Veinsite for HDU

Veinsites for HDU

One of the tricky procedures for doctors and nurses treating children to carry out is inserting a canula into a child’s vein quickly and accurately. It can be painful for the child, causing distress and difficulty in completing the treatment.

But we are helping by funding a new Veinsite for the High Dependency Unit in the Alex. These are a specialist pieces of equipment that provide accurate vein visualisation by displaying high quality images of areas of the body, using infrared light.

The clinician wears the device across their eyes, making it a portable and hands-free, and can pinpoint optimal areas on the body for vein access. This means less stress and discomfort for young patients, providing a better hospital experience all round.
