TruCorps Truman Trauma
Trucorp has designed the Truman Trauma patient simulator for teaching medical professionals the necessary skills for dealing with a range of life threatening trauma situations.

The Truman Trauma System offers an anatomically correct simulated human torso designed for trainees to practice several surgical procedures together with the renowned AirSim head for training the full range of airway management and resuscitation skills.

The Truman Trauma patient simulator also allows the use of replaceable tissue sets that allow each learner a life-like & unique surgical experience.
    The Truman Trauma patient simulator is deal for training in the use of:
  • Chest Tube Insertion
  • Decompression
  • CPR
  • Airway Management
  • Tracheal Deviation


Chest Tube Insertion

    Recognition of
  • correct position
  • surgical incision
  • blunt dissection through chest wall
  • perforation of pleura
  • finger sweep

  • Anatomically accurate chest tube insertion in the 5th intercostal space
  • Cavity for introduction of optional liquids for simulation of hemothorax
  • Realistic feel of all thoracic palpable landmarks
  • Three layered tissue representing skin, fat tissue and muscle for "real feel" surgical incision

Needle Decompression

needle decompression training
  • Option to introduce air to create either right or left tension pneumothorax
  • Replacement tissue sets located in 2nd intercostal space at mid auxiliary line
  • Successful needle insertion will release air with the familiar "hiss" sound

Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation

  • Realistic chest structure allows for easy identification of all anatomical landmarks
  • Full head tilt, chin lift & 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

Truman Cric Simulator
  • Larynx piece with palpable rings for both surgical and needle Cricothyroidotomy and percutaneous tracheostomy
  • Anatomically accurate oral and nasopharyngeal AirSim airway
  • Full use of supraglottic devices
  • Single lung isolation capabilities
  • Endo-tracheal tube insertion with direct laryngoscopy

Tracheal Deviation

  • 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
  • Three layered tissue representing skin, fat tissue and muscle for "real feel" surgical incision
