This module teaches you how to safely prepare for and perform the insertion of a venous cannula. Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator enables you to practice and tests your ability to insert a venous cannula in a forearm vein, with cross-sectional animations to enable understanding. Practice the steps of the procedure online as often as you want, until you feel confident.
