A woman walks past. Her arms are covered in black & blue bruises and swollen veins. She is being abused. By her fellow classmates. Learning how to insert a catheter.
Gone are the days where paramedic students needed to practice venipuncture on each other. Gone are the days of amateurs sticking you with needles. This is all thanks to the injection training arm.
An injection training arm is easy to use. They are currently the ideal way to teach venipuncture and injection techniques without taking unnecessary risks or causing pain. Before the training arm, you had to find
victims willing volunteers. But now you can avoid patient injury and liability, while the students are learning new procedures (now willingly). The best part is that the arm feels real – right down the fingerprint! The skin actually rolls as you palpate the vein and the characteristic “pop” can be felt as the needle penetrates the vein. That way, you won’t need to sacrifice true “real life” experience for less injury. And all your students can breathe easier. Until the test.
