illumavein Blood Sampling Aid for Diabetic Cats and DogsRetrieving a blood sample for glucose monitoring hasn't been this easy before.The illumavein is a device used to help retrieve a blood sample for glucose monitoring of a diabetic feline or canine. A pressure activated light illuminates the vein to make it completely visible for puncturing. The pressure acts as a turnicate, which allows ample blood volume within the vein. The illumivein also prevents lancing through the ear and into the human's finger.Great for diabetic felines and canines who are newly diagnosed, on new medication, showing signs or symptoms of illness, exhibiting signs of hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia, and for regular maintenance.The illumavein StorySylvana Kotila had a strong belief that retrieving a blood sample from Bambino, her diabetic feline, had to be easier. There were too many punctures involved just to get a good sample of blood and she was tired of pricking her own finger too. After discovering there was no device available to help the diabetic feline and canine population with blood glucose monitoring, she took to the drawing board The illumavein was designed to illuminate the vein with a pressure activated light so detection would be easy; no more guessing where the blood supply is. The pressure acts as a turnicate allowing the vein to swell with blood, and the illumavein has an added protection against pricking one's own finger while trying to retrieve a blood sample.The illumavein is the only device available that aids in getting a blood sample for glucose monitoring of diabetic felines and canines.Patent Pending.
