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.”

Helping With Tough Sticks

“An obese black male needed an IV and had already been stuck 4 or 5 times. No one could find his vein. Using the AccuVein, I got an IV the very first stick. In fact that patient had been waiting for a PICC line; I cancelled the order!”

ER Manager of Florida Hospital

“We had a patient that was a difficult stick. The patient said, “I always have to be stuck 10 times to get an IV. Good luck.” The nurse brought the AccuVein in the room, used it to find a vein, and was able to establish IV access in one stick!”

Utah Hospital Nurse

“Our Chief Anesthesiologist had a chubby baby and had to stick her everywhere over 5 times. He called for the AccuVein and with the help of the device got it on the first stick. He was very impressed!”

“We are often dealing with new babies with no visible veins. You can’t see anything – it’s like going in there blind – it’s impossible! That’s when we look for the device…where is it, we need it!”

Children’s Research Hospital – Anesthesia Department

I used it yesterday to find a vein for PICC line insertion in a child with cancer and very poor peripheral venous access… ONE STICK!!! It’s fantastic.

Maryland Pediatric Critical Care Doctor

A 911 call was received by our dispatch that a 33-week pregnant patient had been involved in a severe fall. The patient needed to be extricated from the van and was in shock. Upon exam of this very obese black patient (300 plus pounds), no veins could be palpated; I employed the AccuVein and was able to start an IV on the first attempt.”

Saving Time

“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

“If I can spend 5 minutes putting in a line rather than 30 minutes you’ve improved my day.”

Anesthesiology Department at a Research Hospital

“The AccuVein has allowed us to reduce 2nd sticks by 50%!”

South Carolina Hospital Lab Manager

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

“We like it a lot because it doesn’t come into contact with the skin, it is easy to clean and easy to use!”

South Carolina Lab

“I don’t endorse many products but the AccuVein is easy to use and it works great.”

South Carolina Hospital Lab Manager

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

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