Maternal Model - Amnio/Cordo/Laparoscopic Sim
This model is no longer available, as it has been replaced by the Universal Maternal Abdomen (click here)
(Please contact me directly for more information regarding this model)
This life-like maternal model is durably constructed from plastic and silicone rubber. It is multi-functional, as it is designed to accommodate a variety of fetal sizes and prenatal procedures (amniocentesis, cordocentesis, and laparoscopic procedures). This model can be used with ultrasound to observe the interior cavity of the amniotic sac*. The removable clear plastic access hatch facilitates the repositioning of the fetus and/or placenta. This hatch also provides a unique perspective of the interior for observation of clinical procedures.
The amniotic cavity is designed to be refilled with tap water. The silicone rubber abdomen can be punctured with a variety of needle sizes up to 20ga and the abdominal surface will self-seal (please note that punctures produced by large scopes may create a leak after the scope is removed).
