Symptoms Of Collapsed Veins
No flow: I assume you mean a vein that recently had a needle or iv. Veins may collapse or blow when fluid goes through them or blood is drawn from them. Phlebitis, inflammation of the vein, or a lumpy spot called a thrombosis may result. Neither is serious. Both are treated with warm compress and advil or tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain. ...Read more
Pressure changes: Neck veins distend when we lie with our head lower than our heart or when we strain. With straining, the pressure within the chest increases and the blood flow through the neck veins decrease resulting in them enlarging. When straining is stopped, the pressure in the chest decreases and flow continues through the neck veins so they become less engorged. ...Read more
My veins are small. One time I was even turned away from giving blood bc they said my veins might "collapse". Should I be concerned?

Venospasm: Veins don't like to be irritated with things like needles. Usually, when someone is talking about a collapsed vein they mean that they have tried to draw blood or start an IV and the vein has gone into spasm as a result of the irritation. The result is that the needle either isn't able to go into the vein or else it goes in but there is no blood return. With time the vein will relax and reopen. ...Read more

My IV bag ran dry last night for 40 minutes it beeped it was empty. I ended up just walking out should I watch for warnin symptoms of air in veins?
Air in IV line: Not to worry. Small amount of air in IV line is not dangerous, even the whole tube filled with air would be insignificant as the blood would absorb the air as the venous blood is passively returned to the system. Air in arterial lines can be dangerous even in small amounts since I is under pressure and could cause an air embolus. ...Read more

Can mild pulonary vein reguritation without symptoms be treated with medicine rather than surgery.
Pulmonary vein: I assume you meant to type "pulmonary vein". If you have been diangosed with some mild regurgitation within the pulmonary veins and you have no symptoms, this would not require surgery. You would just want to have your cardiac function optimized with medication and your atrial fibrillation treated, but otherwise no other intervention or treament would be needed. Surgery is not indicated. ...Read more
