When would you use Pitting Oedema Pads in Healthcare Simulation?
Common causes of swollen ankles, feet and legs
Swelling in the ankles, feet and legs is often caused by a build-up of fluid in these areas, called oedema.
Oedema is usually caused by:
- standing or sitting in the same position for too long
- eating too much salty food
- being overweight
- being pregnant – read about swollen ankles, feet and fingers in pregnancy
- taking certain medicines – such as some blood pressure medicines, contraceptive pills, antidepressants or steroids
Oedema can also be caused by:
- an injury – such as a strain or sprain
- an insect bite or sting
- problems with your kidneys, liver or heart
- a blood clot
- an infection
Pitting oedema is a general problem caused by a variety of issues such as:
- heart valve problems
- low protein levels
- deep venous thrombosis (DVT) — blood clots, usually in the legs
- severe lung disease
- congestive heart failure
- venous insufficiency
- liver disease
- kidney failure
- administration of intravenous fluids
- hot weather
Every CAE Medicor product features hyper-realistic MedicSkin®. The innovative material offers a high level of durability, as well as being hypoallergenic, resistant to mould, and easy to clean and maintain. With MedicSkin®, needle tracks disappear with minimal damage.
Choose skin colour
All MedicSkin® products are available in a choice of 3 colours. This allows users to adapt the products to the colour of their manikins and task trainers, or use the products with standardised patients of varying ethnicities.
MedicSkin® products are injectable, meaning the user can inject air into them. If specified, you can inject liquid into task trainers, a special sponge inside the product absorbs the liquid until saturation, easily drain it and rinse with distilled water to avoid mould growth.
Task trainers with MedicSkin® are ultrasound scannable for sonography simulation. For example, the IV arm can be used for training in ultrasound-guided intravenous (IV) access. (Showing the user the needle or catheter).
