Classroom discussions will coem alive when practicing skills on this interesting and unique trainer. Part of patient assessment includes observation of swelling in the extremities. Swelling is caused by the abnormal accumulation of fluid within the interstitial spaces of tissue. Pressing on teh surface of the skin may leave an indentation that does not immediately rebound once the pressure is released. This indention is known as pitting edema. Pitting edema is a subjective observation and is graded by the depth of the indentation and the time it persists after the release of pressure. The Life/form® Pitting Edema Trainer uses life-like simulated tissue to demonstrate Stages 1+ through 4+. Includes four tissue pads representing each stage, insert tray, key card with cleaning/care instructions, and storage box.
