Combined Ultrasound Guided Thoracentesis/Pericardiocentesis
This ultrasound compatible model is a multifaceted trainer that facilitates training in thoracentesis and pericardiocentesis. The combined model allows trainees to use the clear ultrasound image provided to accurately perform both procedures.
The Thoracentesis Trainer accommodates mid-scapular line access and mid-axillary line access, whilst the strap-on units allow for the use of a simulated patient in a training scenario.
The ability to pierce the pericardial sac using ultrasound guidance provides learners with the platform to repeatedly practice patient safety during the pericardiocentesis procedure.
