Chester Chest Training Torso with Advanced Arm


SKU: SB18636 Categories: ,

Access routes allow opportunity to practice blood withdrawal, heparinization, and fluid infusion. Chester Chest™ is a unique teaching tool that enables clinicians and others to develop total competence with the most common types of long-term vascular access routes within one simple, compact, and portable training aid. A great tool for training, competency testing and skills’ assessment. Physicians, nurses, home health staff, patients, and support persons find Chester Chest™ the most efficient, time-saving, visual, and true-to-life aid in the teaching of implantable vascular access devices, external central catheters, and peripherally placed central catheters. This lifelike model of a human torso is the only teaching aid offering a tactile sensation that is dramatically realistic when palpating the location of implanted imports. This is achieved through a unique tissue-like material duplicating the feel of human tissue. The areas around all the device sites can be used to practice cleansing, application of dressings and securement devices. Chester Chest™ can be used in either an upright or supine position. Chester Chest™ features a detachable advanced arm which is also sold separately (SB45082U). Each unit is provided with a pre-positioned, surgically placed central catheter and peripherally placed central catheter. All the catheters are attached to a simulated “blood” reservoir bag in the arm to permit the practice of “blood” withdrawal and fluid infusion. Cleansing, application of dressings and securement devices can be demonstrated on all three catheters. The right chest area has a 9.6 FR tunneled central catheter that is visible up to the clavicle. The Dacron cuff is also discernible. The external jugular vein is slightly raised with an opening for you to attach your own catheter. There is also an opening for a subclavian catheter. The left chest area is a five-piece unit consisting of: a real implanted port under the chest tissue flap, a rigid underlying surface with molded ribs and a recessed area for the interchangeable Difficult Accessing Inserts, and three Difficult Accessing Inserts. The artificial blood provides confirmation of proper needle location when “blood” is aspirated – just like the real thing! Heparinization and fluid infusion can be practiced using the secondary reservoir bag. Complete unit includes life-size torso with advanced detachable right arm, real chest port, chest tissue flap, three Difficult Accessing Inserts, 9.6 FPR tunneled central catheter, 5 FR dual PICC, IV catheter, recessed area for attachment of optional peripheral port, “blood” reservoir bags, and user’s information guide. Carrying case is not included. Implanted port included. Six-month limited warranty.
