Jogging it out

Came up with this idea when I was jogging the other day.

Having seen a patient lying on his death bed and suffering because his vein was so hard to discern that the nursing staff took hours to ferret out before they were able to apply dripping to him, I wonder if there’s any other ways to help the nurse.

Once bitten by mosquitoes when I was jogging, it struck me with curiousity of what enabled the little insect to make out our vein with ease and whether any genes within that governed this survival toolkit of mosquitoes. Isn’t it cool if we can adopt their inborn navigator for identifying the blood veins of patients some day?
