We supply sterile unexpired IV supplies, catheters, and fluids for insertion on a live model. However, we will practice on a simulation model first.
Midwives, please donate any expired IV supplies, to include medications. We can use these in the demonstration segment of our class, during the practice of mixing medications, and when inserting an IV on the artificial models. This is a great recycling effort and can help us reduce our cost.
Because we want to insure you get valuable time with hands on, supervised experience, we limit the class size, and you will be given handouts that can be valuable after leaving the class.
The cost of the class depends on travel expenses and the expenses for the venue.
