Venous cannulation is used for intravenous administration of fluids, drugs, parenteral nutrition, or radio opaque contrast media; also to allow frequent or repeated blood sampling. This module teaches you how to safely prepare for and perform the insertion of an intravenous line for venous cannulation. Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator enables you to practice and test your ability to insert an intravenous line 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. This module is one of the foundation skills required for Year 1 post-graduate medical trainees and for specialist nurses.

  • to practice and perfect your skills in inserting an intravenous line in a forearm vein and flushing the cannnula
  • how to secure the cannula
  • correct post-procedure considerations
  • much more (see “content details” for more specific information)

No special hardware or other equipment is required, other than a computer mouse for use in the simulations. Each of the SIMTICS modules covers one specific procedure or topic in detail. Each module contains:

  • an online simulation (available in Learn and Test modes)
  • descriptive text, which explains exactly how to perform that particular procedure including
  • 2D images and a 3D model of applied anatomy for that particular topic
  • a step by step video demonstration by an expert
  • a quiz
  • a personal logbook that keeps track of all the modules the learner has studied and how long
