Advanced Chest Tube Simulation
Realistic hands-on training advances medical skill training for improved patient outcomes.
The TruMan Trauma X system is a lifelike chest tube trauma manikin (and surgical airway trainer) providing realistic skill training in pre-hospital chest trauma management.
Replaceable chest drain inserts are available in economy and premium versions, sold in pairs and labeled for use on the left or right side of manikin.
Both hemothorax chest drain inserts allow trainers to include liquid to simulate hemothorax.
Premium hemothorax chest drain inserts include three layers of tissue representing skin, fat and muscle for realistic surgical incision training.
Economy hemothorax chest drain inserts are made from one solid layer, creating a low cost solution for training in multiple scenarios (perfect for ATLS courses).
We also sell a Super Saver Trauma X Training Pack for cost-effective training for 50 students (more than 20% discount).
All TurCorp manikin consumables interchange quickly and easily to facilitate efficient training.
Chest Tube Placement Training
Tube thoracostomy can be used to drain air, blood, pus, bile or other fluids from the pleural cavity to treat thoracic injuries. Chest tubes can also be inserted to treat empyema (an infection in the pleural cavity) or pneumothorax (collapsed lung).
Chest tube insertion is most commonly done in the 5th, 6th or 7th intercostal space at the posterior axillary line. The precise location of chest tube insertion depends on the condition being treated.
The TruMan Trauma X manikin is ideal for training in accurate chest tube placement to advance medical skill training and improve patient outcomes. Made from durable materials, our chest tube trainer is designed to withstand repeated use in a busy classroom setting.
