The Life/form® NG Tube & Trach Skills Simulator is designed to aid with the training and practice of vital tracheostomy skills and care for patients with respiratory conditions. The simulator is also designed for instruction of gastrointestinal care procedures through nasal and oral access. With a newly designed Life/form® head and torso, the simulator features realistic landmarks, trachea, esophagus, lungs, and stomach.
For enhanced realism, methyl cellulose can be mixed with water to simulate mucous-like fluids of a real patient. Fluid can also be added to the lungs and stomach for realistic tracheostomy care and suctioning. The simulator also allows for the practice of dressing changes and cuff inflation.
Other realistic procedures include: NG tube care, including insertion, irrigation, and removal; gastric lavage and gavage; feeding tube insertion and removal with the ability to practice feeding; nasoenteric and esophageal tube care; oropharyngeal and nasopharyngeal care; and ET tube care. The simulator is designed to use size 6 ET tube (LF01170U) and a size 6 NG tube. Spray-pump lubricant, a packet of methyl cellulose, instruction manual, and hard carry case are included. The simulator does not include tracheostomy or NG tube. Three-year warranty.
