I have to interject here too. As an ER nurse I have to "stick" kids almost every time I go to work. I have been doing this for over 10 years and I have NEVER put an IV in a baby in less than 10 seconds. Last weekend I had to start an IV, draw, blood and insert a urinary cather into a "thrashing" 2 month old. If I had done that in just a few minutes I doubt I would have been being very careful!!! It usually takes more than 10 seconds to just find a decent vein.
As to anesthesia, my daughter has had it twice and she did thrash about and kick. This isn't that unusual.
