Hello, I’m Elizabeth Benson, co-inventor of the product you’ll be testing. My Team and I thank you for agreeing to participate in our FtSBV field-tests. 


This FtSBV, an advanced version simulated blood vessel (SBV), is the newest addition to a series of simulated blood vessels designed to be used in our ReaLifeSim and VetReaLifeSim products. Our first 3 versions of SBVs, available in a variety of lengths and diameters, are pre-filled with fluid simulating blood and are plugged at both ends, providing a standard volume. When the volume is depleted from insertion attempts, it can be refilled with a needle and syringe. Feedback from customers indicated there was an unmet need for a flow-through vessel. We created these FtSBVs, to meet that need. 

We are very excited to receive your feedback on how these products meet your training needs. Your results and feedback will go a long way toward improving this device, the others to follow and, we hope, the future of clinical education.

Again, thank you for agreeing to test our new FtSBVs.
