Brief Summary:
Clinical Trial to investigate whether the use of a novel device to be used in conjunction with ultrasound in pediatric vessel cannulations is superior to ultrasound-only pediatric vessel cannulations in terms of number of cannulation attempts.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Clinical Procedures Which Require Vessel Cannulations in Pediatric Patients Device: SCENERGY Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
Use of needle guidance plus ultrasound imaging for CVC placement in the pediatric high-risk population may facilitate the procedure with a single needle pass and decrease the incidence of adverse effects by minimizing additional needle passes. This study will compare the use of ultrasound-only guidance with the Clear Guide SCENERGY guidance in terms of successful first-attempt vessel cannulations such as internal jugular and fermoral artery access. The question is whether it is possible to make ultrasound-guided pediatric vascular access less technically challenging in order to improve adoption and utilization leading to decreased iatrogenic complications and improved patient safety.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 60 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Intervention Model Description: two-arm study, comparing ultrasound-only pediatric vessel cannulations versus SCENERGY-guided pediatric vessel cannulations
Masking: None (Open Label)
Masking Description: Because the SCENERGY is an attachment to the ultrasound probe, it cannot be masked.
Primary Purpose: Other

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Successful first-attempt vessel cannulation [ Time Frame: 1 hour ]
    Test if the vessel cannulation was successful with only 1 attempt --needle puncture--to reach the vessel

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Non-IR Personnel Successfully Cannulate Pediatric Patients [ Time Frame: 1 hour ]
    Test if non-specialists can learn to successfully cannulate pediatric patients with only 1 needle puncture.

  2. Point-of-Care Successful Cannulation [ Time Frame: 1 hour ]
    Test whether the SCENERGY makes possible successful pediatric vessel cannulations at patient's point of care location.
