Vein illumination

VeinViewer is the only vein finder of its kind that can positively impact the entire Pre-, During and Post-access procedure  and is proven to reduce the number of stick attempts on patients and greatly increase patient satisfaction.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​VeinViewer does more than just locate veins.

Locating veins is only the first step to a successful venipuncture procedure. With HD imaging and Df2 (Digital Full Field) technology, VeinViewer® is the only vein finder that can help you improve the total patient experience by reducing the number of sticks, potentially improving intravenous catheter dwell times and avoiding associated complications. ​Use our ROI calculator​ to figure out the potential cost savings associated with V​einViewer technology.

VeinViewer has been proven to:

  • ​Increase first stick success by up to 100%
  • Decrease PICC lines placed due to difficult venous access ​by greater than 30%
  • Increase patient satisfaction by 100%

VeinViewer delivers valuable information for the entire vascular access procedure and should be used to help assess the patient Pre-, During- and Post-access. Everyone from the novice to the experienced clinician can benefit from VeinViewer.

Pre-access: The most obvious vein is not always the best option for access. VeinViewer provides clinicians with assessment information to make a more informed decision.

  • Locate veins that are clinically relevant to a peripheral procedure, up to 10mm deep for PIV and up to 15mm for blood pattern assessment.
  • Use the VeinViewer image with TrueView accuracy to make a more informed decision in catheter gauge selection.
  • Determine the location of valves and bifurcations and avoid these problematic structures.
  • Find the optimal access point and vessel target that is sufficient for the length of the catheter.
  • Assess blood refill rate with real-time visual feedback prior to IV placement and during review of the site.

During-access: Unpredictable factors can make advancing the catheter a challenge and could require you to start the procedure over . Real-time Df² imaging, exclusive to VeinViewer, allows you to immediately react and adjust your technique to help ensure a successful outcome.

  • Navigate curves in the vessel.
  • Visualize a rolling vein.
  • Confirm a patent IV by visualizing the flush of IV fluids to determine if the catheter is flowing properly.

Post-access: Assessing the patency of the vessel with VeinViewer after catheter placement can help avoid potential complications and improve the patient experience.

  • Detect a hematoma from an accidental puncture as it forms and potentially avoid an infiltration.
  • Confirming a successful peripheral IV placement may help avoid central lines such as PICC or CVC.

Pre and Post-Access Benefits

Venipuncture can be a challenging process for medical professionals especially when a patient’s veins are difficult to see.  VeinViewer uses near infrared light to create a digital image of patient vasculature in real time.
