This torso allows an instructor to teach and a student to practice properly inserting a needle to permit built up air pressure to escape the thorax. Emergency care doctorsrecommend this relatively simple procedure to release air pressure from the thorax of a trauma victim. This model will allow emergency medical personnel to develop the needed skills before administering to a live patient. This model accepts needle thoracotomy in the second intercostal space in the midclavicular line, or the fifth intercostal space in the midaxillary line. The model is complete with replaceable lungs, a rib cage, and a soft, lifelike replaceable skin. Unit can be punctured 75 to 100 times before replacement is necessary.
