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



9/9/2011 7:47:28 AM

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.
