Chest Drain & Needle Decompression Trainer (Light Skin Tone)

Limbs & Things’ Chest Drain & Needle Decompression Trainer has been designed to meet the specific requirements of healthcare professionals. The trainer is also approved for use on ATLS V10 courses, with needle decompression possible at the 2nd, 4th and 5th intercostal spaces.

This product is the ideal simulator to deliver training in both surgical and guide-wire assisted thoracostomy and thoracentesis, chest drainage and needle decompression techniques. Chest tube insertion is possible on both types of pad, with the Advanced model’s eco-lucent material allowing practice of Seldinger’s ultrasound technique.

Features of Chest Drain & Needle Decompression Trainer:

Needle Decompression Pads, located on the midclavicular lines, are used for the management of tension pneumothorax and produce a realistic “hiss” of air releasing. A saline filled syringe can also be used to observe bubbles of gas releasing from the chest cavity.

Standard pads included in this Trainer come backed with a “pleural layer” that offers a realistic “pop” on insertion of finger or forceps into the pleural space. These foam pads are suitable for use with adhesive dressings, and sutures can be applied to secure the chest tube.

Advanced pads can be used with mock fluids to simulate pleural effusions or hemothorax when using ultrasound guided techniques. The locking mechanism included in the Trainer gives a firm seal against leakage, and the silicone skin self-seals after needle and guide-wire insertions. (Stress-tested under lab conditions for repeated usage.)

Using the black pump provided, chest decompression sites can be recharge with air for repeated practice scenarios. The blue Respiratory Swing pump enables the trainer to simulate movement within the liquid of the chest cavity when using ultrasound guided procedures.
