Drawing blood and inserting an intravenous catheter is a routine part of a healthcare professional’s working day, resulting in 30 million similar procedures per year in the UK. The difficulty of this procedure is increased if the patients veins are particularly narrow. Up to 30% of procedures result in first time failure, which leads to an estimated loss of £93 million per year.
The Vacuderm is a single use product that increases a healthcare professional’s accuracy and efficiency. By tightly strapping the Vacuderm to the patients arm and pumping the dome, it enhances the tourniquet effect which raises the patient’s vein towards the surface of the skin. This helps healthcare professionals to increase the success rate in first time venous access and helps improve patients’ comfort and well-being.
