Tracheostomy Care Simulator
The Lifeform Tracheostomy Care Simulator is the most realistic approximation of a patient available today. Careful attention to detail is incorporated into this simulated patient. Suctioning techniques, proper cuff inflation, dressing changes and other techniques can be practised and critiqued.
Simulator replicates an adult male containing oral and nasal passages and all appropriate anatomy:
Representative cervical vertebrae.
The chest area contains left and right bronchi and the bronchial tree.
The oesophagus dead ends ~5 cm 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 practised. Cleanse the stoma area just as on an actual patient.
Changing dressings and ties is also possible and the experience is very close to an actual one. Confidence and practise are at your fingertips with this Lifeform Tracheostomy Care Simulator.
