Portable, Hands-Free, Vascular Imaging
Veinsite allows clinicians to detect difficult to see veins, valves, bifurcations, and possible hematoma on patient types ranging from neonates to elderly, darker skin, obese, as well as those with compromised vasculature.
Compared to projection based vein finders, the Veinsite displays the highest quality image and largest viewing area. The Veinsite uses near infrared light that can aid clinicians in reducing multiple IV sticks, unnecessary central lines/PICCs, hospital costs, and concurrently improve nurse efficiency and patient satisfaction scores.
Vascular Access Team and Anesthesia at CHEO are using Veinsite to assist with difficult IV starts of blood draws. Veinsite uses near infrared light that illuminates the veins under the skin and helps us differentiate a healthy vein from sclerotic or damaged one. It is very easy to use, leaving both hands free to do the procedure. This increases the success rate especially in pediatric population. It has improved patient satisfaction and has decreased the cost of supplies because it minimizes the number of IV attempts.Sandra Dragic, RN, CVAA & The Vascular Access Team, CHEO-Ontario, Canada
