    it's very cool. It's a fake syringe, with fake powder and you can fake mix it. and then do a fake shot. LOL. Ours came with a DVD. I am bringing one to our school nurse for her to show the teachers.

    I agree, we do too, but you can really only train on them once. This is a reusable device.

    here's what it looks like - the vial is empty, no powder and no liquid in the syringe, but you simulate sticking th very large needle into the vial and then when you pull back on the syringe it looks like it's filling up. The needle collapses so you can pretend to actually give the shot. so it's nice to be able to go through the motions over and over, getting a feel for exactly how large everything is.

    (the kit - it's white, not red)



    (Packaged up just like real glucagon)


    The pieces - in real life size.



    The practice needle just collapses. (Ian freaked for a moment when I came at him with this LOL)
