Abstract

Use of simulation for nursing skill development can provide effective learning while minimizing risk to patients. However, simulators are expensive and portability can be limited. The author describes how to create a low-cost model for simulating tracheotomy suctioning and care. Construction is simple, with estimated materials cost for making the model less than $100.
