There are various medical situations in which it is very difficult to spot the vein on the arm where a needle is going to be inserted. If it isn’t done right, the purpose isn’t fulfilled and therefore, it has to be repeated which is irritating for the patient. Also, in emergency cases, it becomes very urgent to put the needle in the right place as time is precious. Therefore, researchers have just come up with this device that lights a part of your arm to illuminate the veins. Now the appropriate vein can be located and the needle inserted with ease.
The primary phenomenon behind Vain Viewer is InfraRed technology. Using the infrared rays, a depth of 10 to 15 mm is illuminated. The vascular system including the veins lights up since it is present only on the upper parts of the skin. The vein viewer can provide fine details and work really well on all skin shades.
The benefits of this useful device aren’t fully appreciated at this time since it will have a positive impact on both before and after the access of the vein itself. An appropriate visual help means that the right needle size and injection type can be used instead of relying on just instincts to do it. An additional function is that it shows a live feed of blood flowing. Therefore, it can be used to monitor it if the need arises due to an emergency. Once the IV tube is in place of a patient’s arms, the viewer can be used to find out whether the administered medicine is flowing into the blood correctly. Once the needle is in the arm, Vein Viewer can be actually used to find out if any case of hematoma is present or not. If it is present, remedial action can be taken almost immediately.
Seeing the uses of this device, it will soon be present in many hospitals and clinics throughout the world.
