- Detailed Description
DetailsSimulated blood, new stain resistant formula. For simulated blood with the same viscosity of real blood, refer to items 2491 and 2494. To reconstitute add 1 quart of distilled water. Sh. wt. 1 lb.
Frequently Asked Questions
1491 - Simulated Blood - One Quart - New Stain Resistant
What is the difference between the 1491 & 1494 and the 2491 & 2491 Simulated Blood?
The 1491 (quart) & 1494 (gallon) of Simulated Blood is designed to be used with most all VATA models. This blood provides a realistic training experience. The 2491(quart) & 2494 (gallon) of Simulated Blood is of a viscosity closer to the viscosity of human blood for a practicing experience that requires this property.
Can I use simulated blood in all of VATA’s models?
We do not recommend using either simulated blood in 0600 Peter PICC Line™ as it can be difficult to see the catheter tip in the SVC viewing vial. We do not recommend the use of the 2491 or 2494 Simulated Blood in the 1800 NITA Newborn™ model due to the small gauge catheters used, it can be difficult to get a “flashback” when accessing.
Is the simulated blood stain-resistant?
Due to the variety of materials and conditions we do not label these as non-staining but as “stain resistant” as it is not possible to test all materials and conditions. If the simulated blood does come in contact with fabric we have found that washing immediately in cold water usually removes the discoloration.
I received my bottle of simulated blood and there is only a small amount in the bottle. Did it leak out?
In order to minimized shipping costs, simulated blood is shipped as a concentrate requiring you add distilled water to reconstitute to the full amount. Amount of water to add can be found of the product label.
