AccuVein can help in vascular procedures to:
- Show veins to patients
- Locate feeder veins by watching fill
- Show foam sclerosant in real time
- Highlight veins during transdermal laser therapy
- Map veins for phlebectomy
- Visually confirm efficacy of procedure
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.
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 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.
