Why and How to Start IVS on Fake Arm Instead of Hand?

Registered nurses (RN) must be able to perform a wide variety of nursing skills. Such as IV injection, blood drawing, indwelling foley catheter, PICC line care & changing, etc, and other advanced nursing skills. 

What is an IV and Why Do You Need it?

IV stands for intravenous which means "in the vein."

An IV is a thin bendable tube that slides into the veins. It can stay there for a while. It can be hooked up to tubing that carries fluid, medicine, or blood to your body.

17th century: 

The first attempts at IV therapy were in the 17th century, but poor results due to limited research in the medical field at that time caused the practice to be abandoned.

19th century:

In the 19th century, the practice was revisited during the cholera epidemic, where dehydration was a leading cause of death. There were some complications due to sterilization (which didn't really exist), but IV therapy was finally recognized as a means to provide hydration to critical patients.

20th century:

Fast forward to the 20th century, where the discovery of blood typing led to IV therapy as a viable treatment for wounded soldiers during WWI and WWII. Once plastic IV bags, plastic IV catheters, and modern infection control practices were developed in the late 20th century, IV therapy became standard in nursing training, and is now seen as a practical life-saving therapeutic treatment.

An IV can be applied for many medical purposes. For surgery, it is initially used for anesthesia. After the surgery, an IV may be used to give periodic doses of pain medication. Sometimes patients feel nauseous after surgery, so medication to help the uneasy feeling can be put through the IV line as well. Other times, an IV is simply used to make sure you are getting enough fluid and remain hydrated.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and widespread awareness of patient safety culture, observation-based training is being conducted instead of direct practice. As the expectations of obtaining high-quality nursing services are higher for patients who receive health care services, new nurses are also required to have excellent clinical competency. Simulation training is beneficial as it can generate situations similar to those observed in practical clinical settings, thus allowing nursing skills to be practiced without harming any patients.

Therefore, it is necessary to develop a virtual reality simulation fake arm as a teaching method to address the above-mentioned problems. IVS fake arm is a new modern safe simulation tool that provides users with an environment that is similar to reality, and IVS training is referred to as the method of teaching wherein students make decisions and practice their nursing skills in virtual-reality spaces based on actual nursing cases. The IVS fake arm training has the advantages of no space constraints, costs less than existing simulation training, and allows repetitive learning. Moreover, in addition to the students' learning outcomes and satisfaction, it positively influences knowledge, self-efficacy, communication skills, and clinical practice competencies through self-directed learning.

What is the IV injection arm made for?

The IV Training Arm Kit is designed to help learners practice and gain proficiency in essential nursing skills and procedures like vein puncture, IV administration, blood collection, infusion, and intravenous injection.
