Students will be able to learn and practice, with incredible accuracy and realism, a procedure which has been difficult to simulate in the past. Prior to the Intraosseous Infusion Simulator, educators resorted to unsanitary chicken and turkey bones. PALS programs will find this teaching aid a convenient and sanitary alternative.
This simulator is also very cost-effective due to replacement bones and skins which extend the life of the simulator indefinitely. Use a 15-gauge needle during simulation. The bones used in the model have been designed with four sides, each side having the ability to be punctured several times. In addition, three palpable landmarks, including patella, tibia, and tibial tuberosity are located in both legs. Both legs have also been designed so that aspiration is possible.
Life/form® Intraosseous Infusion Simulator represents a six-month-old infant. Included with the simulator are 10 replaceable bone inserts, two sets of replacement leg skins, two white towelettes, syringe with tubing, blood powder, sealing wax, 1/2 oz. liquid lubricant, mixing bottle, needle, and hard carrying case. Five-year warranty.
