    Soon they'll have a vein viewing body sock, excellent for Halloween. Maybe one day they'll have a lymph node finder for tattoo shops so those don't get inked. But the really practical one will be the g-spot viewer for guys lacking in cocksmanship. It'll save on all that relentless poking.

    That reminds me of one time when I was at the blood bank. The guy next to me said, "I'll give you one try to find my vein.". Fortunately, the technician immediately found it. When I said that, she just laughed and said, "I could find yours in the dark.".

    Actually, it is exceedingly difficult to find some people's veins. However, it is usually easy to find veins on someone who is fit and not overweight.

    pazzy saidwell... bet that's bad news for all those death row inmates out there.


    Not necessarily. Veins can always be found by making many attempts.

    My veins have gotten more difficult to find in the last years. I'll get poked 3 times without success, and finally the technician will go into the back of my hand, which I hate.

    Something like this would be welcome.

    Phlebotomists wax orgasmic when they see my veins.

    Yes, the pros always make some comment about my veins. But... last year I let one of those volunteer guys try to take a sample for a Syphilis/HIV test. After three pokes, I told him to forget it. icon_mad.gif
    The next day, when I was working out and all "pumped" I noticed where the scars were. Not even close! So yeah, these things might be just the ticket for those sorts of semi-amateur phlebotomy situations.

    That is really cool and would come in pretty handy. I work with cancer patients and their veins are pretty bad due to chemo.

    Technology like this has existed for at least a decade. It still requires practice for the person doing venipuncture to hit the vein without letting it move, otherwise known as the vein 'rolling'. We had something like this at the hospital where I did clinicals this past semester, but I never saw it used by anyone.
