For use with our Spinal Epidural and Lumbar Puncture training models (P/N BPLP2101).
The accessory replacement module is excellent in its realism, quality and durability offering users the ability to utilise ultrasound or blind insertion techniques while performing lumbar puncture or lumbar epidural procedures to access the epidural or subarachnoid space.
The accessory spinal insert provides more adipose tissue disallowing the palpation of the spinal processes. This module is superb for needle access as well as the placement of catheters.
Extremely realistic and self-healing design offers you superb training with a low cost of ownership.
The lumbar epidural and lumbar puncture replacement tissue module is superb in its realism and contains the entire lumbar spine, skin tissue, ligamentum flavum, epidural space, dura, subarachnoid membrane, and subarachnoid cistern containing cerebral spinal fluid (CSF).
Users can inject local anaesthetics, introduce the needle to the epidural space and/or subarachnoid space (performs “spinal taps”), thread catheters, infuse simulated anaesthetics, and obtain manometer measurements – all while experiencing a realistic tissue response including the pop encountered when traversing the ligamentum flavum, loss of resistance when entering the epidural space, and cerebral spinal fluid flow when the spinal cistern is accurately accessed.
The cerebral spinal fluid pressures can be easily increased in order to simulate pathological scenarios.
The lumbar epidural and lumbar puncture insert is designed using Blue Phantom ultra-durable and self-healing tissue. Our durability provides you with optimal training at a low cost of ownership.
Use any ultrasound system and never have to adjust the system settings unrealistically or have problems imaging the model’s anatomy.
Our patented tissue is extremely realistic – both imaging and feeling like real human tissue. Blue Phantom synthetic tissue matches the acoustic characteristics of real human tissue so when you use your ultrasound system on our training models, you experience the same quality you expect from imaging patients in a clinical environment. Blue Phantom obese lumbar epidural and lumbar puncture replacement insert will perform well using any ultrasound imaging system configured with the appropriate ultrasound transducer.
