A simulator for teaching physical assessment, this Blood Pressure Simulator helps resolve the uncertainties common in teaching students to take blood pressure.
Improved features include:
Redesigned and durable control unit
Simple calibration procedure
Palpable radial pulse
Optional external speakers
This lifelike simulator allows the presetting of values for both systolic and diastolic pressures.
Provides an excellent means to practice listening to and distinguishing blood pressure sounds prior to actual clinical experience. It is possible to audibly discern the five Korotkoff phases. Many times when working with a live subject, pressures are difficult to auscultate, making accurate evaluation of student proficiency almost impossible, and undermining the student's self-confidence. With this realistic unit, the student can find the preset results and the instructor can unfailingly know if the student has performed the procedure accurately. The electronically generated sounds are digitally recorded.
With this realistic unit, the student can find the preset results and the instructor can unfailingly know if the student has performed the procedure accurately. The electronically generated sounds are digitally recorded from MEDCOM/TRAINEX videotapes. Any combination of systolic and diastolic pressures can be dialed into the control unit, and the instructor can control the pulse rate and volume level. An auscultatory gap can be added if desired.
Control Unit Allows Instructor to:
Select systolic and diastolic settings
Adjust pulse rate
Turn ausculatory gap on or off
Easily calibrate unit for use with any sphygmomanometer
