What Is the I.V. Arm and Hand Trainer For?
The I.V. Arm and Hand Trainer is designed for educating students and for professional practising on carrying out venipuncture techniques, including starting IVs, introducing over the needle IV catheters and normal intravenous injection. It is particularly well suited to medical schools, universities and more, and wouldn’t also suit a doctor’s surgery, hospital or any other care facility.
Can I Use the I.V. Arm and Hand Trainer?
If you work or want to work in a medical environment, then we would recommend the I.V. Arm and Harm Trainer. It may be suitable in the following situations:
- Training students at medical school
- Training students at hospital
- Practising IV techniques
- Practising over the needle IV catheters
How Can the I.V. Arm and Hand Trainer Train Students?
You can train students easily with the I.V. Arm and Hand Trainer because it is lifelike, realistic and affordable. The I.V. Trainer can be used at the front of a class during a demonstration, or students can take individual trainers to practice and train on themselves. The realistic design of the I.V. Arm and Hand Trainer is perfect for training, as it offers enough realism that it is similar to a normal arm.
How Can the I.V. Arm and Hand Trainer Be Used for Practise?
You don’t have to be in education to use the I.V. Arm and Hand Trainer. By having one of these in your office at your GP, hospital or care facility, then you can quickly give yourself more practise at intravenous types of work any time you wish. This is ideal if you have been away from work for a while, or haven’t done this kind of work for a few months.
How Lifelike Is the I.V. Arm and Hand Trainer?
Veins in the Arm and Hand Trainer are incredibly realistic, with veins being accessible in the antecubital fossa, forearm, back of the hand and thumb veins, making the trainer ideal for any of these sights. When puncturing through the veins the skin will offer a realistic role, giving you the kind of challenge that you will be presented with in real medical practise. Finally, the veins themselves are designed to offer a characteristic “pop”, again adding to the realism of the trainer.
How Many Injections Can the I.V. Trainer Withstand?
You might be concerned with the level of longevity that the trainer can offer, especially as you don’t want to have to replace your trainer after just a few uses. Under normal use, hundreds of injections can be performed without the overall quality of the I.V. Trainer faltering. This is ideal for use in a medical education environment where you can expect that the trainer will undergo a lot of use.
