Airglove, air warming system for difficult intravenous access (DIVA) is currently in use in over 100 NHS trusts in many areas such as oncology, haematology, infusion, apheresis, radiology, PET scan, nuclear medicine and blood donation services.

Over the past few years Airglove has received many lovely testimonials from patients and clinicians.

“Our Airgloves have been well and truly used, especially during our cold snap. We have found this a very useful device and we have recommended to other departments who may benefit from this” Elaine Renwick, Technical Service Manager, West of Scotland PET CentreGartnavel Hospital, Glasgow

“Airglove has helped out with some really difficult cases where we would sometimes have to move to central lines” Nurse/Practitioner at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge 

“The Airglove has proven to be a valuable addition to enable us to cannulate patients who have challenging venous access. The patients tolerate it well and it avoids the risks of previous attempts to improve visibility of veins through the use of warm water. It is convenient and easy to use” Gerry O’Hare, Oncology Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS), Vale of Leven District General Hospital
