Basic surgical skill base
The Basic surgical skills base is the platform for the delivery of all BSS (Basic Surgical Skills) courses.
The Basic surgical skills base is the platform for delivery of all BSS (Basic Surgical Skills) courses. The BSS base has been designed alongside senior surgical educators and the Inovus clinicians in order to offer a platform that is specifically aimed at the skills taught in Basic Surgical Skills courses. With direct input from practicing clinicians, Inovus was able to develop highly realistic incision and suturing pads that offer an affordable, replaceable, and hassle free alternative to use of animal by products in the delivery of BSS courses.
The Inovus BSS platform allows the following skills to be practiced:
- Surgical hand ties
- Surgical instrument ties
- Tying at depth
- Basic skin incision
- I&D of abscess
- Drainage of cyst
- Wide local excision of skin lesion with wound closure (WLE)
The incision and suturing pad is reusable and will tolerate multiple uses before replacement is needed. The I&D/cyst/WLE pad is single use and requires replacement.
