Chester Chest - with New Advanced Arm, which can be ordered separately to upgrade your existing Chester Chest.
The New Advanced Arm has a greater degree of rotation and extension than our previous arm, just as you would experience on a patient when accessing the PICC or catheter sites can be used to practice cleansing, application of dressings and securement devices, fluid infusion and withdrawal.
- The New Advanced Arm part #VT-2386 has a dual lumen 5FR PICC (Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter) exiting the basilic vein from the inner bicep area, which is currently the preferred placement.
- The basilic vein is slightly raised for easy identification. Posterior to the PICC insertion site is a recessed area for the placement of a peripheral port. (Optional port shown but not included - see part VT-417 to order).
- The base of the recessed area is made of soft material that permits the port to “float” when accessed. This area is covered with a removable tissue-like flap which, when placed over the port, provides the realistic feel of palpating and accessing.
- An additional feature of the new arm is a pre-positioned 20g IV catheter in the forearm.
Chester Chest can be used in either an upright or supine position.
