Pocket T.O.M.™ (Tracheostomy Observation Model)


"I have been spending lots of time with Pocket TOM! It really is a wonderful tool for education. I just took it with me this a.m. to educate a 32 year lady with myasthenia exacerbation who required a trach. She has felt overwhelmed and nervous about the trach, swallowing, PMV, etc. Felt much better after education session with our buddy TOM."

Pocket TOM is a more portable version of our standard Tracheostomy T.O.M. model. It is small enough to fit in a coat pocket, but big enough to demonstrate tracheostomy placement and possible complications.
