ENA/Orlando – (September 25, 2015) – Christie® Medical Holdings, Inc., the global leader in vein finding technology, will exhibit the VeinViewer® Flex and VeinViewer® Vision2 at the Emergency Nurses Association(ENA) Annual Conference from September 28 to October 3 at the Orange County Convention Center in booth 751.
Quick assessment is critical in fast-paced emergency environments, and VeinViewer locates the optimal venipuncture site in starting an IV to avoid potential complications. “Emergency nurses see every type of patient and venous access can be unpredictable,” says George Pinho, president, Christie Medical Holdings. “Nurses can make a more informed decision when picking an access site with VeinViewer technology.”
VeinViewer projects harmless near-infrared light onto the skin which is then absorbed by blood, but reflected by surrounding tissue. VeinViewer captures that information, processing it through a computer to create and then project a full field digital image of the patient’s vein pattern. The HD (high definition) image is projected directly on the skin in real time.
VeinViewer’s TrueView accuracy helps clinicians find the optimal access point and vessel target, while the device’s patented real-time digital full field imaging allows medical staff to navigate curves in vessels, confirm patent IV, react and adjust the technique to help ensure successful catheter placement. In post-assessment procedures, clinicians can assess the patency of the vessel to help avoid complications. VeinViewer can help improve first stick success by up to 100 percent, reduce medically unnecessary PICC lines by over 30 percent and increase patient satisfaction.
