Need an arm picture

  1. 0 So, one of my not so bright nurses didn't measure a PICC line migration properly. I need to re-inservice the whole building. I don't want to stand in front of them and blah blah blah.
    What I need is a picture/sketch of an arm on which I can draw PICC lines with different lengths of catheter migration.
    I'd like to have the nurses measure and compare to another measurement to make sure they know what to do.
    Thanks in advance for your help.
    PS. We've already tried sticking our various sized arms in the copier....good for a laugh but not so good for a teaching tool.

    Could you trace the outside of your arm on a piece of poster board and then cut out the tracings and draw your "PICC" lines on them?

    I found a web site with pictures of body parts.....there was a half chest with an arm. Thanks for your suggestion.
