The right chest area of Chester Chest has a 9.6Fr tunneled central catheter that is visible up to the clavicle. The Dacron cuff on this catheter is also discernable. The external jugular vein is slightly raised with an opening to attach your own triple lumen catheter and there is also an opening in the upper chest area for placement of a subclavian catheter.
Chester’s arm features a dual 5Fr PICC exiting the basilic vein from the inner bicep area, which is currently the preferred site for placement. The basilic vein is slightly raised for easy identification. Also featured is a pre-positioned 20g IV catheter in the forearm. Posterior to the PICC insertion site is a recessed area for the placement of a peripheral port. (Optional port shown but not included – see part 0417 to order.) The base of the recessed area is made of soft material that permits the port to “float” when accessed. This area is covered with a removable tissue-like flap which, when placed over the port, provides the realistic feel of palpating and accessing.
Included with this model is a real port that makes it possible to simulate accessing the following IVAD placements: Normal, Tipping, Wandering, and Deeply Placed in the left chest area.
Successful access is confirmed by blood return. Fluid can be infused, and blood withdrawn from all the lines.
Chester Chest is a great tool for teaching, competency testing, skills assessment, fluid infusion, blood withdrawal and dressing securement techniques associated with central access devices!
Optional soft carry case also available.
Also available with the Chester Chest Advanced Arm.
