Ever been frustrated looking for the vein or have to prick the patient multiple times to get to a vein?
The Illumivein - Vein finder will save you and your patient the agony. With the help of 9 red LED lights, this vein finder will help you highlight the hidden veins. The device works by illuminating subcutaneous tissue under the patient’s skin which creates a contrast with the veins.
Its LED lights does not radiate any heat making if comfortable on contact. While most transiluminators in the market can cost up a $200 Illumivein cost only a fraction of the price at $24.99.
How to Use:
A lower lit room will give you better results so draw the curtains or dim the lights. Press the button on the bottom of the vein finder to turn the Illumivein® on.
Gently place the light on the patients skin and move the device from side to side. Veins will show as a shadow, or dark line, that will appear in the peripheral of the red glow seen around the device. Note: The device must stay in contact with the skin while searching for a vein. Holding the light away from the skin will not show anything!
Once a vein (dark shadow/line) is found, reposition the Illumivein® around the area for the best visual of the vein. If the vein is more superficial to the surface, you may have to move the light source further away as it might be too bright and mask the vein. It is best to follow the path of the vein so that you have a full visual of its size and direction.
Note: It is best to find a vein that follows a straight path.
