Infant Virtual IV

The Virtual I.V. is a comprehensive and fully interactive self-directed learning system for training intravenous catheterization. Powerful 3D graphics provide visual realism, while a state-of-the-art force feedback device accurately simulates the sense of touch for a truly immersive experience. Virtual patients respond with bleeding, bruising, swelling, as well as other patho-physiological reactions. Over a dozen pieces of virtual equipment can be used to perform the medical procedure.

The Virtual I.V. Self-Directed Learning System provides unprecedented depth with over 150 distinct case scenarios. Each is customized to be specifically relevant to one of three disciplines: nurses, doctors and EMTs.

More than 40 unique patient models span human anatomy and physiology. The Virtual I.V. Self-Directed Learning System records and evaluates learners' performance and presents a thorough debriefing following each case. The debriefing gives learners both positive reinforcement, as well as clear instruction that can be used to improve their abilities and their training.

The Infant Virtual I.V. is a comprehensive self-directed learning system for training peripheral venous cannulation in infants ranging from prematurity to 15 months.

The simulator enables the novice student and advanced practitioner to independently master the uniquely challenging psychomotor and cognitive skills required to competently perform intravenous catheterization in infants.

Infant Virtual I.V. presents a clinically accurate state-of-the-art simulation, enabling novices to learn and practice without risk to infant patients. Realistic 3D visual and haptic effects allow learners to see and feel the patient they are treating, creating an immersive environment that optimizes the learning process.
