Our newest member of the Avkin lineup, 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 movement of the patient and practice communication skills. In addition to having the ability to hook up to a pleurovac, the Avthor provides the highest 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.
3 Skin Tone Offerings
Optional inserts allow you to replicate crepitus during your 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.
