Constructed utilising the innovative LifeCast™ modelling approach, the external landmarks were cast from a live human while the internal anatomy is based on digital human files.
This ultra-durable ultrasound simulator incorporates all of the anatomy required to teach, learn and practise the skills associated with central line placement and was designed for both ultrasound-guided and blind insertion procedural training.
The self-healing tissue withstands tremendous use, minimising the need for replacement parts. Blue Phantom’s new upper torso central venous catheter model offers clinicians the most life-like training environment at a low cost of ownership.
Perform complete central line placements of the internal jugular and subclavian vein - including needles, guidewires, dilation and threading of catheters.
Blue Phantom’s patented SimulexUS™ simulated tissue matches the acoustic properties of human tissue which allows the most realistic image quality with any ultrasound system.
Use your ultrasound scanner without having to adjust the ultrasound system controls unrealistically. Each training model is designed to offer users of all levels superior realism, reliability and durability. Teach, practise and learn central line placement repeatedly without the need to worry about cost per use.
This next-generation ultrasound simulator contains vascular anatomy including the internal jugular vein (IJ), brachiocephalic vein, subclavian vein, axillary vein, carotid artery, subclavian artery and axillary artery.
Multiple points of access include internal jugular (IJ), subclavian, infraclavicular and supraclavicular approach as well as access via the axillary vein. The simulated superior vena cava, right atrium and right ventricle offer users the ability to fully thread guidewires, dilators and catheters without resistance.
This adult male upper torso central line mannequin also includes internal landmarks such as the trachea, suprasternal notch, manubrium and clavicle. Clinicians can utilise traditional external landmarks for blind central line placement or use ultrasound to guide the central venous access procedure.
Arterial pulsation can be simulated via the manual hand bulb or optional automated pump that allows users to differentiate between arteries and veins. Clinicians can visualise the pulsatility of the arteries via ultrasound for positive identification of the targeted vessel.
The central line manikin features compressible veins using mild pressure while the arteries remain uncompressed. The venous system is prefilled with blue fluid and the arterial system is prefilled with red fluid.
Positive fluid flow in the vessels provides users with immediate feedback when the vessels are accessed. Users can positively identify the targeted vessels and receive immediate feedback as to successful or unsuccessful vascular access.
Venous and arterial fluid removed during central venous catheter procedures can be easily refilled by using the provided QuickFill™ ports or and I.V. bag to continually refill the vessels during training.
