MEMPHIS, Tenn., May 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Christie Medical Holdings, a leader in vein-finding technology, will be exhibiting its VeinViewer® technology at the Ambulatory Surgery Center Association's (ASCA) annual meeting, taking place at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Conference Center from May 19-22, 2016.
VeinViewer can help ambulatory surgery centers provide a positive patient experience associated with starting an IV by reducing the number of stick attempts and the time required, thereby decreasing pain and anxiety for the patient. VeinViewer is the only NIR vein illuminator rated for use in multiple environments including hospitals, outpatient care facilities, homes and schools.
"Christie VeinViewer technology allows ambulatory surgery centers to provide a high level of care to their patients," says George Pinho, president, Christie Medical Holdings, Inc. "VeinViewer is the only device of its kind clinically proven to increase patient satisfaction and quality of care through improved peripheral IV insertion."
VeinViewer uses harmless near-infrared light (NIR) to detect a patient's vasculature and then projects a real-time, high definition image of the vein pattern directly on the skin surface so clinicians can quickly assess options for accessing a patient's veins. In post-assessment procedures, clinicians can assess the patency of the vessel to help avoid potential complications.
