1. Introduction

Welcome to the Simuvasc abdominal aorta surgery simulator! This device is designed to provide a practical and realistic experience in performing abdominal aorta surgeries. This manual will guide you through the assembly, use, maintenance, and troubleshooting of the simulator.


2. Simulator Description

The abdominal aorta surgery simulator allows professionals to practice surgical techniques in a safe environment. This simulator includes a box-type torso with a simulated abdominal aorta as a consumable, with inlet and flow connection (optional).


3. Simulator Components

  • Abdominal Torso:
    • Main structure of the simulator consisting of two parts: box-type support with flow connection and chest/skin cover.
    • Interior: Support for AAA Inlays with magnets and flow connection.
  • Simulated Abdominal Aorta (AAA Inlay):
    • Model of the abdominal aorta designed to be replaced after each use with magnets.
  • Surgical Instrument Kit:
    • Basic surgical instrument set necessary for performing abdominal aorta surgery.

4. Assembly and Preparation

Assembly:

  • Place the torso on a stable surface.
  • Remove the chest/skin cover and extract the AAA Inlay consumable through the oval hole.
  • Connect the new AAA Inlay consumable to the torso following the provided instructions.

Connection and Placement of AAA Inlay Consumable:

  • Remove the previous consumable.
  • Disconnect the consumable from the inner support connection by pressing the connector button.
  • Remove the black clamp securing the flow connector.
  • Replace it with the new consumable.
  • Insert the flow connector and secure it with the black clamp.
  • Insert the consumable into the box’s interior support with magnets and flow connection through the box’s oval.
  • Ensure all connections are secure.
  • Put the chest/skin cover.
  • Place the chest/skin cover.

You may now begin the procedure.

Cleaning:

  • Clean all instruments and simulator components after each use.
  • Keep them in a dry place.

Storage:

  • Store the simulator and all its components in a dry and secure place.
  • Avoid exposure to extreme temperatures and humidity.

6. Common Troubleshooting

  • Issue: The circulation system is not working.
    • Solution: Check the connections and ensure the system is properly connected.
  • Issue: The AAA Inlay does not fit correctly.
    • Solution: You can trim it to the desired length by cutting at the flow connector part.
