indices. [ Time Frame: Primary assessment will be done after data analysis of the first 20 participants, estimated to take up to 3 months. ]Comparisons of complete blood count (including white and red blood cells, hemoglobin, hematocrit, mean corpuscular volume and hemoglobin, red cell distribution width, platelets, mean platelet volume) and basic chemistry indices (including sodium, potassium, glucose, chloride, urea) will be performed and hemolysis will be documented.
- Assessment of infant's mood during procedures. [ Time Frame: Primary assessment will be done after data analysis of the first 20 participants, estimated to take up to 3 months. ]The investigator will record infant's mood (calm, distressed/crying, crying vigorously) during blood sampling from peripheral venous catheter and direct venipuncture.
