Use to enhance training of intraosseous infusion procedures using B.I.G.™ and EZ-IO™ devices or almost any other intraosseous infusion devices available. The leg is fluid capable and a blood source is accessible through the injection site. Includes palpable landmarks, replaceable bones and skin, and a pressurized system to allow aspiration of fluid.
Included with the simulator:
- 10 replaceable simulated bones
- 4 replaceable skin pads
- Simulated blood
- Lubricating jelly
- I/O needle
- Syringe with tubing
- Five-year warranty
- To prepare blood mixture:
- Combine 11/4 cups of tap water with the artificial blood powder in the pint bottle provided. Add one full tube of lubricating jelly (measuring cup not included).
- Shake vigorously for 30 seconds or until contents are mixed completely.
- Fill the 60 cc syringe with blood mixture by placing the tubing end of the syringe into the pint bottle and drawing the mixture into the syringe.
- The free end of the tubing goes through the hole on the outside of the adult I/O simulator.
- Attach the free end of the tubing onto swivel end of the simulated bone. Use the supplied lubricant as needed to ease the tubing assembly onto the swivel end of the simulated bone.
- Place the simulated bone inside of the Adult I/O Simulator, making sure the swivel end is pointing toward the hole.
- Use the supplied lubricant as needed on the outside of the simulated bone to ease the bone into the Adult I/O Simulator.
- Place the skin pad on top of the simulated bone. Adjust the skin pad as needed for a snug fit over the simulated bone.
CHARGING THE BONES
- Press the 60 cc syringe to flow the blood mixture into the simulated bone.
- Make your first needle insertion into the simulated bone and remove the needle stylus. Proper insertion and pressure applied to the syringe will allow the blood mixture to flow through the tubing and fill the bone. When you observe the blood mixture flowing up through the needle, the simulated bone is completely charged.
- Each new simulated bone will need to be charged in this same manner. Correct subsequent insertions will produce an immediate flow of blood mixture through the needle.
- Provided wax should be used after each puncture to seal the hole in the simulated bone, preventing leaks.
USING THE WAX PIECE
- Carefully pull back enough on the 60 cc syringe to reduce pressure and prevent blood from exiting puncture site.
- Remove the bone from the leg and wipe clean.
- Remove a small piece of wax and work with your fingers until soft.
- Rub the softened piece of wax back and forth across the bone holes until they are sealed.
- A thin layer of wax left on the bone surface over the holes will help in sealing.
- The bones have been designed so that all four sides can sustain multiple punctures. When necessary, rotate the bone 1/4 turn and replace in the leg. The bone structure may be punctured until four sides have been completely punctured, then the bone may be discarded.
