An alternative to medical manikins and a unique tool for simulation in medical education, the Avthor is the only wearable intrathoracic chest tube for simulation in healthcare education on the market to teach chest tube management and care. With a standardized patient wearing the device during simulation, students will practice the movement of the patient and critical communication skills. In addition to having the ability to hook up to a pleurovac, the Avthor provides the best high-fidelity medical simulation for patient care that includes: tidaling and fluctuation, blood release, air leak, high intrathoracic pressure, and the ability to assess for crepitus. Coupled with the transport simulation unit, the Avthor chest tube simulator can enhance training opportunities with wearable medical technology for any simulation learning experience.
This pressurized system mimics intrathoracic pressure ensuring accurate tidaling and fluctuation. You can even mimic an air leak to enhance the learning experience.
Students can accurately assess their patient’s chest tube by observing the tidaling and fluctuation of the closed chest drainage system.
3 Skin Tone Offerings
Paired with the easy-to-use Avkin App, you have full control over blood flow, air leaks and respiratory rate.
Optional inserts allow your learners to assess and document their patient’s crepitus during the simulation learning experience.
Don't take our word for it
After the first time using AVKIN wearables for skills training, I felt that my students actually participated in a real clinical experience! I found that my students demonstrated more empathy for patients after using AVKIN that they did not display after using a Simulation Mannequin.
