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 specifcally relevant to one of four disciplines: nurses, doctors, EMTs and military care providers.
Over forty unique patient models span human anatomy and physiology. The Virtual I.V. Self-Directed Learning System records and evaluates students' performance and presents a thorough debriefing following each case. The debriefing gives students both positive reinforcement, as well as clear instruction that can be used to improve their abilities and their training.
