Designed for learning and practicing the technique necessary to perform an emergency cricothyrotomy! Paramedics, EMTs, other emergency personnel, anesthesiologists, all now have the opportunity to perfect this technique. Normally, the availability of cadaver material has determined the degree of procedural practice. Fortunately, this is no longer the case. Life/form® Cricothyrotomy Simulator now offers the perfect alternative to cadavers. Palpable landmarks include the cricoid and thyroid cartilage.
The prominentia laryngea is prominent on the hyperextended neck. All landmarks are accurately placed and allow for fast action. The “trachea” in this simulator is replaceable as the “airway” passes completely through from top to bottom. This allows checking the stylet and obdurator placement once the “stab” has been made. Complete with a full-size neck, ties can be used to hold the obdurator in a secure position. Life/form® Cricothyrotomy Simulator comes complete with five replacement skins and five cartilage inserts, REN cleaner, instruction guide, and a durable carrying case.
