An Essential Tool
When you are performing vascular procedures the AccuVein can help assess or identify veins and map veins while accessing for removal. Imagine how much more effective you would be with a map of the vasculature highlighted on the surface of the skin. More effective procedures with less patient discomfort result in higher patient satisfaction making it clear why so many facilities have chosen to incorporate AccuVein into their standard of care.

How Does It Work?
Hemoglobin in the blood absorbs infrared light. When the device is held above the skin, veins appear noticeably different than the surrounding tissue. The vasculature shows up clearly on the skin’s surface, aiding in vein location for access and avoidance.
