Of the 28 hospitals that received Honor Roll status, 21 use Christie’s vein finder technology, VeinViewer® for peripheral IV procedures Pre-, During and Post vascular access.

“We are proud that VeinViewer is the vascular imaging device of choice by the top ranking hospitals in the country,” said Chris Schnee, general manager and vice president of Sales and Marketing at Christie Medical Holdings, Inc. “ VeinViewer technology, now six generations strong with the recent launch of VeinViewer Vision2, is backed by six peer reviewed papers and Christie’s five year commitment, Christie Assure.

VeinViewer is the first and only device on the market to use: harmless near-infrared light, DLP® technologies, exclusive technology such as Active Vascular Imaging Navigation (AVIN) which has been shown by clinical studies to increase both first stick success and patient satisfaction up to 100 percent while reducing medically unnecessary PICC lines by over 30 percent. VeinViewer’s TrueView imaging accuracy in projected vein-widths is three to ten times more accurate than the competition. With its Df2 (Digital full field) projection VeinViewer is able to provide a real-time, HD image of vasculature directly onto the surface of the skin.
