      Demo Canada: http://www.carestreammedical.com/ USA/International: https://www.christiemed.com/ Vein Visualization Displays Veins Beneath the Surface Vein illumination with VeinViewer vein visualization technology can aid healthcare professionals in finding a good vein for venipuncture. Simply hold the device above the skin, and the vasculature is displayed on the surface of the skin. Easy to use, these vein finders may save valuable time for both nurses and patients. You’ll appreciate these features of vein illumination with VeinViewer's breakthrough device: Point and click – Simply aim the portable vein finder at an area of skin and click to locate the veins beneath the skin’s surface. Hands-free option – In situations that require hands-free use, the FLEX unit can attache to an IV pole or Table. Non-contact – Because the device has been designed not to come into contact with the patient, the device may not require sterilization between uses. Works in light or dark – The device effectively locates veins under light or dark lighting conditions. Rechargeable battery – The device doesn’t need to be plugged into an electrical outlet. Accuracy – Permanently aligned; center line accurate to less then the width of a human hair. Movement tolerant – Because the device shows the veins in real time, the device can accommodate patient movement, when operated properly, a critical feature for venous access procedures performed on children and restless or combative patients. Portable Vein Visualization Is Useful With a Variety of Patients Medical professionals know that venipuncture can be particularly challenging in some patients. Those with difficult venous access (DVA) can include: The elderly; Dark-skinned patients, whose veins may not be visible; Obese patients, whose veins may not be visible or palpable; Patients having many diagnostic or therapeutic intravenous procedures; Burn victims; Agitated or restless patients; Oncology patients on chemotherapy; Drug abusers. In fact, finding a suitable vein may pose a challenge on any patient. Clinicians who try vein illumination with VeinViewer’s breakthrough device will want to use it to assist with every venipuncture procedure, whether it is to draw blood or for an IV insertion procedure. There’s already enough stress on both ends of the needle without having trouble finding a vein. Why not help take the guesswork out of the process? The Cost of Failed Attempts Of all invasive medical procedures, venipuncture is the most common and these venipuncture attempts can fail. As a result: Intravenous therapy may not begin promptly; Physician intervention to access a difficult vein can erode productivity; Patients may endure unnecessary needlesticks and additional discomfort; Stress may increase for both patients and staff. Increased costs per procedure, (e.g., needles, catheters, gauze, etc.). It’s estimated that every attempt to insert a peripheral catheter can cost a facility about $32. Decreased staff productivity can occur because a missed vein requires the procedure to be repeated; productivity can be further impacted should the caregiver have to escalate the procedure to specialized staff. Higher costs may be incurred when alternative invasive procedures are required to gain venous access. The Good News With the use of the device, facilities may experience a higher first-attempt success rate, which could result in: Lower costs/procedure; Increased staff productivity; More timely treatment/diagnosis; A Must for Every Venous-Access Procedure The device is portable and lightweight. It’s as simple as pointing the device at an area of the skin and clicking to illuminate the veins beneath. And because it is non-contact, it can re-verify vein location after the site has been cleaned. The device runs on a rechargeable battery, so there’s no need to be near an electrical outlet. Because of these benefits and its ease of use, it’s not just good business sense to encourage use of vein illumination with VeinViewer's breakthrough device for every patient, it is good patient care. 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. The VeinViewer helps to perform blood draws by projecting a map of the peripheral veins on the skin. Remember, there is no substitute for a trained practitioner’s experience, but the VeinViewer can help simplify the task of locating the point of needle placement. The VeinViewer is so simple to use that it will become an indispensable tool, particularly for patients with difficult venous access (DVA). The simple instructions for utilizing the VeinViewer vein finder are detailed below.

                • Kids Poisoned by Parent’s Prescriptions

                  Here’s something we may all need to be more resolute about: keeping prescription meds away from curious kids. Accidental overdoses of some of the most frequently used medications are on the rise in young children. “Where I see a lot of those prescription overdoses happen is they are playing around in mom or grandma’s purse and get ahold of somebody’s thyroid medications,” says pediatrician Dr. Eric Jones, he is on medical staff of Lee Memorial Health System. It’s those seemingly innocuous drugs used to treat the thyroid, high cholesterol, diabetes and angina that are sending children to the emergency room. The risk was highest for kids five and younger, who might pick up a pill and try it. Making it important to keep tabs on your tablets. “If we’re putting it in different container for older people to be able to open it, it becomes a lot easier for your typical toddler and kid to get into.” Over a ten-year span the number of poisonings in young children went up by a third. It follows the rise in usage of prescription drugs which are up 10%. Toddlers have no intention of snitching drugs, but are likely to copy-cat behaviors they see. “The things kids want to get into are the things they see adults getting into. So you take your medicine everyday and they want to take their medicine everyday,” says Dr. Jones. The best example you can set for any children who might be watching- is to play it safe. And keep any and all medications secure.
