At some time or another, all of us are going to have our veins poked so that a clinician can put something into, or take something out of, our circulatory systems.

For some people, this can be an agonizing process as poor vascular quality leads to clinicians poking and prodding the patient’s extremities to try and find an adequate vein.

This torture will soon be a thing of the past as Accuvein, LLC has launched the first handheld vein illumination device for healthcare workers.

In contrast to current large, table mounted, vein illumination technologies, the size and portableness of the Accuvein means that this device is just as much at home in an ambulance as it is in hospitals.

Having worked in the healthcare realm, this device is long overdue and will be welcomed by healthcare workers.
