Vascular Access - Chester Chest



Chester Chest - with New Advanced Arm (arm can be ordered separately to upgrade your existing Chester Chest). 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. 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. Chester Chest can be used in either an upright or supine position.

Throughout the history of medicine, clinical learning has been based on imitating the actions of others. Medical students are expected to learn complex medical tasks by watching other clinicians perform that task. This is known as the “see one, do one” approach, or the apprenticeship model. Certainly, the “see one, do one” approach to learning will continue to have its place. In many cases, however, experts within healthcare see simulation as an alternative, or at least a stepping-stone, between classroom learning and clinical practice. This means change.
