You're So "Vein"

The nurses in the audience should be interested in this nifty new tech:

It looks like a ghoulish Halloween trick. Yet the device, which projects a creepy green video image of a patientís veins onto their skin, is about to go on trial in a US hospital. The idea is that it will help staff to pinpoint a suitable vein for an injection or a drip.

Hey, anything that keeps me from getting stuck more than once. Although, if mom's experiences are any indication, I'm sure her "baby docs" would still manage to kill someone with this.

Probably... On me, finding a vein isn't the problem. Finding one that won't roll out of the way when they try to stick a needle in is the problem. I've got very defensive veins.

That is very cool.
I've always had good veins; they almost jump out on their own, but this is great news for the vast majority of the population.
