VetReaLifeSim Wearable Simulation Products

southside.jpg

VetReaLifeSim products are worn by real animals to provide safe repeated practice of hands-on IV and blood draw skills and human-animal interaction skills or as an "add-on" to manikins for enhanced function and extended sustainability. This training improves the clinical competency of people working with DVMs, freeing them up to see more patients resulting in improved patient care and improved bottom line of the clinic/hospital. Our product lines include task-trainers and simulated blood vessels (SBVs).  

IV TASK TRAINERS

VetReaLifeSim IV Task-trainers are wearable, affordable, durable, and safe. They are available in four sizes (large animal neck, medium animal neck, medium animal leg, small animal leg) and two versions (basic and advanced with the companion RLSimApp). 

Features

  • Life-life* skin with feel of "pop" through the skin and the second "pop" through the vessel followed by a realistic flashback. (*The skin feel is most similar to that of large animals.)
  • Loop and hook velcro straps for flexible fitting and positioning on the forearm. Velcro straps are used rather than a full sleeve to protect the wearers from potential exposures and cross-contamination.
  • Entire base of sleeve covered with protective puncture-proof material.
  • Soft, smooth, durable microfiber lining near the skin.
  • Advanced version with objective & subjective performance feedback quickly and easily accessible with the RLSimApp.  2 AA batteries required with App only - provide >200 hours of feedback and skills tracking (*2 AA batteries are not included.)

SIMULATED BLOOD VESSELS 

Simulated blood vessels (SBVs) are available in different lengths and diameters to provide a variety of placement and practice opportunities. The SBVs are currently available in three sizes (long, standard, and narrow) with flow-through vessels in field testing January/February 2018. 

SBVs are leak-resistant and if they are pre-filled, we use a standard non-hazardous re-hydrated simulated blood product. Sustainability varies based on size of vessels and needle placement and gauge of needles inserted. 

A simulated blood specimen is delivered (via flashback) only when the catheter is correctly inserted and the tourniquet is properly tightened over the proximal end of the vessel. Since the vessels may not be the full length of the sleeve, extra attention to proper tourniquet placement is important. Viewing a flashback for a correct needle insertion is not App dependent.
