Vein Visualization Aids Providers

​Vein visualization is a growing technology used to aid venipuncture and avoid complications. Two systems, the VeinViewer and VeinViewer Flex by Christie Medical and AccuVein AV400, project near-infared light on skin to see veins in real time.​The small VeinViewer model is a handheld vein illuminator, and the VeinViewer Flex is designed for durability. The illuminators use HD imaging and digital full field technology. The projected near-infrared light is absorbed by the blood and reflected by surrounding tissue. The information is captured, processed, and projected digitally in real time directly onto the surface of the skin, providing an image of the patient’s blood pattern.​The technology allows providers to see blood patterns up to 15mm deep and clinically relevant veins up to 10mm. Clinicians can see peripheral veins, bifurcations and valves, and assess the refill/flushing of veins in real time.The VeinViewer Flex comes with two S-mounts and two clamps so clinicians can mount the device to existing fixtures such as bed rails and IV poles. The VeinViewer Flex operates via AC power or battery, and comes with two rechargeable lithium ion batteries for up to four hours of continuous run time.
