Each year, three billion venipunctures take place in healthcare settings. Each one poses numerous risks to the patient and difficulties for the practitioner. IV starts can be difficult for all patients but especially challenging for women, children, the elderly, individuals of dark skinned origin and the obese. The most challenging circumstances are around life or death medical situations with the very ill and dehydrated patient.
Evena Medical brings an easy-to-use vein detecting device with access and IV patency visualization to the medical practitioner via a patented, hands-free informatics and documentation system. It is a complete risk mitigation solution providing a ‘Second Brain’ at the bedside to reduce medication errors and improve efficacy.
