Definitely one for the tricky vein society; Dr Franklin Chiao talks us through his experience and research evaluating near-infrared devices for perpiheral venous cannulation. Dr Chiao explains the physics behind this new technology plus its potential uses and limitations. We run through the main findings from the scientific paper including the characterisation of patients with difficult venous access, and the potential cannulation advantage offered by the VueTek Veinsite.
