The Advanced Venipuncture Training Aid - 1366 featuring four barely discernible blue veins in 3 different sizes - with the fourth vein deeply placed in a semi-transparent, tissue-like material. A "pop" is felt as the needle enters the vein, followed by a realistic "flashback" of simulated blood, confirming the proper needle placement. The model permits the injection of fluids and withdrawal of blood. This model is now made with two of VATA's newly developed materials, Dermalike and Dermalike V. Dermalike offers many unique and improved properties - 50% less needle drag when accessing the underlying veins, improved tear resistance to allow twice as many "sticks", no "oily/sticky" surface, no baby powder needed and it is stain resistant. The blue veins are made of Dermalike V, a material with properties more similar to real veins, as you do not use excessive force to access the veins compared to the latex tubing still being used by other manufacturers.
Your patients don't have one size of veins, so why teach and learn on a "one size vein fits all" IV arm? This model allows you to improve competency and technique by progressing from easier, larger veins to the more difficult, smaller and deeper veins. Many clinicians have commented, when using various IV training models, "I wish all our patients had veins as easy to access as these are". This model was specifically changed to make accessing more challenging, as this is how technique is improved and skills increased.
Below, are the actual sizes of the internal diameter of the veins on this model. Many hospitals and home health agencies use this model to ensure that the competency of all staff is assessed, maintained, demonstrated and improved continually. An optional carrying case is available. This easy to set-up, easy to store, lightweight, compact, non-staining and cost-effective training model is a new alternative to bulky, heavier and more expensive models.
