The Life/form® Tracheostomy Care Simulator is the most realistic representation of a patient on the market today. The attention to detail incorporated into this pseudo-patient is amazing. Suctioning techniques, proper cuff inflation, dressing changes, and other techniques can be practiced and critiqued. This simulator replicates an adult male containing oral and nasal passages and all appropriate anatomy - pharynx, epiglottis, trachea, esophagus, stoma, cricoid cartilage, and representative cervical vertebrae. The chest area contains left and right bronchi and the bronchial tree. The esophagus terminates 2 inches below the trachea opening. The side of the neck and chest area over the bronchial tree allow viewing of the suction and trachea tube.
The viewing window at the bottom of the simulator shows the location of a suction catheter in the right bronchus (seen) or left bronchus (unseen). Oral, nasopharyngeal, nasotracheal, and tracheal suctioning can be practiced. Cleansing of the stoma area can be performed the same as on an actual patient. Changing dressings and ties is also possible, and the experience is very close to that of an actual patient. Confidence and practice are at your fingertips with the Life/form Tracheostomy Care Simulator. Comes complete with instruction guide and hard carry case. Tracheostomy tube is not included. Five-year warranty. Size: 21" x 21" x 11"
