Central Line Trainers

Simulab BluePhantom
Simulab
  • Central Vascular Catheterization, using Subclavian, Supraclavicular, and Internal Jugular approaches
  • Using ultrasound guidance during catheter placement
  • Palpating anatomic landmarks significant to the procedure
  • Excellent for ultrasound guided central venous access hands-on training
  • Anatomically correct human torso with landmarks
  • Differentiates arterial and venous blood to show positive or negative results
  • Self sealing veins and skin for multiple cannulations
  • Replaceable tissue sets allow for multiple uses
  • Arterial pulse and proper landmarks are present to help avoid and detect errors
BluePhantom
  • Extremely realistic external landmarks and internal anatomy for ultrasound guided or blind insertion technique
  • Use with any ultrasound system and experience the same quality you expect from imaging patients in a clinical environment
  • Self-healing tissue offers users tremendous durability – minimizing the need for replacement parts and providing a low cost of ownership
  • Superior realism, reliability and durability
  • Anatomically correct; constructed from a digital human file
  • Venous anatomy includes: internal jugular vein (IJ), brachiocephalic vein, subclavian vein and axillary vein
  • Arterial anatomy includes: carotid artery, subclavian artery and axillary artery
  • Simulated superior vena cava, right atrium and right ventricle offers users the ability to fully thread guidewires and catheters without resistance
  • Additional internal landmarks include the trachea, manubrium and clavicle
  • Veins are compressible using mild pressure while the arteries remain uncompressed
  • Arterial pulsations are simulated using a provided hand bulb or optional integrated automated pumping system
  • Positive fluid flow in the vessels; model is prefilled with red fluid in the arteries and blue fluid in the veins
