This patented IV trainer is so economical each student can have their own for venipuncture practice - no more precious class time wasted waiting for their turn! This IV trainer is easily attached to a persons arm so the student can practice venipuncture techniques on a live subject, including the proper positioning on an
actual human arm, without the risks associated with puncturing living tissue. The Venatech IV trainer is ideal for practicing starting IVs in a moving ambulance. The trainer includes the three main veins used in phlebotomy - cephalic, basilic and median cubital - all in correct anatomical position. An arterial vessel is present on the
trainer for arterial blood gas simulation and can also be used as a tool for showing how to correct the puncture through a vein into an artery. Besides performing actual IV practice, the trainer helps students learn essential patient communication skills such as explaining the procedure to the patient, asking them to close their fist, etc.
