Venipuncture IV Training Course and Phlebotomy Practice Pad/Kit/Tool
What is Venipuncture?
In medicine, venipuncture, one of the most routinely performed invasive procedures, obtaining intravenous access, is performed for the following reasons or purposes.
1. Venous blood sampling(also called phlebotomy) for diagnostic purposes, monitoring levels of blood components, removing blood due to excess levels of iron or erythrocytes, or later uses, such as transfusion either in the donor or in another person.
2. Intravenous therapy, such as medications, nutrition, or chemotherapy.
As we see, venipuncture is the fore and essential step of blood sampling or intravenous therapeutic treatments. It is necessary to practice more for perfecting venipuncture techniques.
Where is venipuncture performed?
Blood is most commonly obtained from the superficial veins of the upper limb.
Minute quantities of blood may be taken by fingerstick, heels, scalp veins, or dorsal hand sampling. So generally, venipuncture is also performed on the peripheral venous system, mainly the median cubital vein, cephalic/basilic/median antebrachial veins, scalp veins, dorsal metacarpal veins, etc.
The procedure is performed by medical laboratory scientists, medical practitioners, paramedics, phlebotomists, dialysis technicians, dialysis technicians, residents, veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and other nursing staff, etc.
How to practice the venipuncture techniques more effectively?
Nowadays, there have been lots of venipuncture practice products on the market. Surely they support venipuncture practice. But whether they are the best for the practitioners, the following should be considered.
1. Whether the design is realistic and professional?
The blood vessels or veins' positioning of the simulator should be right, the flashback should have been well-tested, and the touch should be realistic and soft, which could help to build a good habit of venipuncture at the beginning of your career.
The venipuncture practice head, arm, and hand designed by Pro-Health Product Ltd. are worth attention.
2. Is the material durable and safe?
Hundreds of venipuncture training are inevitable. Therefore if the venipuncture practice hand or phlebotomy practice arm etc can withstand more practices, just like the real blood vessels, it would be better and affordable.
And another factor, safety should be on your mind. You must don't want to smell bad or get infected because of the practice venipuncture pad or kit.
No matter whether you want to buy it for your personal use, wholesale or customize it for business increases or brand promotion, it is not so easy to make such a decision. The above just make effort to help you make a wise choice.
