ABOUT THE SIMULATOR
This practice and demonstration suture trainer pad should be considered disposable, but with proper care and treatment, it will serve its purpose for a long period of time. The lifelike material can be easily cut and stitched. With a sharp scalpel, wounds can be cut at any desired depth or location on the pad. The pad is easy to remove. Each cut can be repeatedly sutured until skin at any one site becomes so heavily perforated that it will no longer support more suturing.

CARE OF THE SIMULATOR
Do not use providone-iodine prep solutions. These solutions will indelibly stain the pad. Normal soil accumulated on the surface of the simulator can be removed with mild soap and lukewarm water. Use Nasco Cleaner (LF09919U) to remove stubborn stains from simulator. Simply spray soiled area and wipe clean with soft cloth or paper towels. When not in continuous use, it is recommended to store the simulator in the soft storage case furnished, or cover it with a cloth.
Solvents or corrosive materials will damage the simulator. Never place simulator on any kind of paper or plastic. These materials will transfer stains that are not removable. Ballpoint pens will also make indelible stains.
