More than 200 medical professionals trained at 25 hospitals across the UK
Training options include Open abdominal aortic aneurysm, Carotid endarterectomy, Anastomosis sewing stations, Femoral-popliteal bypass and Dialysis access creation.
Please note: This is a "train the trainer program" designed for vascular trainees, vascular surgeons and procurers.
The mannequin simulators help provide:
- A significant improvement in surgical skill
- Reasonably inexpensive and lifelike training possibilities in a low-risk environment.
- Haptic feedback to help you learn what the procedure feels like.
Train and support your team with confidence
A typical workshop
A standard training in a target hospital takes approximately 4 hours using 4 different models, with a maximum of 2 trainees working on each model at any one time. Ideally there is 1 proctor per model available and operating assistants supporting the trainees.
Required from you
The hospital is responsible for arranging all necessary instruments and suture material. Local Getinge staff is responsible for the setting of the program with the surgeon/hospital and is able to customize the agenda according to your needs.
Provided by Getinge
We provide four different simulators including: Carotid endarterectomy, AAA, Peripheral bypass and Dialysis access creation with relevant vascular inlays. Getinge staff help you to set up and run the simulators, and supplies grafts and patch samples.
