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 person's 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 and patient interaction. 5 Year warranty. Trainer measures 6-3/4" x 3-1/4" x 1".The History of the Life/form Venatech IV Trainer - Ellen Chiofalo, the inventor of the Life/form Venatech IV Trainer, is a teacher at Keiser College in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, where medical assisting and other allied health vocations are taught. Ellen created the Venatech IV Trainer to provide her students with a more efficient and effective way to learn IV therapy skills. She was so impressed with her students' results that she patented her idea and looked for ways to make her trainer available to every student learning venipuncture skills. In addition to the diversity of the training device, the development of patient-interaction skills is the most noticeable benefit of using the Venatech IV trainer.

Q: Does this work with an ultrasound machine?
A: This IV trainer does not work with ultrasound. Instead, you will want to look for a "phantom" product, which indicates that the model or simulator can be used with an ultrasound or x-ray.
