What Is Oedema?

Oedema is caused by the abnormal accumulation of fluid within the interstitial spaces of tissue causing swelling and is most common in areas of the body such as the ankles, legs and feet. Pressing on the surface of the skin may leave an indentation that doesn’t immediately rebound once the pressure is released. This indentation is known as pitting oedema which is graded by the depth of the indentation.

How Does This Oedema Trainer Work?

Specially designed to help medical students identify pitting oedema, this Simulaids Pitting Oedema Trainer uses life-like simulated tissue to demonstrate the stages of swelling from 1+ through to 4+:

  • Stage 1+ – Mild pitting, slight indentation (2mm), no perceptible swelling of area
  • Stage 2+ – Moderate pitting, indentation (4mm) subsides rapidly
  • Stage 3+ – Deep pitting, indentation (6mm) remains for a short time, area looks swollen
  • Stage 4+ – Very deep pitting, indentation (8mm) lasts a long time, area is very swollen
