This simulator includes three interchangeable pads for the puncture area, landmark puncture pad, ultrasound puncture pad and transparent cannulation block.
The trainee will learn three skills: how to make a safer puncture, how to avoid possible complications that may accompany the puncture, 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.
