BOSS Introductory Video

Basic Open Surgical Skills (BOSS) is a flexible platform for developing basic to advanced surgical skills. The platform combines task features to develop instrument handling, suturing, injection, and knot tying techniques. It provides an easy to clean platform for synthetic or cadaveric task modules and its ergonomic design creates a realistic tool for improving skills. BOSS can be purchase at a discount in a variety of Package Options or as a Volume Package to create a 10-Student Surgical Skills Lab.

FemoraLineMan™

It is an incredible training solution for femoral line placement. With the same ultra-realistic tissue properties Simulab is known for, FemoraLineMan allows for real-time ultrasound guidance for catheter placement.

Skill Development

  • Practice the full vascular access procedure using the femoral vein under ultrasound guidance or blind/landmark insertion techniques
  • Practice palpating external landmarks to identify vessel location
  • Practice use of ultrasound for:
    • Developing psychomotor skills required for obtaining visualization during cannulation
    • Visualizing arterial pulse and venous compression
    • Identifying the anatomical location of the target vessel
    • Visualizing needle cannulation, threading guidewire, and catheter placement
    • Practicing femoral arterial puncture, catheter insertion or blind/landmark techniques

Features

  • Anatomically correct, ultrasound compatible, body form, with all relevant palpating landmarks and vascular anatomy
  • Market leading durability—self-sealing tissues and veins provide the greatest value, in the frequency of needle sticks and full catheterizations per access site, of any trainer on the market
  • Exceptional ultrasound imaging through repeated use—needle sticks and full catheterizations do not degrade the image acuity
  • Two colors of simulated blood differentiate the arterial and venous vessels—provides immediate feedback of unsuccessful cannulation
  • Arterial pulse is present and vein realistically compresses under palpation
  • Easily adjustable venous pressure regulator allows for vein compression or low-pressure simulation scenarios
  • Replaceable tissues come pre-filled with blue venous and red arterial fluid. Tissues can remain filled when not in use and are easy to refill with provided fluid when necessary
  • Portability—practice simulation in settings of actual patient care

Nasogastric Feeding

This manikin was designed to demonstrate to parents/ carers the technique for inserting nasogastric and gastrostomy tubes in children. This simple to use simulator helps identify the stages of placement, ensuring that the nasogastric device is passed safely and correctly.

It has been significantly improved so that fluids can be introduced into the stomach. The transparent cover is now removable and the stomach can be removed for cleaning.

Stoma Care

Various types of stoma can provide nurses with self-training in coping with patients with a colostomy or ileostomy. Dressings and plasters can be used on the torso repeatedly.
