Thoracentesis and Thoracostomy Ultrasound Model


  • Ultrasound guided thoracentesis and blind insertion chest tube thoracostomy training model
  • Excellent for training clinicians in the psycho-motor skills associated with ultrasound guided thoracentesis and thoracostomy procedures
  • User selected positioning; can be arranged in a variety of positions allowing users to learn how to perform procedures in the upright, supine, and right lateral decubitus positions
  • Contains an ultrasound tissue module and two non-ultrasound chest portals (anterior and lateral positions)
