PALTC Set to boost your IV Insertion Skills

appx4+RLS2.jpg

Like you, we're thankful for the development and reach of Telemedicine - assistance from a distance is a great option to have. Fewer high acuity patients are being transferred to the emergency room and local healthcare professionals are expected to provide care under the guidance of the telemedicine team.

We help nurses develop and maintain competence and confidence in essential IV skills with wearable ReaLifeSim IV trainers.  ReaLifeSim IV trainers were created by nurses - for nurses, to develop and maintain IV skills competency. They provide safe IV insertion skills practice on a live person while interacting with them as they would in a real-life situation.

Practicing with ReaLifeSim (for even just a few sticks) can help polish those skills and regain the confidence needed before going into the room with a client. ReaLifeSim trainers are durable, portable, and have an easy 5 minute setup, so they are being used on all shifts, any day, any time.

I'd love the opportunity to chat with you about our approach to clinical education. Here's my contact information.

Fall into Safe, Realistic IV Skills Practice

Members of EMS teams, whether EMTs at the basic, intermediate or advanced level and paramedics - all learn, enhance and maintain their skills and confidence through training and repeated practice. The more realistic the training, whether in terms of equipment, process, roles, team communication, scenario or environment, the better the experience and the more engrained the lessons learned. 

ReaLifeSim wearable, hybrid IV Trainer is designed to be worn by a live person, whether a fellow learner or standardized patient, to enhance the realism of this essential clinical intervention skill. It can also be used with a manikin.

The protective layer under the simulated skin ensures the "patients's" safety, while successful IV catheter insertions permit the learner to experience the "pop" of the catheter penetrating the skin and entering the vessel producing a blood flashback. This is done working on a live person, as it would be in real live, providing opportunities to interact with the patient and team. The added realism of ReaLifeSim trainers helps ensure skills and confidence are at the highest level when they are needed. 


When clinically challenging scenarios require IV realism, experts use ReaLifeSim.

Communication – Key to Holistic Approach in Healthcare Simulation

Some final thoughts as we wrap up an exciting Simulation in Healthcare Week 2018. We trust excitement was generated not only by what you saw others doing, but also by what you and your organization have accomplished, as well.  In the effort to keep moving forward we can, occasionally, lose sight of just how far we’ve come.

One of the healthcare buzzwords of the past, but always pertinent, is “holistic.” The holistic philosophy considers the mind, body, spirit and emotions of the individual. What the holistic approach has taught us is fixing the broken part is not enough. Delivering quality healthcare must address the mind, spirit and emotions, as well.

As members of the simulation community, we are proud of our collective efforts in advancing the effectiveness, efficiency and safety of healthcare delivery. Through the expanding use of standardized patients, interprofessional training scenarios and the burgeoning application of virtual and augmented reality platforms, simulation in healthcare is continually widening its holistic approach.

At ReaLifeSim and VetReaLifeSim, makers of wearable IV and blood draw trainers, for human and veterinary medicine, we believe the “train the way you treat” philosophy, underscores the holistic approach consistent with the many efforts highlighted this week. We salute you all.


Healthcare Simulation Week Kicks off TODAY!

Today is the beginning of Healthcare Simulation Week 2018. This week celebrates all those who design, build, test, sell and use the ever-widening variety of simulation products to educate, train, practice and ultimately deliver safe, high quality healthcare with competence, confidence, efficiency and effectiveness to those who need it.

While simulation is a “hot topic” in healthcare today, it has been around in some form for many years, even with such rudimentary efforts as practicing injections using an orange or a semi-rigid block of material that mimicked skin density.

Today, the confluence of advances in materials science, miniature wireless electronics, robotics, computer-driven software programs, virtual and augmented reality devices have produced an incredible array of hardware and software products bringing clinical students and practitioners alike very life-like experiences in their training scenarios.

The end goal of all this effort - improved patient outcomes – is very much worth celebrating. ReaLifeSim, LLC salutes the Society for Simulation in Healthcare and all those working in the healthcare simulation field.

North Florida companies reap benefits of trade mission to Costa Rica

Two North Florida tech companies are already seeing results from a trade mission to Costa Rica conducted Feb. 26 to Mar. 1.

Jacksonville-based B&G Educational Innovations LLC, a manufacturer of medical and veterinary training devices, and Gainesville-based GreenTechnologies LLC, a manufacturer of slow-release fertilizer, were among more than 20 Florida businesses who took part in the four-day trade mission to Costa Rica.

BGEI CEO Elizabeth Benson said the trade mission, put on by Enterprise Florida Inc. and the U.S. Commercial Service, was seamless.

"There was no downtime," said Benson, whose company was a 2016 One Spark award winner. "They had us set up morning to evening with people who wanted to do business with us."

Benson is already negotiating contracts with three groups in Costa Rica, she said, and a medical school told her that BGEI products are already on its budget for next year.

Doing business during the mission was simple, Benson said. She had bios of everyone she met before she met them, had the help of an interpreter and was supported financially by a grant.

"It was like a well-oiled machine," she said.

Benson is looking to ramp up her company's manufacturing in Melbourne, find an international distributor and hire more in Jacksonville to help with order fulfillment. She is already looking for opportunities to go on other trade missions and has received invitations for trips to Brazil and South Africa.

Marla Buchanan, COO of GreenTechnologies, also had a successful trip.

"The trade mission will result in additional export sales for GreenTechnologies, not only in Costa Rica, but Honduras and other Latin American countries as well,” Buchanan said in a statement.
