Vein Viewing System

In use in over 2000 hospitals, the AccuVein AV300 is a revolutionary tool for helping to locate veins for medical procedures. It is portable and lightweight, weighing only 10 ounces (280g).

It is as simple to use as pointing the device at an area of the skin and clicking to display the peripheral veins beneath.

Since the device has been designed to be non-contact, no sterilization between uses may be needed. It runs on a rechargeable battery, so it doesn’t need to be plugged in to an electrical outlet.

The AccuVein AV300 is useful for a variety of patients in many settings and serves to supplement existing venipuncture techniques.

Benefits:

For Nurses…
Of all invasive medical procedures, venipuncture is the most common and these venipuncture attempts can fail. As you know, when drawing blood or performing an IV insertion procedure on a patient whose veins are difficult to access, the potential for multiple needle sticks goes up and the time available to care for other patients goes down.

For Physicians…
Whether drawing blood specimens or starting IVs, venipuncture is the most commonly performed invasive medical procedure. It is also one that frequently requires additional time and multiple attempts to be successful. In fact, establishing IV access in difficult patients can take up to 10 minutes.

For Administrators…
Whether drawing blood specimens or starting IVs, venipuncture is the most commonly performed invasive medical procedure. And it is one that frequently requires multiple attempts to be successful, so it is no wonder patients can become needle phobic.

For Patients…
Are you worried about venipuncture complications?
Picture this: You go to your physician for a routine checkup. Lab work is ordered. When the nurse tries to insert the needle into your vein, she misses. You have to be stuck again, maybe more than once. Something you thought would be over quickly takes multiple attempts and inflicts more pain than you bargained for.

For Phlebotomists…
Venipuncture is the most common invasive medical procedure, but even in the skillful hands of a phlebotomist, it can be a challenge. The AccuVein AV300 is a breakthrough device that can help locate the patient’s peripheral veins easily and quickly by displaying the position of the veins on the patient’s skin.

For Emergency Medical Services…
Emergency physicians can treat patients more quickly if they arrive in the Emergency Department with an IV already in place. But in the back of a speeding ambulance, inserting a needle into a vein isn’t always easy. Wouldn’t it be nice if someone invented a medical device that assisted in pinpointing the location of veins beneath the skin? Someone has; it’s the AccuVein AV300.

For Educators…
Finding a vein can challenge even the most seasoned healthcare professional; for those learning phlebotomy or IV insertions skills, learning how to find a vein can seem impossible.
