The Chester Chest trainer is a portable, life-like model of a human torso with a detachable right arm, for training in common types of long term vascular access devices (VAD): implanted ports, central venous catheters (CVC) and peripherally inserted central catheters (PICC).

  • The right chest area of Chester Chest has a 9.6Fr tunneled central catheter that is visible up to the clavicle.
  • The Dacron cuff on this catheter is also discernable
  • The external jugular vein is slightly raised with an opening to attach your own triple lumen catheter and there is also an opening in the upper chest area for placement of a subclavian catheter
  • Included with this model is a real port that makes it possible to simulate accessing the following IVAD placements: 'normal'¶, 'tipping'¶, 'wandering'¶ or deeply placed in the left chest area. Successful access is confirmed by a 'blood'¶ return.
  • Fluid can be infused and 'blood'¶ withdrawn from all the lines.
  • Now supplied with an updated arm 2388 Standard Arm for Chester Chest that is positioned with a greater degree of rotation and extension than the previous arm.
  • The arm has a dual 5Fr PICC exiting the basilic vein from the inner bicep area and an IV site.

Chester Chest is a great tool for the teaching and assessment of fluid infusion, 'blood'¶ withdrawal and dressing securement techniques associated with central access devices. Chester Chest can be used in either an upright or supine position.
