- Detailed Description
The idea for the Bonnie Bone Marrow Biopsy Skills Trainer™ was born out of the lack of adequate hands-on training aids and simulators to train clinical staff on the skills needed to perform a posterior iliac crest bone marrow biopsy procedure. By implementing valuable input from clinicians, the Bonnie trainer was developed to provide a realistic simulation. The Bonnie trainer incorporates a life-size scale and anatomy modeled from an average size female pelvis and lower spine. The outer shell provides a soft, tissue-like feel to allow for the palpation of underlying bony landmarks such as the spinous process, and the anterior and posterior iliac crests to facilitate proper biopsy needle placement. To simulate treating patients in lateral decubitus (side lying) positions the Bonnie trainer can be set-up with the included tilt stand or positioned on a table surface to accommodate the prone position. The right and left iliac crest bones are designed to be removable and replaceable and incorporate simulated bone marrow that can be extracted during simulated biopsy procedures to confirm proper technique. The innovative design also includes a replaceable puncture site skin insert to allow for multiple needle punctures to be performed. Inserts are available as replacement parts.
