Expanding Hematoma

Duration Duration: 5 Minutes
Free Open Access Materials > Healthcare Simulation, Scenario Development

In this video, we create a model of post-surgical incision with an expanding hematoma which can be decompressed and which bleeds when opened. This model is useful for simulating common emergency situations in the post-op ward, where the patient’s airway is at risk.

Mad Simulationist’s Lab is a video series where simulation technicians from the Center for Medical Simulation create some of their most asked for technology on camera, with simple recipes to help viewers make their own in their home institutions. These short videos will give you every component and every step you need to create some incredible high-fidelity simulations.
