VEIN FINDER TECHNOLOGY
What Is Vein Finder Technology?
Vein Finder technology was created as an assistive tool to help healthcare professionals locate and assess appropriate veins for safe and efficient IV access and injection. This device utilized at our center is even powerful enough to help locate veins in patients with difficult venous access. This easy to use vein detection device has been shown to improve first stick success by 98%.
How Does Vein Finder Work?
Vein Finder technology uses Near-infrared (NIR) imaging for detecting veins. This proven method enables accurate visualization of the veins under the skin. Our vein detection device uses two lasers in tandem to provide real-time imaging of the subcutaneous vasculature up to 10mm deep. First, the hemoglobin in the blood absorbs the infrared light, so there is a reduced amount of light reflection from the veins. Then, a custom detection system uses this reflection change to determine vein location and pattern. It then digitally projects this pattern on the surface of the skin.
How Does Vein Finder Technology Help
In the past, doctors and nurses would use an approach based on visual indicators on the skin to guide them when searching for a vein for injection. If a patient had older or darker skin, finding a vein would often prove difficult, leading to multiple injection attempts. Aside from the discomfort of multiple injections, this could also lead to blood pooling within the skin and bruising, causing long-term discomfort. With Vein Finder technology, our staff is better able to locate your veins and administer the treatment you seek. This powerful device helps administer B Complex Injections with pinpoint accuracy.
What to Expect During Treatment
The time frame for finding veins with our device may vary depending on what your vein structure looks like, but veins will immediately be visible and finding an appropriate spot should only take a couple of minutes from start to finish. If necessary, the device can be used during the injection process to keep the darkened veins visible during insertion. This will ensure complete success and substantially minimize the risk of bruising and complication.
Results of Using Vein Finder for Injections
Once the Vein Finder’s light is turned off, your skin will go back to looking like it did before the process. There will be no trace of any scanner or lighted texture at all. Due to the device being light-based, you will not feel any pain during or after the process. Nothing will have happened to your blood cells that absorbed the light, and everything will continue as normal.
