The Lifeform Pericardiocentesis Simulator is designed specifically to teach the skills needed to perform this difficult procedure correctly. As well as ongoing chest tube maintenance and the management of pre-hospital chest trauma.
The simulator has a pressurised tension pneumothorax site, also a site for the surgical placement of a functional chest tube. Fluid colour, volume and viscosity can be controlled by the instructor.
The manikin can be used with any commercially available closed water-seal drainage unit. Pericardiocentesis may be performed in the left subxiphoid space and in the left fifth intercostal space.
Accurate placement of the needle will allow for the withdrawal of fluid from the simulated pericardium.
