Teaching best practices in medication administration is a large focus for healthcare educators as well as facilities when it comes to implementing continuing education courses. With this vital nursing skill in mind, DiaMedical provides both healthcare education programs and hospital systems with a wide range of training supplies designed to help students and nursing staff master the medication administration process from start to finish. Keep reading to learn more about our training supplies and how they provide a safe and effective way to master this crucial skill. 

Injection Trainers, Safety Needles & Syringes and More  

DiaMedical’s Demo Dose® Inject-Ed Injection Trainers are created to help students learn how to safely and effectively use needles to inject medication. This trainer allows injection and draining, and can be used repeatedly. Suited for intramuscular (IM), subcutaneous (SQ), intradermal (ID) and z-track simulation, the Inject-Ed Trainers feature resilient and durable life-like skin surfaces. 

In addition to injection trainers, DiaMedical offers safety needles and syringes designed to teach proper injection technique. Dynarex SecureSafe Safety Insulin Syringes are high-quality hypodermic syringes designed to deliver insulin effectively and precisely. Each sterile, disposable syringe is securely attached to prevent needle pop-off and features a locking protective sheath that helps prevent needlestick injuries. The needle is coated with medical-grade lubricant and has a double-beveled tip for smoother insertion and improved patient comfort. 

Dynarex Sterile Alcohol Prep Pads contain 70% isopropyl alcohol solution and provide disinfection prior to injection or venipuncture. These pads help students master a crucial beginning step in the medication administration process, creating a disinfected surface to protect the patient from harmful germs. Learning to properly dispose of needles by utilizing sharps containers is key to help reduce risk of injury and infections during the medication administration process. 

Demo Dose® Simulated Medications and Fluids 

A vital part of the medication administration process is the prescribing and dispensing of the correct medication. Demo Dose® Simulated Medications mimic brand name drug packaging and enable students to use critical thinking to identify medications to ensure they are administering the right meds. Simulated IV Fluids and Blood Bags are also designed to replicate active counterparts in all physical aspects, helping students and healthcare professionals learn to distinguish between various types of IV fluids.
