The Blue Phantom™ Heart Block Model is ideal for training clinicians in the techniques associated with transthoracic echocardiography, transesophageal echo (TEE), and ultrasound-guided pericardiocentesis procedure training. Blue Phantom’s TTE/TEE cardiac ultrasound training model permits clinicians to develop and practice ultrasound imaging skills such as TEE, transthoracic echocardiography, and ultrasound-guided pericardiocentesis. These skills include using ultrasound system controls, transducer insertion & placement, probe positioning and movement applying proper transducer pressure to obtain images, recognition of the cardiac structures, guiding needles and catheters to the pericardial space for pericardiocentesis training. This lightweight, portable heart model features an extremely realistic echocardiography training platform as you utilize your own ultrasound system for simulation training. The self-healing simulated tissue allows for repeated procedural training without fluid leakage while utilizing 18 - 21 gauge needles and corresponding catheters.
This incredibly realistic, transesophageal TEE and transthoracic echo simulator is transparent and allows users to visualize the needle and the TEE probe without the use of ultrasound. This permits the user to comprehend the spatial orientation of the needle and the TEE probe. Utilizing your own ultrasound system and a TEE simulator, this trainer will perform well using any ultrasound imaging system configured with appropriate transducers for echocardiography imaging procedures. The Blue Phantom's uncompromising quality allows clinicians to utilize the model to repeatedly practice the procedure without the high costs of replacing disposable parts. Users can expect extreme durability with the simulated tissue able to perform well for thousands of pericardiocentesis procedures. This ultrasound simulation model is excellent for cardiology, anesthesiology, emergency medicine, ultrasound training programs, simulation centers, surgical skills centers, medical education facilities, and ultrasound manufacturers for ultrasound education and demonstrations.
The heart anatomy contains left and right ventricle, left and right atria, mitral valve, tricuspid valve, aortic valve, pulmonic valve, left atrial appendage, pulmonary arteries, pulmonary veins, pericardium, ascending aorta, SVC, and IVC for extremely realistic imaging. The user can obtain images from all appropriate imaging positions including transesophageal and transthoracic imaging windows. The trainer is ideal for 2-D, 3-D, and 4-D training. Clinicians can be trained to develop and practice cardiac ultrasound TEE and TTE echocardiography exams and pericardiocentesis procedures.
The Blue Phantom is amazingly durable and can be used for repeated training without the high cost of replacing disposable parts. Extracted fluid is easily replaced using a quick fill port or continuous filling using a Luer lock. Uncompromising image quality allows you to teach using sonographically accurate models. The manikin includes anatomical landmarks for the most realistic simulation training. You can practice using ultrasound system controls thanks to the high-quality, proven patented technology.
