Open-chest Model (TOM)

TOM is the world’s first high fidelity patented emergency resternotomy model. TOM has been specifically designed to facilitate high fidelity simulation of emergency resternotomy for cardiac deterioration/arrest following cardiac surgery. Emergency resternotomy is an integral and time-critical part of resuscitation following cardiac surgery that requires efficient teamworking between all members of the multi-disciplinary team.

Designed and developed by clinicians and educators, TOM is the only model on the market able to replicate the level of realism required to engage the entire multi-disciplinary healthcare team in emergency resternotomy. TOM is ideal for team training within the cardiac intensive care and operating theatre setting, and has the capability to simulate a realistic tamponade or catastrophic haemorrhage.
