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 : Venipuncture Training Aids - Four-Vein Model
Brand : Nasco
Model : SB23527U
Description : These unique training aids permit the realistic practice of venipuncture techniques as well as being excellent models to practice the mechanics of "no stick" IV catheters. Both models display blue veins which are barely discernable through the semi-transparent, tissue-like material. When accessing, the skin rolls as you palpate the vein and a "pop" is felt as the needle enters the vein. The two-vein model has two different-sized veins positioned at the same depth. The four-vein model has three different-sized veins, at varying depths. Both models enable the user to increase the difficulty and thus improve skills. These lightweight, easily transportable, economical, and non-staining training models are an alternative to larger, heavier, and more expensive models.
