Made in the USA by Nasco, this incredibly lifelike model is among the best on the market today for teaching and practicing breast palpation techniques. Useful for health care students and patients, this is an excellent addition to hospitals and clinics to use in teaching women the proper techniques for breast examination, while allowing for patient comfort and modesty. The specially made vinyl model is designed to create a lifelike look and feel, as well as a realistic fluid breast mass. This mass allows for displacement of breast tissue with palpation in a very similar way to how it occurs in a live patient.
Both breasts contain abnormalities. The left has a small nodule in the upper outer quadrant and a fibroadenoma in the lower inside quadrant. The right breast has a fixed lump in the upper outer quadrant, a fluid filled cyst in the lower inside quadrant, and a round lump movable discrete mass directly under the nipple. The simulator allows women to practice all phases of breast examination in both a sitting and supine position.
This simulator is designed with a concave back, allowing comfortably placement against the patient for ease in demonstration or practicing palpation techniques. The simulator can also be worn with the included 3 ft neck strap or 4 ft waist strap, for even more options. The Life/form Breast Examination Simulator is complete with teaching guide, American Cancer Society Guide to Breast Examination, and storage box. 5 Year warranty.
