Vein illumination with AccuVein's breakthrough device helps ensure prompt venous access in platelet-rich plasma procedures
Help Improve Patient Outcomes
AccuVein can help in platelet-rich plasma (PRP) procedures to:
- Identify best access site
- See vein movement or rolling
- Visualize vein patency
- Reduce patient pain and stress
Whether is it a PRP procedure is being performed for an aesthetic procedure, sports medicine, or dentistry, AccuVein can help.
By using NIR vein visualization technology with AccuVein’s breakthrough device, many veins that might be otherwise undetectable without a vein locator can be located and mapped on the patient’s skin.
AccuVein's NIR Vein Visualization Technology
Features of AccuVein's game changing device:
Easy to learn and use
No pre-use calibration or adjustments are necessary—it can be used immediately.
In situations that require hands-free use, the device can be placed in a wheeled hands-free accessory or one that quickly attaches to a chair or bedrail.
Because the device shows the veins in real time, when operated properly, the device can accommodate patient movement.
No patient contact
Because the device has been designed to be non-contact, it may not have to be sterilized after every use.
Works in light or dark
Use the device in light or darkly lit environments.
The device doesn’t need to be plugged into an electrical outlet.
The device fits in your hand and weighs only 10 ounces.
In addition to the standard viewing option, the AccuVein has an inverse mode which can enhance the visibility of small veins.
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.
An Essential Tool
When you are performing PRP procedures AccuVein vein visualization can help you to assess or identify veins.
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.
