Life/form® Blood Pressure Simulator
The Life/form® Blood Pressure Simulator teaches physical assessment and helps resolve the uncertainties common in teaching students to take blood pressure.
This lifelike simulator allows the presetting of values for both systolic and diastolic pressures. Provides an excellent means to practice listening to and distinguishing blood pressure sounds prior to actual clinical experience.
It is possible to audibly discern the five Korotkoff phases. Many times when working with a live patient, pressures are difficult to auscultate, making accurate evaluation of student proficiency almost impossible, and undermining the students self-confidence. With this realistic unit, the student can find the preset results and the instructor can unfailingly know if the student has performed the procedure accurately.
The electronically generated sounds are digitally recorded. Includes the Life/form® Blood Pressure Arm with embedded speaker, sphygmomanometer, electronic control unit (six AA batteries), instruction manual, and hard carry case.
No special stethoscope required (stethoscope not included). For auscultatory blood pressure only. .
