Emergency care doctors recommend this relatively simple procedure to release air pressure from the thorax of a trauma victim.
This model will allow emergency medical personnel to develop the needed skills before administering to a live patient.
This model accepts needle thoracotomy in the second intercostal space in the midclavicular line, or the fifth intercostal space in the mid-axillary line.
