This tension pneumothorax training torso enables an instructor to teach and a student to practise properly inserting a needle to permit built-up air pressure to escape the thorax.
Emergency care doctors recommend this relatively simple procedure to release air pressure from the thorax of a trauma victim.
This tension pneumothorax training model will enable emergency medical personnel to develop the required skills before administering needle decompression to a live patient.
This pneumothorax simulator accepts needle thoracentesis in the second intercostal space in the midclavicular line, or the fifth intercostal space in the mid-axillary line.
The model comes complete with replaceable lungs, a rib cage, and a soft, lifelike replaceable skin.
The unit can be punctured 75 to 100 times before replacement is necessary.
