Now you can train residents and staff in the techniques of performing central venous catheterization using the NASCO Life/form® Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN) Simulator. All appropriate landmarks are palpable for realistic identification of injection sites. Synthetic skin may be removed from shoulder to reveal dissected musculature and location of veins, arteries, and other landmarks. With the skin in place, you can actually insert the needle introducer. The tactile sensation is dramatically realistic. Artificial blood is connected to provide confirmation of proper needle location when "blood" flows from needle, just like the real thing! Venous catheters can be snaked into place once the introducer is properly inserted. Skin and veins will stand up to repeated puncture to allow training by dozens of staff members. The Life/form® skin and veins are easily replaced once worn. Also practice proper care of the puncture site and parenteral administrations. Practice measuring central venous pressure. Bandaging techniques can be practiced with no fear of infection or other harm to a patient. In emergency medical training programs, practice delivery of large volumes of fluids in trauma. Inject for swift action as required for cardiac life support procedures. Life/form® Heart Catheterization Simulator includes replaceable skin, tubing sealant, needles, 1 quart of Life/form® Blood, and teaching guide in a hard storage case. One-year warranty.
