MedEquip4Kids has funded another AccuVein AV400 device, this time for the children’s clinic at Royal Preston Hospital.

Blood tests and cannulation are common procedures for babies and children in hospital, but children’s veins are not always easy to locate.  The AccuVein AV400 device illuminates veins below the skin, making them easier to find and reducing stress and pain for the patient.

Pictured above are Nicola Entwistle (left) and Rudo Kupera (right) with the new equipment.

The  AccuVein devices we have supplied to hospitals so far are proving extremely popular and we will continue to provide them for children’s units over the coming year.

“The specialist treatment chairs are a new vital resource for the therapy team and nursing staff to be able to safely and comfortably sit extremely complex, dependant, critical care patients out of bed. The chairs allow us to begin the patient’s rehabilitation journey by providing appropriate postural support at the same time as pressure relief to allow the patient to build the muscle strength to hold themselves up against gravity. This allows them to begin to interact with their environment in a more normal way, enabling them to participate in meaningful activities such as meal times and activities of daily living.”
