Abstract

Inserting a fine needle presents a trade-off problem between safety and accuracy. As one of the serious complications due to tissue damages during needle insertion, severe bleeding often occurs owing to blood vessel puncture. However, there are few researches to evaluate the safety quantitatively regarding bleeding during the fine needle insertion. Therefore, the purpose of this study was the quantitative evaluation of the amount of bleeding due the artery and vein puncture depending on the needle size. We developed a blood circulation system for measuring the amount of bleeding due to blood vessel puncture. Using the system, the amount of bleeding due to different needle sizes was evaluated. The results suggested that the amount of bleeding per unit time increased depending on the needle radius. According to ordinal safety standards, the 22-gauge needle is appropriate for insertion into the lower abdomen.
