Blue Phantom's mid-scapular thoracentesis ultrasound training model is specifically designed for ultrasound-guided thoracentesis procedures. This ultrasound training phantom aids users in developing and practising the skills associated with a mid scapulary approach to ultrasound-guided thoracentesis procedures.
This model is excellent for assisting clinicians in gaining proficiency in using ultrasound to identify and guide needle and small gauge catheter insertions in a patient with pleural effusions for diagnostic and/or therapeutic purposes.
The model is of a supine adult male and extends from the upper buttocks to the lower neck. Positioned in the mid scapulary line, the ultrasound tissue insert contains chest wall superficial tissue, 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th ribs and intercostal spaces, pleural cavity with lung and atelectatic lung, diaphragm, and superior spleen. The pleural fluid collections allow users to develop and refine their ultrasound-guided thoracentesis skills. This model is extremely realistic and is self-healing offering you superb training with a low cost of ownership.
The ultrasound tissue insert offers extremely realistic sonographic imaging characteristics is designed for guiding the placement of needles and small catheters (18-21 gauge and associated catheter kits). Blue Phantom simulated human tissue is very realistic and ultra-durable; excellent for repeated training in skills associated with ultrasound-guided thoracentesis procedures. Positive fluid flow offers users feedback when pleural effusions are accurately accessed. The fluid is easily refilled using a quick fill luer lock or can be connected to an I.V. reservoir for continuous fluid delivery. Users can also learn to avoid accessory structures such as the spleen, diaphragm and lung.
The extremely realistic and self-healing design offers you superb training with a low cost of ownership.
Ultrasound imaging skills include; using ultrasound system controls, transducer positioning and movement, recognition of thoracic anatomy, lung, diaphragm, anterior spleen and pleural effusions, using ultrasound to target the appropriate fluid pockets for needle guidance, and performing an ultrasound-guided thoracentesis procedure.
Our self-healing tissue will allow you to repeatedly perform ultrasound-guided thoracentesis procedures without giving a second thought to wearing out the tissue or calculating the cost per cannulation.
You can expect unmatched durability from our tissue. This ultrasound training mannequin is constructed using Blue Phantom’s patented ultra-durable tissue and is extremely realistic in ultrasound imaging characteristics and feels like real human tissue. Our self-healing tissue will withstand tremendous use and will save you money by dramatically reducing the necessity for purchasing replacement parts.
Constructed using Blue Phantom simulated tissue which 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.
This medical simulation trainer will perform well using any ultrasound imaging system configured with the appropriate thoracentesis transducer. This ultrasound phantom model is excellent for specialities including emergency medicine, critical care medicine, surgery, surgical training programs, ultrasound training programs, simulation centres, surgical skills centres, medical education facilities, and ultrasound manufacturers for ultrasound education and demonstrations.
