The FDA has just given their collective nod of approval for the EZ Vein, which is a spanking new device that was specially developed by an Oklahoma doctor in order to make it a whole lot easier for the placement of intravenous catheters in challenging patients. It is very much similar to that of a blood pressure cuff when you first take a look at it, where the device will be inflated thanks to a hand pump and vasculature that is located within the window opening. Dr. Robert Perry, a resident at Oklahoma University Medical Center, is the brains behind the EZ Vein, and hopefully with devices such as these, life will be far less painful and more convenient for the patient. What do you think about advances in modern medical technology – is the painless experience right at the top of your list, or are you willing to go through some pain to recover faster than ever before?
