AccuVein AV300 Helps Healthcare Professionals Locate Hard-to-Find-Veins

Advances Quality of Patient Care in Venipuncture, Most Common Invasive Medical Procedure

COLD SPRING HARBOR, N.Y., May 18 /PRNewswire/ -- AccuVein LLC today announced the launch of AccuVein AV300, the world's first hand-held, non-contact vein illumination device that helps healthcare professionals locate hard-to-find veins. IV starts and blood draws (venipuncture) can be a source of patient anxiety and discomfort, and accessing veins in difficult patients can take up to 10 minutes and require multiple needle sticks. Venipuncture is the most common invasive medical procedure with an estimated 2.7 million procedures conducted every day in the United States alone. The AV300 can help reduce the need for multiple needle sticks, with the goal of improving patient care and the time to access veins.

"In some cases, establishing IV access may involve multiple attempts, which can increase the risk of IV site complications."

The AccuVein AV300 can help to advance patient care in a variety of settings by assisting healthcare professionals in locating the vein quickly for blood draws, intravenous lines and delivery of medications. Detecting and highlighting hemoglobin, the AV300 scans up to 8mm below the skin's surface to help locate peripheral veins normally used for venipuncture. The device projects a pattern of light on a patient's skin revealing vein position to he
