The perfect accessory to any of our Small Suture Pads, the Tensioning Base acts to hold your pad in place conforming it to a rounded surface to replicate life-like surface tension of an incision. After securing your pad to the base, once cut, the incision will “open up” allowing the student to gain realistic access to the lower muscle and fascia layers for deep suturing. The bottom of the base features a tacky rubber to prevent your Base from sliding across the table mid-suture.
This 3D printed specimen presents the conducting pathways of the respiratory system from the trachea, carina, and complete right and left bronchial trees to the level of the tertiary lobar bronchi. Each set of lobar bronchi have been colour-coded to demonstrate the bronchopulmonary segments of the right and left lobes.
From the right primary bronchus, the secondary bronchus to the upper lobe gives rise to tertiary bronchi to the apical (yellow), anterior (blue) and posterior (brown) segments. The bronchus intermedius divides to supply the middle lobe (lateral [orange] and medial [pink]) segments. The lower lobe bronchus then gives rise to the tertiary bronchi of the superior (yellow) and basal (anterior [purple], posterior [orange], lateral [blue], medial [brown]) segments.
From the left primary bronchus, the secondary bronchus to the upper lobe gives rise to the tertiary bronchi to the apical-posterior (brown), anterior (blue), superior lingual (orange), and inferior lingual (pink) segments. The lower lobe bronchus gives rise to the tertiary bronchi to the superior (yellow) and basal (anteromedial [brown], lateral [orange], posterior [blue]) segments
