Blue Phantom’s TAP block ultrasound training model assists users in the development of the psychomotor skills associated with performing ultrasound guided transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block regional anesthesia procedures. Built on Blue Phantom’s superb realism and unmatched durability of our synthetic tissues, our TAP block ultrasound training model assists users in the identification, localization, and targeting of structures utilized in performing this regional anesthesia procedure. These structures include the cutaneous and subcutaneous tissues, external oblique muscle, internal oblique muscle, transversus abdominis muscles, and the peritoneum. Users are able to simulate the entire TAP block procedure using this highly realistic and durable ultrasound training model. With the goal of depositing local anesthetic in the plane between the internal oblique and transversus abdominis muscles, users can inject simulated anesthetic into the model repeatedly as the fluid is automatically expelled.
We know that gaining proficiency in using ultrasound requires practice. Our self healing tissue will allow you to repeatedly perform TAP block procedures without giving second thought to wearing out the tissue or calculating the cost per cannulation. This model is excellent for teaching a variety of skills including; using ultrasound system controls, transducer positioning and movement, recognition of the subcutaneous tissues, external oblique muscle, internal oblique muscle, transversus abdominis muscles, and the peritoneal border, using ultrasound to target the appropriate region for depositing local anesthetics, guiding the needle to the intended region, and visualizing the infusion of anesthetics.
Excellent training platform for clinicians learning to perform TAP block regional anesthesia procedures.
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 ultrasound imaging system configured with the appropriate transducer. This ultrasound phantom model is excellent for specialties including anesthesiology (anaesthesiology), emergency medicine, surgery, surgical training programs, ultrasound training programs, simulation centers, surgical skills centers, medical education facilities, and ultrasound manufacturers for ultrasound education and demonstrations.
