About the Simulator

This practice and demonstration suture arm should be considered disposable, but with proper care and treatment, it will serve its purpose for a long period of time.

The three “wounds” provided should be considered only samples of what can be done. With a sharp scalpel, additional “wounds” can be cut at any desired depth or location. Each can be repeatedly sutured until the skin at any one site becomes so heavily perforated that it will no longer support more suturing.

The “wounds” can be bandaged with most standard adhesive bandages. Residual adhesive can be removed with Glue-Off (LF01023U).

Care of Simulator

Do not use providone-iodine prep solutions. These solutions will indelibly stain the arm.

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 a soft cloth or paper towels.

When not in continuous use, it is recommended to store the simulator in the storage box furnished, or cover it with a cloth or sheet of plastic.

Cautions

Solvents or corrosive materials will damage the simulator. Never place simulator on any kind of printed paper or plastic. These materials will transfer indelible stains. Ball-point pens will also make indelible stains.
