Vascular Access - Chester Chest

Lifelike model of human torso with detachable right arm designed for the insertion care, and removal of common long-term vascular access routes.

Overview

Chester Chest - with New Advanced Arm, which can be ordered separately to upgrade your existing Chester Chest.

The New Advanced Arm has a greater degree of rotation and extension than our previous arm, just as you would experience on a patient when accessing the PICC or catheter sites can be used to practice cleansing, application of dressings and securement devices, fluid infusion and withdrawal.

  • The New Advanced Arm part #VT-2386 has a dual lumen 5FR PICC (Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter) exiting the basilic vein from the inner bicep area, which is currently the preferred placement.
  • The basilic vein is slightly raised for easy identification. Posterior to the PICC insertion site is a recessed area for the placement of a peripheral port. (Optional port shown but not included - see part VT-417 to order).
  • The base of the recessed area is made of soft material that permits the port to “float” when accessed. This area is covered with a removable tissue-like flap which, when placed over the port, provides the realistic feel of palpating and accessing.
  • An additional feature of the new arm is a pre-positioned 20g IV catheter in the forearm.

Chester Chest can be used in either an upright or supine position.
