Dramatic new training aids are coming to the market every day to help demonstrate and simulate situations that our future medical responders need to practice. There's no doubt that the Nasco Lifeform Infant Intraosseous Infusion Simulator is doing just that.
With such a difficult procedure, a proper way to train was needed and it had been difficult to simulate in the past! Trainers and educators used to resort to using unsanitary chicken and turkey bones as teaching aids. But not anymore. The Intraosseous Infusion Simulator allows students to learn and practice I/O infusion with accuracy and realism, and also the more sanity and realistic alternative.
The simulator is cost effective and has inexpensive multi-use replacement "bones" and skins, which makes this a product you can train with for years. A 15-gauge needle is used during simulation, and each bone has 4 sides which all can be punctured several times.
