In 2011, CDF donated veinlites for pediatric use to hospitals throughout the Hudson Valley Region. Veinlites take the guesswork out of finding a child’s vein. When a child needs to have an intravenous line placed or blood taken, finding a vein can be difficult and painful. A device called Veinlite has been recently developed which solves this problem and makes accessing veins easier and more accurate. Veinlites are a fiber optic based transilluminator which allows medical professionals to see smaller-sized or darker skin veins with clarity.
