ABOUT AWESIM MEDICAL

AWESIM stands for Airway Education Simulation.  We are interested in improving medical education through simulation. Our goal is to identify areas where awesome medical models are not yet available in order to provide a more meaningful learning experience. Each model is created from cadaveric specimens and clinically obtained cross sectional scans.  

 

Three-dimensional molds are created for each tissue type and different polymers are color-matched to real tissue intraoperatively.  Tensile strength, incision, dissection, retraction and suture pull-through mimick real tissue.  Please see below to find out more about how these models are being used.

REPLACEABLE CARTRIDGES

We recognize that certain procedures require only a portion of the model to be used.  To keep your costs down and to minimize waste, we have replaceable inserts.

ENDOSCOPIC LARYNGEAL PROCEDURES

Anatomically accurate inside and out so you can also perform endoscopic procedures such as laryngeal cleft repair, and bronchoscopy.

PARENT EDUCATION FOR TRACHEOSTOMY CARE

FLEXIBLE NASOPHARYNGOSCOPY

FLEXIBLE BRONCHOSCOPY

Teach parents how to safely change, suction and care for their child's tracheostomy tube.  Allow them to feel more comfortable with tracheostomy care, and shorten their child's length of stay in hospital!  This model also allows for practicing flexible nasopharyngoscopy and bronchoscopy.  

TEACHING ANATOMY

With medical schools and undergraduate courses moving away from cadaveric dissection, these models offer a realistic learning experience with a model that looks, feels, cuts and sutures the same as real tissue.

FIRST RESPONDERS

MILITARY MEDICS

ANESTHESIOLOGISTS

EMERGENCY PHYSICIANS

Learn or practice life-saving techniques such as cricothyroidotomy, percutaneous tracheotomy, or open surgical tracheotomy.

OTOLARYNGOLOGISTS - HEAD & NECK SURGEONS

GENERAL SURGEONS

THORACIC SURGEONS

CARDIOVASCULAR SURGEONS

Learn or practice tracheotomy and open airway surgical procedures on a clean model at your own leisure.  Can be used for cricoid split, thyroid ala cartilage graft, anterior and posterior costal cartilage graft laryngotracheoplasty, cricotracheal resection, tracheal resection and slide tracheoplasty.

RIB GRAFTS FOR CARVING

Our synthetic ribs look, feel, carve and can be sutured just like real ribs.  Practice carving them for airway surgery, ear surgery, rhinoplasty, or any other procedure you can think of. 

CUSTOMIZED MODELS

We can customize anatomical models for you.  Please contact us to discuss your needs!
