Methods The research has been designed as an experimental study including pre-and post-test and control groups. Data were collected with personal information form, facial expressions rating scale, state anxiety scale, vein viewing device and a peripheral cannula. Both groups were applied to the state anxiety scale before and after the procedure while the facial expressions rating scale was applied during the procedure. Results Statistically significant difference was found between experimental and control groups regarding processing time, number of transaction attempts and facial expressions rating scale score averages. While there was no difference regarding the state anxiety scales average points of children in experimental and control groups before the procedure, a statistically significant difference was found in an advanced level regarding post-processing state anxiety levels. Conclusions Usage of vein viewing device during peripheral cannula intervention reduces children's pain and anxiety levels and shortens the durations of the initiative.
