Why do veins blow when cannulating?

Asked by Grey Montgomery

Some veins are a bit thicker and tougher than others. As the healthcare provider attempts to insert the needle, this type of vein can bounce, or roll away. The needle might puncture the vein, but not get all the way in before the vein rolls, causing the vein to blow.
