The Truman Trauma is the ideal all-in-one trainer for teaching the skills necessary in dealing with a number of life threatening trauma situations.

Building on the success of the highly anatomically accurate AirSim airway management trainers, the Truman Trauma incorporates this into a simulated human torso for training in a wide range of airway management and resuscitation skills:

  • Chest Tube Insertion
  • Needle Decompression
  • CPR
  • Airway management
  • Tension Pneumothorax


  • Replaceable tissues which help provide each trainee a lifelike and unique surgical experience
  • Chest tube insertion
    • Recognition of correct position, surgical incision, blunt dissection through chest wall, perforation of pleura, and finger sweep
    • Anatomically accurate chest tube insertion in the 5th intercostal space
    • Realistic feel of all thoracic palpable landmarks
    • Cavity for introduction of optional liquids for simulation of haemothorax or pleural effusion.
    • Optional economy or premium chest tube inserts to demonstrate incision. The economy option consists of one solid layer and is a low cost solution for training e.g. for use in ATLS courses. The premium product has a three layered tissue representing skin, fat tissue and muscle for “real feel” surgical incision
  • Needle Decompression of tension pneumothorax:
    • Option to introduce air to create either right or left tension pneumothorax
    • Needle decompression replacement tissue sets located in 2nd intercostal space at mid clavicular line
    • Successful needle insertion will release air with the familiar “hiss” sound
    • Durable replacement tissue which will facilitate up to 30 needle incisions
  • Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR):
    • Realistic chest structure allows for easy identification of all anatomical landmarks
    • Full head tilt, chin lift and jaw thrust capabilities to allow the students to prepare the airway prior to resuscitation
    • Lifelike recoil during compressions
    • Successful ventilation will provide an accurate representation of chest rise and fall
  • Airway Management Skills:
    • Anatomically accurate oral and naso pharyngeal AirSim airway
    • Larynx piece with palpable rings for both surgical and needle Cricothyroidotomy and percutaneous tracheostomy.
    • Full use of supraglottic devices
    • Endo-tracheal tube insertion with direct laryngoscopy
    • Effective bag mask ventilation
    • Single lung isolation capabilities
    • Combi tube insertion
    • Naso gastric tube insertion techniques
  • Identification of tracheal deviation and jugular vein distension which are warning signs attributed to tension pneumothorax:
    • Jugular vein distension can be observed on either the left or right side of the neck during tension pneumothorax
    • Tracheal deviation can be palpitated and clearly visible moving away from the side that has tension pneumothorax
    • Both features revert back to neutral upon successful needle decompression
