Smart purchasing decisions are a critical part of the success of your vein practice. What if smarter purchasing could save you hundreds of dollars on each procedure?
Here are three tips that will dramatically reduce your costs and increase your bottom line, without spending additional time and energy.
Ensure to read and understand all indications, contraindications, instructions, and warnings contained within medical device labeling prior to using medical devices.
The first tip focuses in on your administration of anesthesia. There is an alternative method to administer tumescent anesthesia that allows you to minimize preparation time and reduce expense. Motorized pumps and spring-loaded syringes are unnecessary.
Vein360 tumescent anesthesia preparation:
- Start with one bag 500mL normal saline
- Add 15mL of 8.4% bicarb (note: this is not required but is more patient-friendly)
- Add one 50mL bottle of 1% Lidocaine
- In a sterile blue bowl, place:
120-160mL for GSVs, or
80-120mL for SSVs and Accessory Saphenous Veins
- Administer using a 60mL syringe and spinal needle. (You may want to draw up 40mL at a time, unless you have large hands.) Make sure you anesthetize the skin with a small amount of 1% lidocaine and a 30-gauge needle prior to inserting the spinal needle.
Using our Vein360 method will help you save on the costs of foot pumps, IV tubing, IV poles, and spring-loaded syringes. Also, after using this new method a few times, you will find that it’s less work, too.
