This patented IV trainer is so economical each individual can have their own for venipuncture practice-no more precious class time wasted waiting their turn! This IV trainer is easily attached to a person’s arm so the user can practice venipuncture techniques on a live subject, including the proper positioning on an actual human arm, without the risk associated with puncturing living tissue. In addition, the user can practice essential patient communication skills while working with the IV trainer. The trainer includes the three main veins used in phlebotomy-cephalic, basilica, 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.
