Excellent for training, competency testing, and skills’ assessment! Physicians, nurses, home health staff, and support persons find this human torso model the most efficient, time-saving, visual, and true-to-life aid in the teaching of implantablevascular access devices, external central catheters, and peripherally placed central catheters. The only teaching aid offering a tactile sensation that is dramatically realistic when palpating the location of implanted imports, which is achieved through a unique tissue-like material duplicating the feel of human tissue. The areas around all device sites can be used to practice cleansing, application of dressings and securement devices. Can be used in an upright or supine position. Features a detachable advanced arm which is also sold separately (SB45082U); a pre-positioned, surgically placed central catheter; and a peripherally placed central catheter. All catheters are attached to a simulated “blood” reservoir bag in the arm to permit the practice of “blood” withdrawal and fluid infusion. Cleansing, application of dressings and securement devices can be demonstrated on all three catheters. Right chest area has a 9.6 FR tunneled central catheter that is visible up to the clavicle. Dacron cuff is also discernible. External jugular vein is slightly raised with an opening for attaching your own catheter. Opening for subclavian catheter also featured. Left chest area is a five-piece unit consisting of: a real implanted port under the chest tissue flap, a rigid underlying surface with molded ribs and a recessed area for the interchangeable Difficult Accessing Inserts, and three Difficult Accessing Inserts. Artificial blood provides confirmation of proper needle location when “blood” is aspirated. Heparinization and fluid infusion can be practiced using the secondary reservoir bag. Complete unit includes life-size torso with advanced detachable right arm, real chest port, chest tissue flap, three Difficult Accessing Inserts, 9.6 FPR tunneled central catheter, 5 FR dual PICC, IV catheter, recessed area for attachment of optional peripheral port, “blood” reservoir bags, and user’s information guide.
