Of all invasive medical procedures, venipuncture is the most common and these venipuncture attempts can fail. As a result:
But by using vein illumination 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.
Features of vein illumination with Medisource’s breakthrough device:
As you know venipuncture can be particularly challenging in patients that require infusion therapy. Those with difficult venous access (DVA) can include the elderly, dark-skinned and obese patients. In fact, finding a suitable vein may pose a challenge on any patient. Given this challenge we think you’ll find vein illumination with Medisource is a very useful tool in locating suitable veins. Once put into use, the benefits of the device will become so evident it will become part of the standard of care for all blood draws and IV starts.

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 to collect a blood sample or administer IV medications.
