Intravenous therapy

Intravenous therapy or IV therapy is the giving of liquid substances directly into a vein. It can be intermittent or continuous; continuous administration is called an intravenous drip. The word intravenous simply means "within a vein", but is most commonly used to refer to IV therapy. Therapies administered intravenously are often called specialty pharmaceuticals.

Compared with other routes of administration, the intravenous route is the fastest way to deliver fluids and medications throughout the body. Some medications, as well as blood transfusions and lethal injections, can only be given intravenously.

 

Product : Advanced Venipuncture and Injection Arm
Brand : Nasco
Model : LF01121U white / LF01126U black
Description : A revolutionary training arm that provides complete venous access for IV therapy and phlebotomy, plus sites for intramuscular and intradermal injections. An extensive 8-line vascular system allows students to practice venipuncture at all primary and secondary locations, including starting IVs and introducing IV catheters. The venous system simplifies set-up with only one external fluid bag supplying artificial blood to all veins simultaneously.
The dorsal surface of the hand includes injectable metacarpal, digital, and thumb veins. The antecubital fossa includes the median cephalic, median basilic, and median cubital veins. Venipuncture can also be performed along the basilic, cephalic, accessory cephalic, and median antebrachial veins. Intramuscular injections may be performed in the deltoid muscle and intradermal injection sites are located in the upper arm. Intramuscular injections into the deltoid muscle are enhanced by the soft, lifelike skin and by the natural bony landmarks in the region. Intradermal injections using distilled water will create characteristic skin welts at designated sites on the upper arm.

Product : Vascular Arm
Brand : Nasco
Model : SB24989U
Description : This life-size model provides a complete understanding of the circulatory system of the arm and hand. An excellent teaching aid for venipuncture training. Modeled in a semi-flexed position with the brachial, radial, and ulnar arteries and accompanying veins with their radicals shown. The complete circulatory system of the hand is shown on both palmar and dorsal surfaces. Comparative sizes of the various blood vessels are clearly indicated and facilitate the study of the blood circulation in the arm. Mounted on a stand with key card. 26" x 6-1/2" x 11".

 

Product : Adult Venipuncture and Injection Training Arm
Brand : Nasco
Model : LF00997U black / LF00698U white
Description : Simple and easy to use, Life/form® Venipuncture and Injection Training Arms are the ideal way to teach venipuncture and injection techniques including starting IVs and introducing Over the Needle IV catheters. These simulators end your problem of finding willing volunteers, and help avoid patient injury and liability while the students are learning new procedures. Realism begins with fine detail - right down to the fingerprints. But most important is the realistic feeling of puncture through the vinyl skin and latex veins. The skin actually rolls as you palpate the vein and the characteristic "pop" can be felt as the needle penetrates the vein. Veins are accessible at the antecubital fossa, along the forearm, and at the back of the hand, making it possible to practice venipuncture at any of the common sites. Practice of intramuscular injection is equally realistic. A foam pad simulates muscle tissue, and the boundaries are identified by natural bonelike landmarks.Includes a Life/form® Arm with black skin, blood donor set, infusion set, 3 cc syringe, 12 cc syringe, needle, 1 pint Life/form® Blood, teaching guide, and hard carrying case.

 

Product : Venipuncture and Injection Demonstration Arm
Brand : Nasco
Model : LF01131U white / LF01132U black
Description : An economical IV demonstration arm constructed of soft material with lifelike veins in the skin surface that are visible and palpable. No internal tubing exists, but the skin can be punctured repeatedly. No blood to set up, no mess to clean up, and no leaking. May be used in venipuncture practice when fluid return is not essential, and is suitable for allied IV demonstrations and practice (flexion, cleaning, taping). Intramuscular injections can be practiced in the deltoid region. The skin and underlying foam may be cut for suturing practice. This lightweight practice arm provides a more lifelike feel than heavier models on the market, and makes it easier to transport for demonstrations. Inexpensive enough so that each student can have their own arm. NOTE: We recommend that no fluids be injected into this arm.
