Chest Drain Insertion Pads - Subcutaneous Tunnelling
These pads are double the size of the standard pads. They have the same multiple layers representing skin, subcutaneous fat, fascia, muscle and pleura. Each pad is compatible with the whole insertion procedure from prepping the skin and infiltrating with local anaesthetic, insertion, tunnelling, suturing the tube in place and applying the dressing. Being larger they permit practice of insertion of a pigtail catheter and then tunnelling it subcutaneously used for longer term patient management. They are used in conjunction with a different manikin skin that has larger windows to match the pad size, which is easily fitted to the current SuperAnnie 1 and 3 models.
