|Atlantic General’s vein mapping technology uses near-infrared light, a digital video camera and an image processing unit to build an image of a patient’s blood vessels. The device then projects that image onto the patient’s skin.
The VeinViewer provides a number of benefits, from easing the process during a pediatric blood draw to improving vascular access for a cancer patient. It can be used on any patient with difficult-to-find veins to reduce multiple attempts to insert an IV. It is also a crucial part of the vascular access services provided at Atlantic General and the institution-wide effort to preserve the peripheral veins of patients with kidney disease who may need them for vital hemodialysis treatment down the road.
The device can be used anywhere on the body, except the eyes. It is non-invasive and poses no risk because there is no radiation involved.
