New innovative peripheral insertion method of IV cannula

Gabriela Stefkova, Maria Zamboriová


Objective: Effective practice is increasingly seen as a critical dimension of the professional development of healthcare professionals. Reducing the number of punctures when placing an intravenous (IV) cannula reduces pain and further suffering for the patient. At the same time, the proper technique of IV cannulas save time for healthcare providers.
Background: The method of securing venous access by intravenous cannula is part of the teaching of medical and nursing study programs. Critical thinking is the essential skill necessary to assess any information, explain the causes, and the ability to solve problems. University education develops this skill through strategic teaching of simulation methods.
Methods: In connection with new information of the method of IV cannulas by “magic movement”, we decided to use the Core model for critical reflection designed by Cottrell (2010), to evaluate new techniques in preclinical education of students from general medicine and nursing on IV cannulation in simulation laboratories.
Results: The results have shown that student performance levels will be increased by applying critical thinking and simulation as an option for integrated preclinical training for future healthcare professionals.
Conclusions: Innovative method of introducing peripheral IV cannula provides a framework to guide curriculum development and teaching strategies as well as to support the advancement of cognitive and empirical skills of healthcare professionals. A new technique for applying “magic movement” of IV cannulation, we innovate the curriculum of basic nursing practices while contributing to the development of evidence-based practice.
