Christie Medical VeinViewer Flex Deployed at St. Louis Medical Professionals

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) February 17, 2014

St. Louis Medical Professionals is a full-service urgent care facility that focuses on providing patient-centered services. It comes as no surprise, then, that the facility focuses on a mission to utilize the most innovative technology and approaches available to provide local St. Louis residents with the best possible care. As part of this mission, St. Louis Medical Professionals has recently adopted the use of the VeinViewer Flex.

The VeinViewer device is a state-of-the art advancement that projects a visual roadmap to the patients vessels directly onto the surface of their skin. It uses harmless near-infrared light, digital video, an image processing unit, and other patented technologies, and enables medical practitioners to more accurately perform various procedures requiring needle sticks, including blood draws and IV care. Vein-viewer is non-invasive and poses no risk to patients.

VeinViewer has been clinically proven to reduce the number of needle sticks and time needed to start an IV by 50 percent. Additionally, the use of this device has been noted to improve peripheral vascular access, cost savings, and patient satisfaction, as well as care for patients with hard-to-find veins. Clinical studies of the device have found VeinViewer to improve vascular access for all different types of patients. Although venipuncture is performed frequently, it can be painful and anxiety-provoking for many patients, including both children and adults. With VeinViewer, however, many unsuccessful first attempts and patient concerns can be successfully eliminated.


By adopting the use of this innovative technology, St. Louis Medical Professionals has solidified its mission to remain on the leading edge of health care. Patients of St. Louis Medical Professionals can now rest a little easier knowing that the VeinViewer device significantly improves vascular access and that the urgent care facility is truly committed to improving patient care. More information about the facility and services can be found on St. Louis Medical Professionals website: http://www.slmp.org
