General Instructions for Use

Practice and demonstrate tying knots, stapling and placement of staples, use of surgical glue, suturing deep tissue (placement and closure), and suturing subcutaneous tissue (placement and closure). With a sharp scalpel, wounds can be cut at any desired depth or location on the pad. 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 apply Nasco Cleaner to 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. The red pad material contains oils that may damage some surfaces. Use and store the suture pad in the tray provided. Leaving sutures in place for long periods of time will cause impressions in the soft skin. These are temporary and will not affect the usefulness of the pad. All kits containing instruments are to be used for trainer purposes only. Instruments are not sterile and not intended for human use.
