Description

Nurses were given practice exercises to complete before their Hands-On-Training session with the IV Team nurse.

Practice Exercises 1. Practice applying the tourniquet and palpating veins on several coworkers and patients. Repeated practice will make this skill automatic and help to sensitize your fingers. That way you can focus on cannulating with you do your Hands-on Training with the VAT nurse. 2. Practice immobilizing a hand vein as described in the article (#1 on page 42). Repeatedly practice on people until you can do it without thinking about it. When you do this, you will need to apply the tourniquet and palpate the vein. 3. Practice immobilizing a cephalic vein as described in the article (#2 on page 42). Repeatedly practice on different people until you can do it without thinking about it. When you do this, you will need to apply the tourniquet and palpate the vein. WHEN YOU OBSERVE the VAT nurse starting the three IVs, ask her to 4. assist you in examining the patient’s veins. Try to identify which veins are superficial and which are deep. Watch the videos about the two IV catheters 1. ProtectIV Plus 2. For the ProtectIV Plus: • Practice holding the angiocath as shown in the video, between the thumb and forefinger, so that you will be able to visualize blood flashback. • Practice inserting the cannula into the vein model at a 15 to 20 degree angle. Also practice withdrawing the stylet and using the tab to push the catheter forward. See what it feels like when the safety mechanism clicks and locks when you withdraw the stylet. Use another cannula and practice until you can withdraw the cannula and advance the catheter using the tab in one smooth motion. You will be far ahead if you feel comfortable doing this when you do your Specialized Training with the VAT nurse. (Note: you can use one cannula for several tries. Just don’t click to activate the safety mechanism.)
