Chester Chest™ makes it possible to teach and practice the infusion, withdrawal, care, securement and dressings of the following vascular access lines: IVAD placed in the chest and optional upper arm, Hickman-like central line, PICC line, IV site and optional Triple lumen jugular and subclavian catheters.
Chester Chest™ with Standard Arm features an arm with a dual lumen 5FR PICC exiting the basilic vein from the inner bicep area and a pre-positioned 20g IV catheter in the forearm.
Chester Chest™ with Advanced Arm features an arm with a dual lumen 5FR PICC exiting the basilic vein from the inner bicep area, a pre-positioned 20g IV catheter in the forearm and proximal to the PICC insertion site is recessed area for the placement of an optional peripheral IVAD. The base of this recessed area for the optional peripheral IVAD is made of a soft material that permits the IVAD to “float” when palpated and accessed.
With these models, it is possible to simulate accessing the following IVAD placements: normal, “tipping”, “wandering”, or deeply placed. Successful access is confirmed by a blood return. Fluid can be infused and blood withdrawn from all the lines.
Chester Chest can be used in either an upright or supine position.
