 Regional Anesthesia Ultrasound Central Line Training Model simulation equipment

The Regional Anesthesia Ultrasound Central Line Training Model, manufactured by Blue Phantom, uses ultrasound for central line placement and peripheral nerve blocks. This model incorporates all of the anatomy required for both ultrasound guided and blind insertion central line procedural training.

Features and Benefits:

  • Realistic external and internal anatomy for ultrasound guided or blind insertion training
  • Anatomically correct; cast from a live patient and constructed from a digital human file
  • Regional anesthesia anatomy includes: supraclavicular nerves, interscalene nerves, infraclavicular nerves and enhanced access of the posterior interscalene nerve block approach
  • The brachial plexus can be injected with simulated anesthetics to verify needle tip location and to practice the entire anesthesia procedure
  • Venous anatomy includes: internal jugular vein (IJ), brachiocephalic vein, subclavian vein and axillary vein
  • Arterial anatomy includes: carotid artery, subclavian artery and axillary artery
  • Simulated superior vena cava, right atrium and right ventricle allows clinicians to fully thread guidewires and catheters without resistance
  • Internal landmarks for superior realism include the trachea, manubrium and clavicle
  • Veins are compressible using mild pressure while the arteries remain uncompressed
  • Simulated tissue matches the acoustic properties of real human tissue
  • Arterial pulsations simulated using provided hand bulb or optional integrated automated pumping system
  • Positive fluid flow in the vessels; model is prefilled with red fluid in the arteries and blue fluid in the veins
  • Self-healing tissue offers tremendous durability
