Vital Sim and chest tubw

Want to have chest tube lab. Does Vital Sim Anne/Kelly have chest tube insertion sites? I have done this easily with high-fidelity but not with Vital Sim. Any assistance is appreciated.

Nursing Anne VitalSim has a loose chest covering so I was able to place the chest tube under the chest skin(clamped) with an appropriate dressing and a chest tube system with a water seal and suction.  Not perfect function but you can try it to see what you might be able to do with it.
