Life/form® Pediatric Head is an invaluable tool for teaching and learning the techniques used for injections and infusions in the jugular and temporal veins of a newborn to twelve-month-old infant. This functional head is realistically modeled to represent a six-month-old infant.
The Life/form Pediatric Head has bee designed to give the user a realistic sensation and response. The lifelike vinyl skin rolls as you palpate to allow the location of the vein. The synthetic rubber tubing for the veins was carefully chosen to provide a lifelike simulation of vein size and feeling of puncture and palpation for practicing venipuncture. The temporal vein of the Life/form® Pediatric Head is easily accessible for IV infusions. Practice in the jugular vein is equally realistic. The neck is constructed of soft, flexible foam to provide a realistic feel of palpation and puncture. Includes a Life/form® Head with skin and veins, fluid supply bag, two different gauge winged infusion needles, one pint Life/form® blood, teaching guide, and hard carry case. Fluid supply stand not included. Five-year warranty. Carton size: 19" x 10" x 5".
Maintenance: The Life/form® Pediatric Head was designed with replaceable skin and veins. Replacement kits are available and easy to use. To extend the life of each skin/vein set, an aerosol sealant is available (LF01099U
) to seal punctures in the tubing and prevent leakage.
