The Med Dimensions Thoracocentesis trainer consists of 3 main parts: The chest simulate, the plural space simulate, and the bottom covering.
Chest Simulate – The chest simulate consists of multiple different materials designed to simulate the skin, fat, muscles, and ribs of a canine chest. The skin is very durable and can be tented for needle or tube insertion. Within the skin we have special fabrics which allow the skin to self heal after a needle or tube is removed.
Plural Space Simulate – Inside the model is a simulate for pleural space of the chest, holding a maximum of 300-500 ml/cc’s of air.
Bottom Covering – A piece of felt meant to keep debris out of the inside of the model. This felt can be cut to size or replaced with any fabric of your choosing.
