Abstract

Intravenous (IV) catheterization is a basic need for medical treatment. Skilled trained medical practices such as doctor, nurse or even paramedic need to learn as this their basic knowledge. To perform this treatment, they need to locate veins they can get by visual or feel it with their fingers. This technique has its own downside as sometimes different patient have differ skin tone and deepness of their veins. Sometimes patients also get scars or even some of them have thick hair. To attempt venipuncture, sometimes they need to repeat it two or three times if it does not succeed. This is due to non-visibility to locate patient’s veins. This may result severe pain to the patient and leave a bigger impact to their health. These inaccurate catheter insertions need to be overcome with a device that can help medical practitioners to locate veins from patients easily and fast for venipuncture process. Today’s technology give human to look through human’s body but non of them have a capability to locate and display subcutaneous veins structure right in front of their eyes for a user to perform iv catheterization process. In this project, near infrared (NIR) imaging technique will be choose as it has several advantages in compared to the other technique
