VATA Inc.'s Port "Body in a Box", is a low cost, compact, lightweight, quick to set up and store training model for the teaching and practice of palpating and accessing IVADs (Implanted Vascular Access Devices). This anatomical healthcare model is supplied with a real port and it’s possible to simulate accessing the following IVAD placements: normal, "tipping", "wandering", and deeply placed. Successful access is confirmed by a simulated blood return, as the model has its own 35cc simulated blood reservoir bag neatly tucked inside. Can be accessed in or out of the case. No set-up or put away steps required for patient simulation. Great model to develop hand-eye coordination and gain confidence that easily transfers to patient accessing! The simulator measures 9.5 in. x 6.8 in. x 2 in. and weighs 2.37 lbs.
VATA's Body In A Box
Supplied with a real port, this simulation lab model allows individuals to:
- Simulate accessing "tipping", "wandering" or deeply placed IVADs.
- Confirm successful access with a "blood" return.
- Improve hand-eye coordination and gain confidence
- Available in both light and dark skin tones.
Compact, lightweight, quick to set up and store. Great tool for training, competency testing and skills assessment for port (IVAD) palpation and accessing. Comes with a real port. With this model, it is possible to simulate accessing the following port placements: normal, tipping, wandering or deeply placed. Successful access is confirmed by a blood return. Fluid can be infused and blood withdrawn, as the model has its own 35cc simulated blood reservoir bag neatly tucked inside. Accessing can be taught and practiced within the case or removed for group use. The two round inserts, used to simulate the wandering and tipping port, are interchangeable to vary the experience. The skin flap has two thicknesses - the 1/4 side will approximate the feel when palpating a port at an average depth, while the 1/2 side will approximate the feel when palpating a deeply placed port. The skin flap is made of VATAs new Dermalike II (effective 10/15/08) material, with 60% less needle drag when accessing, improved tear resistance to accept twice the number of needle sticks, no oily/sticky surface, and is stain resistant. The underlying soft tissue block permits the port to €œfloat when palpating through the skin flap, for a truly realistic experience. Size: 9 1/2 x 6 1/2. Sh. wt. 3 lbs.
