I currently teach radiologic technology to both first and second year radiography students.  Part of the curriculum involves being able to proficiently perform venipuncture.  This Power Point is an excellent resource for our students.  It gives them all of the necessary information they need to know prior to, during and after cannualtion.  It is very thorough, well-thought out and has a great flow to it.  The information was in-depth, yet broken down into simple enough terms for even a layment to understand. I would like to use this in my classroom in the future as a supplement to the information I typically provide.  Thank you for this excellent presentation.

Technical Remarks:

The pictures, diagrams and audio content of this presentation were more than adequate.  I found them easy to follow and very effective at providing the necessary information the students need to be proficient in venipuncture and IV cannulation.  Their were no glitches or hang-ups with the presentation.
