New features have been added to Rufus!
Painstakingly constructed, Rufus Bandaging Mannikin is an all-rounded tool to the critical care student.
This full-sized model is ideal for practical lab skills and practicing advanced bandaging techniques. Apart from administering first aid, the mannikin can be used to practice mouth-to-snout resuscitation. The left knee, elbow, carpal and hock joints are capable of 90° movements. Shoulder and hip joints also have the flexibility of 90° rotation.
With the new features, users can now also practice the Velpeau Sling on the right forelimb and the Ehmer Sling on the right hind leg.
In short, these are just some of the bandaging techniques users can practice on Rufus:
90-90- flexion sling
Robert Jones bandage
Limb bandage using stirrups
Padded hip bandage
Head and Ear bandage
Rufus comes with five disposable lungs, a brush, and carrying case with kneeling pad.
Special thanks to Dr Leslie Sklena at the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA for beautifully bandaging Rufus in these photos. Look out for our bandaging videos by Dr Sklena on YouTube soon. 'Like' us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/rescuecritters to be updated.
