At the beginning of the Spring Festival in 2020, a sudden outbreak of COVID-19 is unexpected. In this battle, those medical staff wearing tight protective clothing rushed to the front line and built a great wall for our lives. However, that heavy protective suit and misty goggles brought great trouble to our nurses during the transfusion puncture.
On February 4th, CCTV News reported on the problem of "difficult to needle" for frontline nurses. On February 4th, the Chinese Nursing Association gave a "COVID-19 Patients-Medical Staff Intravenous Infusion Therapy Work Recommendation (First Edition)", "If puncturing is difficult, please do not blindly puncture, you can use vascular visualization technology (Such as infrared light and ultrasound) ".

Zhongshan University's first batch of VV-100 Vein Viewer brought to the Wuhan medical team showed their skills in actual work, helping nurses to greatly improve the success rate of puncture, reducing the workload of nurses, and reducing patient suffering. It was well received by the nurses.
Application of VV-100 Vein Viewer in Wuhan’s hospital
The vein viewer uses the principle of near-infrared light, and uses the deoxyhemoglobin in the vein and the absorption of near-infrared light by surrounding tissues. The information is photoelectrically converted and image processed, and the processed image is projected onto the skin in situ according to blood vessels.
This VV-100 vein viewer from ENMIND uses advanced software algorithms to ensure clear image quality. Each machine is precisely calibrated before leaving the factory to ensure that the output image is clear and accurate. Nursing staff who help protect our life and health during infusion therapy, make their due contribution to win the virus epidemic war.
