Blue Phantom’s PICC vascular access upper arm tissue with brachial thrombus is designed for users interested in developing and practicing 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 mannequin is intended to assist users in learning to place needles in the brachial and basilic veins using modified Seldinger techniques and learn to identify venous thrombosis in the upper arm as a source of resistance to threading guidewires and catheters during peripherally inserted central catheter line insertion. Designed for seamless integration into Blue Phantom arm models containing an upper arm cavity (Part Number P/N# BPA202, BPA204 and BPA200).
Using Blue Phantom proprietary simulated human tissue, this very realistic and ultra-durable venous access ultrasound training tissue insert is excellent for training clinicians in the hand-eye coordination associated with ultrasound guided venous access procedures. These ultrasound imaging skills include; using ultrasound system controls, transducer positioning and movement, recognition of arterial and venous anatomy, identifying venous thrombosis, using ultrasound to target the appropriate vessels for cannulation, and using ultrasound to guide venous access procedures in the upper arm.
Learn to use ultrasound on ultra-durable training models.
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 mannequin is constructed using Blue Phantom’s 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.
Extremely realistic ultrasound imaging.
Each model offers the vascular anatomy of the upper arm including the brachial and basilic veins and thrombus present in the brachial vein. 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. The thrombus located in the brachial vein is extremely realistic in its ultrasound appearance and will not compress with transducer pressure.
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 (recommended ultrasound transducer; high frequency linear array ultrasound probe 5.0 – 12 MHz). This ultrasound phantom model is excellent for specialties including anesthesiology (anaesthesiology), emergency medicine, PICC nursing, nursing programs, simulation centers, medical education facilities, radiology departments, and ultrasound manufacturers for ultrasound education and demonstrations.
