New and improved! Catherization is one of the basic skills all nursing students must learn, and to learn the techniques, they must practice. Any patient volunteers? Not likely! But the Life/form simulator allows demonstration and practice in urinary catheterization without embarrassment or discomfort to the patient or the students. In addition, the catheterization simulator is useful for anatomical identification and demonstration of perineal care. The realism of Nasco's Life/form Female Catheterization Simulator will help your students bridge the gap from classroom to bedside with ease and comfort.
With the Life/form Male Catheterization Simulator, catheterization can be practiced just as on a real patient. A lubricated catheter can be inserted in the urethral orifice, passed through the urethra, and into the bladder. When the bladder is successfully entered, artificial urine (water) will flow from the catheter. The student will feel the normal restrictions caused by the mucosal folds, bulbous urethra, and the internal urethral sphincter, just prior to entrance into the bladder. The experience teaches proper positioning and movement of the penis to allow the catheter to pass easily with a minimum of discomfort to the patient. Includes a hard carry case, lubricant, catheter, and teaching guide. Recently redesigned to include obstruction removal tool, for use when lubricant builds up. Fluid supply stand not included. 5 Year warranty.
Made in the USA by Nasco.
*NOTE: A Foley catheter can be used if extreme care is taken to inflate the cuff only when it is in the proper position. Just as in a real patient, the cuff must be completely deflated before the catheter is removed. Improper use of a Foley can result in damage to the simulator, just as when using a Foley catheter with a real patient.
