The economical Life/form® Portable IV Arm and Hand Trainers combine realism, fine detail, and lightweight convenience in a single trainer. These self-contained trainers are packaged in a plastic case Which converts into a work station. These trainers include everything needed to begin training and practicing IV skills.
The Life/form® Portable IV Training Arm and Hand Trainers are fabricated from soft material with life-like veins in the skin surface that are visible and palpable. The veins are accessible at the antecubital fossa, along the forearm, the back of the hand, and thumb veins, 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 pop can be felt as the needle penetrates the vein.
These trainers are the ideal way to teach venipuncture techniques including starting IVs and introducing Over the Needle IV catheters. A realistic flashback will be observed when the needle has been accurately inserted into the vein. These trainers are inexpensive enough so that each student can have their own arm and hand to practice the techniques and skills required in their courses.
Under normal use, hundreds of injections may be performed. The skins and veins cannot be changed and the trainers will eventually need to be replaced. Included with each of the trainers are two IV bags, a packet of blood powder and a spoon, a 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. Five-year warranty.
