TraumaMan® – Surgical Trauma Training Manikin  

Trainer for Chest Tube Insertion (Otherwise known as Pleural Drain, Thoracic Catheter, Chest Drain, Intercostal Drain or Tube Thoracostomy), Cricothyroidotomy (or Cricothyrotomy), Needle Decompression, Pneumothorax, Tracheostomy, Pericardiocentesis, Diagnostic Peritoneal Lavage (DPL) or Diagnostic Peritoneal Aspiration (DPA), IV Cutdown and more.

The TraumaMan® System is an anatomically correct human body form that allows students to practice a variety of advanced surgical procedures. It includes a simulated human torso with a ventilator and four anatomically correct surgical zones, plus an ankle base for IV Cutdown. Its flexible design and replaceable tissues give each student a “first cut” experience and make it easy to incorporate into team trauma training.

 

Used for Advanced Trauma Life Support Training (ATLS) since 2001

TraumaMan is used to train over 30,000 medical professionals each year. Since its release, it has also become widely used in military courses, EMS training, trauma surgery, and advanced airway simulations.

TraumaMan Surgical Abdomen Team Training System

Catastrophic Event Team Training

The TraumaMan Surgical Abdomen Training System offers an excellent solution in the growing area of team training. It allows you to transform your existing TraumaMan System’s abdominal area into a blood pumping abdominal surgical site that’s flexible enough to accommodate a wide array of open and laparoscopic surgical scenarios.

Full surgical teams can work on improving technical, task-related skills along with critical communication and teamwork abilities. Team training might include the diagnosis and treatment of a renal or aortic injury, the management of emergency surgery, preparation for a catastrophic surgical event, and building confidence and reliability in an individual role within a team framework. It is powered by Simulab’s new blood circulation system so students can assess and control blood loss with suction and an easy to use remote control.

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
