Central Venous Catheter Insertion Simulator With Ultrasound

The trainees will learn three skills: how to make a safer puncture, how to avoid possible complications that may accompany the puncture, and how to insert the catheter into the correct position. When the procedure is performed incorrectly, the error will show immediately by feedback. Each training pad, placed at the right upper breast and right half of the neck covering the puncturing sites and catheter routes is a precise, life-size model incorporating the anatomical structure of bones, veins, arteries and upper lung. (Ultrasound pad does not have subclavian vessels.) The landmark puncture pad is designed to provide training in safely puncturing the subclavian vein or internal jugular vein, and inserting a catheter into SVC (superior vena cava). Carotid artery pulsation is palpable. The ultrasound puncture pad allows training in internal jugular vein puncturing under ultrasound scanning. Clear scanning image facilitates understanding of how to distinguish vein from artery and perform safe puncture while watching an ultrasound monitor. A transparent block for three-dimensional anatomical understanding also works as an effective training tool for developing guide wire insertion skills.
