This silicone neck trainer simulates a neck wound after the thyroid gland has been removed. To start the training the wounds in membrane and skin should be sutured closed. The hematoma under the wound should be filled with air or blood depending on the scenario of training. This model can be used on a manikin or standard patient. Just wrap it around the neck and fasten at the back with the Velcro. Hide the bottom edges with pyjama's or surgical gown.
This model is meant for suturing only. When spotting the hematoma the sutures should be removed and the bleeding located. Then the blood can be retracted again and the neck sutured back again. This is the simple training with suturing only.
More advanced is to actually cut the hematoma inside the neck to find and close the bleeding point. Mind that if the hematoma is opened to bleed, it has to be repaired before the neck model can be used again. Repairing is easy with the silicone included.
The model consists of 4 layers:
