Chester Chest™ – with a new, more advanced arm which you can also order separately to upgrade your Chester Chest™! Chester Chest™ is an unequalled teaching aid which makes it possible to learn how to use the following long term vascular accesses perfectly:
- Implanted Port
- Central Venous Catheter (CVC)
- Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter (PICC)
The new, more advanced arm has a double lumen 5FR-PICC (Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter), which comes out of the V. basilica – the preferred access. In the area of the PICC catheter there is a cavity for inserting a peripheral port (this port is pictured but is not included with the delivery). A further feature of the new arm is a 20G IV catheter in the lower arm. The new, more advanced arm has greater rotation and extension than the previous model and can be used for practising cleaning, applying bandages and fixings, as well as inserting and removing IVs.
The right side of the chest has been equipped with a surgically placed CVC (central venous catheter). Furthermore, catheters can be inserted into the V. jugularis externa and into the V. subclavia via the openings provided.
The left side of the chest has an implanted port. Using the various tissue flaps provided, difficult insertions can be practised: deep, slanted, slipped or wandering ports.
Chester Chest™ can be used in a upright or horizontal position. It is delivered with a blood reservoir bag, talcum powder and instructions for use.
