The economical Life/form Portable IV Training Arm combines realism, fine detail, and lightweight convenience in a single trainer. This self-contained trainer is packaged in a plastic case that can be converted into a work station. Trainer includes everything you will need to begin training and practicing IV skills.
The Life/form Portable IV Training Arm Trainer is constructed of soft material with life-like veins in the skin surface that are visible and palpable. Veins are accessible at the antecubital fossa and along the forearm, making it possible to practice venipuncture at any of the common sites. When puncturing through the vinyl skin and veins, the skin will actually roll as you palpate the veins and the characteristic can be felt as the needle penetrates the vein.
This trainer is the ideal way to teach venipuncture techniques including starting IVs and introducing Over the Needle IV catheters, and a realistic flashback will be observed when the needle has been accurately inserted into the vein. This trainer is inexpensive enough so that each student can have their own arm to practice technique and skills required in their courses. Under normal use, hundreds of injections may be performed.
The skins and veins cannot be changed (trainer will eventually need to be replaced). Included with each trainer is two IV bags, packet of blood powder and spoon, plastic fluid supply stand, two pinch clamps, 3 cc syringe, 12 cc syringe, 12 gauge needle, a winged infusion set, and a plastic clamshell storage case.
