"Lance" can be used for the simulation of finger stick and blood glucose testing. This product will enable a student or patient to have a realistic experience when testing blood sugar, using a glucose meter, and obtaining a reading. "Lance" fits over the finger of a standardized patient, or patient simulator, and has a protective liner that will prevent the actual finger from being pierced with the lancing device.
"Lance MT" is available empty and can be filled with a control solution matching the glucose meter being used. This option allows users to use their meter, and get a reading with the control solution being the "Blood" in the simulated finger. It is also the source of the blood glucose levels, but are not included and need to be purchased elsewhere.
"Lance" is available with a simulated blood fill kit, but the fingers will be shipped in the "Lance MT" format. The fill kit includes 8mL of simulated blood and a 5mL syringe with 23G industrial needle. The simulated blood will not register on actual blood glucose meters. Users will be able to lance the fingertip, get a "blood" sample and proceed in the simulation with either a simulated blood glucose machine (not included), or an instructor provided simulated blood glucose level.
Each package contains three fingers. Stock Dark skin tone now available. Instructions for use are included in each package of "Lance MT" and "Lance" with a fill kit. These instructions detail the filling and use of "Lance".
