The simulation world grows immensely everyday in every direction. From SP's to lab equipment and scenarios, the possibilities are truly endless.
What if along comes a product that can throw a curve ball for a "typical clinical training scenario"?
ReaLifeSim IV trainers are the products that have been M.I.A.!
The amount of time that is put into the planning, scheduling, scripting and gathering of equipment and personnel to "act the parts" can be all for nothing if the scenario is executed well but lacks realism.
Having a manikin is not a bad thing, they really are helpful in tons of scenarios, but face it, you don't have very interesting conversations with them. The ReaLifeSim IV trainer simply attaches to the arm (whether human or manikin) and its versatility opens vast opportunities of scenarios where there is a real interaction with the patient and the health care provider.
Introducing a two way interaction provides that human communication that we are missing in so much of what we do. In addition to the communication, the student is learning critical IV training practices that gives them the much needed confidence when preforming on an actual patient.
EMS, Medics, Nurses, Fire & Rescue, Veterinarian, K9, TCCC, Telemedicine and so many more can benefit from using ReaLifeSim and VetReaLifeSim IV trainers in their scenarios. A little realism is not a bad thing and is one of those things that desperately needs to make a "come-back" in training scenarios today.
