Life/form® Pitting Edema Trainer

Your students' participation will noticeably improve when practicing skills on this one-of-a-kind trainer. Patient assessment includes observation of swelling in the extremities which is caused by the abnormal accumulation of fluid inside the interstitial spaces of tissue. When pressure is applied to the surface of the skin it will leave an indentation that does not immediately rebound once the pressure is released. This indentation is known as pitting edema. Pitting edema is a subjective observation and is graded by the depth of the indentation and the time it persists after the release of pressure. The Life/form® Pitting Edema Trainer uses life-like simulated tissue to demonstrate the four stages of the condition:

Stage 1+ - Mild pitting, slight indentation (2mm), no perceptible swelling of the area
Stage 2+ - Moderate pitting, indentation (4mm) subsides rapidly
Stage 3+ - Deep pitting, indentation (6mm) remains for a short time, the area looks swollen
Stage 4+ - Very deep pitting, indentation (8mm) lasts a long time, the area is very swollen

Skills that can be practiced:
  • Assessment of stages (1+ through 4+)
  • Assessment of depth (2mm - 8mm)
  • Assessment of rebound time to baseline
Includes four tissue pads representing each stage, insert tray, a key card with cleaning/care instructions, and storage box. Five-year warranty.
