Blue Phantom’s PICC vascular access upper arm tissue module is designed for practitioners interested in developing and practising the skills associated with ultrasound-guided PICC line placement as well as teaching users to identify thrombus in the brachial vein.
This hands-on training manikin is intended to assist users in learning to place needles in the brachial and basilic veins. Use alone or with Blue Phantom arm models containing an upper arm cavity (part number p/n BPA200, BPA202 and BPA204).
Using Blue Phantom proprietary simulated human tissue, this very realistic and ultra-durable venous access ultrasound training model is excellent for training clinicians in the psychomotor skills associated with ultrasound-guided venous access procedures as peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) line insertions.
These ultrasound imaging skills include; using ultrasound system controls, transducer positioning and movement, recognition of arterial and venous anatomy, using ultrasound to target the appropriate vessels for cannulation, and using ultrasound to guide venous access procedures in the upper arm.
Ultra-durable design saves you money.
We know that gaining proficiency in using ultrasound requires practice. Our self-healing tissue will allow you to repeatedly perform ultrasound-guided peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) insertion procedure training. You can expect unmatched durability from our tissue and vessels.
This ultrasound training tissue is constructed using Blue Phantom 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.
Gain experience and confidence using ultrasound to guide PICC line insertions.
Each model offers the vascular anatomy of the upper arm including the brachial and basilic veins. Excellent for new users as well as more experienced users who are refining their vascular access procedural skills, the vessels in this ultrasound-guided venous access medical training mannequin can be accessed with needles as well as fluid can be injected into the model to verify needle tip location.
Positive fluid flow in the vessels provides users with immediate feedback when vessels are accessed.
At Blue Phantom, we expend tremendous effort to match the imaging characteristics of real human tissue allowing you to teach and train under optimal conditions. We know that the best simulation training scenarios are requisite on users experiencing the same procedural realism as performing the procedure on patients.
All of our simulation materials match 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 manufacturers ultrasound imaging system configured with the appropriate transducer (recommended ultrasound transducer; high-frequency linear array ultrasound probe 5.0 – 12 MHz).
This ultrasound phantom model is excellent for specialities including emergency medicine, PICC nursing, nursing programs, simulation centres, medical education facilities, radiology departments, and ultrasound manufacturers for ultrasound education and demonstrations.
