Vein finders perform two functions that make them into useful clinical devices:
- Determine vein locations
- Visualize those locations on patient’s body in real-time
The AccuVein is a breakthrough vein finder that is easy to use and is quickly becoming an indispensable tool for all health care professionals who perform venipuncture procedures.
Small and portable, the AccuVein is a vein finder that allows you to quickly find a patient’s vein without undue hassle or trauma to the patient. This can be particularly helpful for those patients with difficult venous access (DVA). By simply holding the AccuVein about seven inches above the skin, the vasculature is clearly displayed on the surface of the skin. Vein visualization technology has finally provided a tool that can save valuable time for nurses and patients.
Soon to become one of those trusted devices found in every doctor’s office, the AccuVein has a variety of features you will appreciate:
- Point and click – By simply aiming the portable medical imaging device at an area of skin and clicking a button, you can locate the veins beneath the skin’s surface.
- Small size – Unlike other bulky medical imaging devices, the device weighs only 10 ounces and slips easily into the pocket of scrubs or uniforms when not in use.
- Hands-free options – The AccuVein can quickly attach to a chair or bedrail for hands-free use. There is also a hands-free accessory on wheels.
- Non-contact – This medical imaging device may not require sterilization between uses, as the device was designed not to come into contact with the patient.
- Rechargeable battery – Since the AccuVein vein finder has rechargeable batteries, it doesn’t need to be plugged into an electrical outlet.
- Real world ruggedness – This vein finder was specifically designed to take the wear and tear of hospital and field applications.
- Movement tolerant – As the AccuVein shows the veins in real time, this medical device can accommodate patient movement, when operated properly. This is a critical feature for venous access procedures performed on children and restless or combative patients.
