New Device Makes Drawing Blood and Inserting IVs Less Traumatic for Patients of All Ages, Sinai Hospital Reveals

Sinai Hospital, Northwest Hospital and Levindale Hebrew Geriatric Center and Hospital, LifeBridge Health centers in Baltimore, Md., have begun using the AccuVein AV300, a revolutionary new device that makes drawing blood and inserting IVs a less painful experience for patients. The AccuVein AV300 is a small, lightweight, handheld device that "paints" veins in a high-visibility pattern using infrared light. The device is held seven inches above a patient's veins, and, when a button is pressed, the red light is projected over the area to conspicuously highlight veins below the skin's surface.
