The VascularViewer™:

The VascularViewer uses near infrared light (nIR) to generate highly accurate, real time images of veins and more deeply located arteries. It is an easy to use device that can be configured into any number of positions to address the needs of different patients in multiple clinical environments.

Important features include:

  • Digital (solid state) device on a roll stand comprised of a nIR camera, computer and display screen with touchscreen controls
  • Safe: non invasive, plus nIR has no known harmful effect on humans
  • Separate arms for the camera and the display provide maximum flexibility in positioning the device
  • Hospital fluorescent lighting does not interfere with imaging
  • U.S. FDA 510(k) clearance and IEC-60601-1 Safety Certification secured
  • Manufactured in compliance with FDA GMP and ISO13485 requirements
  • Zoom lens allows imaging and magnification of very small veins
  • Image shows proximity of adjacent vessels to help prevent unintended punctures
  • Easily movable light source helps clinician determine best access site
  • Clinician sees catheter, skin surface and intended vessel on the screen display
  • Skin color has no effect on imaging
  • Bone, cartilage, tendon, adipose tissue and muscle are not visible
  • Bifurcations, venous valves and vasospasms are detectable
  • Drop down, on-screen keyboard for data entry.
  • Device is lightweight (32 lbs), easy to move and suitable for use in a wide array of clinical environments.

Various Additional Images of the VascularViewer™ in action.


Important Benefits Include:

  • Image shows proximity of adjacent vessels to help prevent unintended punctures
  • Arterial pulse can be detected
  • Infusates that infiltrate or extravasate can be detected as bright contrasts against surrounding vessels and tissue.
  • Catheter patency can be confirmed on-screen and in real-time
  • Real-time monitoring of IV sites is possible
  • Access sites and procedures can be photographed and video recorded for validated patient record purposes
  • USB for image and video transmission

System Components

The digital camera captures nIR transmitted through the patient skin forming a contrast image which is then displayed in real-time on the Control Monitor. The contrast image is generated because blood (hemoglobin) absorbs nIR while other tissues do not.

Control Monitor

The touch sensitive display presents the vascular image and various controls including one for the amount of nIR emitted from the DLS, and others for saving still images and video recording of live images. It also contains folders which can display the Instructions for Use in one folder and still images and video recordings in another.


 

The VascularViewer™’s: Disposable Light Source(DLS)

The single use Disposable Light Source (DLS) uses a nIR light emitting diode on a 3 foot long cable that plugs into the bottom of the Control Monitor to generate the the amount of nIR light needed for trans-illumination of the area being imaged. Generally, the clinician will survey the patient for the preferred vascular access site and position for the DLS. Once a site and position are selected, the DLS is attached to the patient via a gentle adhesive after removal of a release liner from the DLS. Attachment of the DLS to the patient provides hands-free use of the device during the access procedure.

  • The single-use design prevents the spread of disease between patients
  • Sterile and Non-Sterile DLSs are available for different uses Patient Procedure
  • Following the procedure the DLS is easily removed and disposed of properly
