Peripheral intravenous cannulation is basic skilled procedure which has been performed by nurses . But this is challenging task while dealing with difficult venous access (DIVA) patients. Vein finder is innovative approach to locate veins during cannulation which ease problems arising during venous access for cannulation. Objectives The main objectives of study was to access effect of vein visualization device on selected parameters include time required to visualize vein, number of attempt and intensity of pain also study was conducted with purpose of find out association of selected demographic variables with selected parameters. Method The pilot study was conducted on 30 samples, in 2020 ,Chandrapur Maharashtra. Samples were randomly assigned to experimental group (N-15) and control group (N=15). Peripheral intravenous cannulation performed in experimental group by using vein visualization device based on transillumination technology and control group exposed to standard method. Result Vein visualization device contributed to reduce time to locate veins that mean score found to be 3.53 for experimental group which get reduced in control group to 3.1 (mean variance =0.43). first attempt success rate of experimental group was 93.33% and of control group was 66.66%,. Intensity of pain got reduced in experimental group (mild pain :53.33%, moderate 46.66%) than control group (mild: 40%, moderate : 33.33%, severe: 13.33%, worst : 33.33%). Association of skin characteristics found with time required to visualize vein, number of attempts and intensity of pain. also there were association between BMI and time required to visualization of vein. Conclusion Vein visualization device found to be effective to locate veins, reduce number of attempts and intensity of pain
