Lower Costs

“Since we got the AccuVein we haven’t been asked once to escalate the procedure to the vascular access specialty area.”

University Hospital Acute Care Lab – Technical Supervisor

“It saved us quite a few calls for PICC lines – I’d say 3 or 4 fewer PICC lines in a month which translates to roughly $500 saved in a month…plus patients prefer peripheral IVs to PICC lines.”

“The patient had been waiting for a PICC line. Using the AccuVein I got the IV the very first stick. I cancelled the order for the PICC line.”

ER Manager of a Florida Hospital

“The cost savings using the AccuVein far exceed the cost of IO Drill needles ($100.00 each). If a service were to use the AccuVein only once a week, there would be a three-fold cost savings over the use of the IO Drill, and the risk avoidance of severe infection is a significant benefit as well.”

Ease of Use

“Students get such confidence using the AccuVein. They say “I think that’s the vein” and then they use the device to verify that, yes, that’s the vein.”

Phlebotomy Training Center

“The AccuVein is user-friendly and easy to carry.”

Missouri Blood Center – Donor Services

ER Manager of a Florida Hospital

“I am sold, I love this thing. I think it is going to change the way we do venipunctures.”

Utah Hospital Nurse

“In my 29 years of service as a Paramedic, this is one of the few times that I have used a tool that improves patient outcomes, reduces the risk of infection, and provides cost savings. The AccuVein is a true lifesaver.”

Paramedic in Birmingham, AL

“It is a win-win for everybody!”

“Everybody loves it!”

Anesthesiology Department at a Research Hospital

“Where is it? – we need it!”

“Other departments are jealous that we have the AccuVein.”

Children’s Research Hospital – Anesthesia Department

“The patient was amazed and, quite frankly, so was I.”

Medical Director of Vein Clinic

Patient Praise

“I want to share with you my recent hospital experience with AccuVein Vein Finder. I was being prepped for surgery and the only fear I had was the process of inserting the IV needle into the back of my hand or in my forearm. I have a history of being a “tough stick”. I am told I have deep small veins that are hard to find. I am a healthy male, age 58 and like to consider myself a “tough guy” when it comes to pain. My prior experience with IV’s and blood draws, etc has been sheer torture! I beg and plead for the nurse or phlebotomist to “not guess” and just stick and probe me hoping to find a vein. This past experience was no different.

No less than 4 RN’s (yes, all RN’s) gathered around me and in a group effort tried to insert the IV catheter into the back of my right hand. The RN dug and probed with the needle until she gave up. This was absolute TORTURE! Another RN then tried to find a vein on my left hand, but decided against trying because she saw that I had hematoma’s from my last IV massacre. She then decided to look at the tender area of my forearm.

She was looking and palpating and then went for it and stuck me with no luck. She then began the, as I describe it, painful “probing and digging” with the needle. It was then that a vendor arrived in the OR prep room and offered to demo the AccuVein Vein Finder. It was a Godsend! He directed the device over my arm and we could actually see that the needle was sliding off the vein. With the guidance of the Vein Finder the RN was able to direct the needle directly into the vein successfully!

Thank you for helping me and I hope that the AccuVein VeinFinder can help other patients avoid a lot of pain and suffering.

I write this testimonial hoping that other care facilities consider acquiring the AccuVein Vein Finder.”

“My wife has been hospitalized several times and is a “horrible stick”. After being stuck several times (even with the ultrasound), they end up getting the Anesthesiologist or the Life Flight Medics to draw blood or start her IV. Today we had surgery and the nurse brought in the AccuVein to do the IV. The Nurse did a perfect stick right away. If I had the money, I would get one just for the times she comes in! I would recommend it be on every department of the hospital.”

Ryan J. | Salt Lake City, UT

“After years of being stuck, it has been horribly difficult to access my wife’s veins. It’s not uncommon for someone from the anesthesia department to have to come in to get an IV working for her. The RN brought in a new tool from AccuVein that made visually finding an IV-worthy vein incredibly easy. Thanks for investing in this technology.”
