April 17, 2012

FORT ATKINSON, WI—The 2012-2013 Health Care Educational Materials catalog, featuring Life/form highly specialized skills trainers, manikins, and simulators, is now available from Nasco in Fort Atkinson, WI, and Modesto, CA.

The 196-page catalog includes Life/form products that are manufactured by Nasco, along with many other teaching aids and models of outstanding quality. The major emphasis of the catalog is training with versatile medical procedure simulators that help solve the problem of finding willing “patients” for student practice sessions.

The catalog features these new Life/form products: Ultra Nursing Wound Simulation Kit, Single Breast Exam Trainer, Ostomy Care Training Models, Negative-Pressure Wound Therapy Trainers, Facial Suture Modules, Pediatric Suture Head Kit, Optional Wound Foot for GERi and KERi Nursing Skills Manikins, and much more. The catalog continues to offer the Advanced Injection Arm, Advanced IV Hand, First-Aid Arm, PALS Update Kit, Infant Airway Management Trainers, Intraosseous Infusion Simulator, Basic Buddy and Baby Buddy CPR Manikins, the GERi and KERi Nursing Skills Manikins, Venatech IV Trainer, Patient Education Tracheostomy Care Set, Advanced Sanitary CPR Dog, and BioQuest Inflatable Lung Kits featuring real NASCO-Guard Preserved swine lungs. All Life/form products are handcrafted in the USA.

Other products include the CPARLENE CPR Manikins and Torsos—the most versatile and interchangeable CPR manikins available anywhere. The CRiSis Manikin is a complete resuscitation system with six stations, allowing you to practice different scenarios. The Child CRiSis Manikin and Infant CRiSis Manikin provide complete PALS training capabilities in one manikin. “Airway Larry,” part of Nasco’s line of Airway Management Trainers, features more room to maneuver and a slightly anterior position. These features make it a great trainer for introductory classes, as well as advanced students. In addition, applying cricoid pressure changes the position of the trachea and closes the esophagus, so the Sellick maneuver can be realistically practiced.

The catalog also offers CPR manikins (infant to adult), hospital training manikins, breast self-exam models, reproductive anatomy and gynecological models, anatomical models and replicas, skeletal materials, Medcom/Trainex videotapes/DVDs, anatomical charts, multimedia kits, games, and a complete line of Life/form accessories.
