Nuclear Medicine Technology students practiced intravenous catheter placement and injection on dummy arms. The students are not only learning the proper placement of IV catheters, they also practice aseptic techniques which include hand washing, use of gloves, and disinfection of the IV site. While working with the dummy arms, the students practice introducing themselves to patients, and making sure they properly identify the patient by using two identifiers.
