Veins in children and babies are not easily visible to the naked eye when performing invasive procedures such as inserting cannulas or taking blood samples.  The AccuVein AV500 is a handheld medical device that illuminates veins below the skin allowing the clinician to see and access the veins more easily. The vein finder improves patient experience by aiding the assessment of the vein site leading to more successful outcomes of first attempts.

The Tree House Paediatric Unit at Stepping Hill Hospital has two treatment rooms in constant use by both inpatients and those on the assessment unit. Each treatment room requires a new vein viewer due to decommissioning of a previous unit. The old model was in frequent use by the medical team but is now beyond repair. The AccuVein AV500 units will be used to treat approximately 1,800 patients per year. These babies and children have a variety of medical conditions and the availability of the vein viewer will make a huge difference to their hospital experience.

“The contribution of two Acheeva work stations has enhanced what we can offer to many children and students. Two young men are now able to access the larger workstations and their care and quality of life has improved dramatically. Michael now has the extra-large learning station available every day. Please thank everyone on our behalf who raised the money.”
