- Detailed Description
The curved contour on the top of the phantom is similar to contours on patients and has the added benefit of showing the importance of transducer positioning, as positioning can affect the quality of the image viewed--this is not possible on phantoms that are flat. The phantom can be imaged and accessed from the top, side or bottom surface, on the base or removed from the case.
We have been told by clinicians that this phantom has the best imaging of all currently available phantoms and some have commented that they reduce the gain on the ultrasound machine for advanced users wanting a more challenging vascular access experience. It is so realistic that movement of the soft tissue can be observed as the needle tip is guided to the vessel. Successful accessing can be confirmed by visualization of the needle tip in the vessel and by a blood return.
VATA’s 0705- Vascular Access Ultrasound Phantom is an excellent model for beginners and more advanced clinicians in many areas of care including – simulation labs, IV nursing, anesthesiology, radiology, ultrasound training, nurse practitioners, emergency medicine and others.
VATA 0705 – Vascular Access Ultrasound Phantom has three vessels contained within the phantom:
Small superficial vein
Mid-sized vein which bifurcates into two smaller vessels
Large deeply place vein
The model is supplied pre-filled with a stain resistant simulated blood, a separate 2oz/60ml bottle of stain resistant simulated blood, and a lightweight, compact, form-fitting case that protects the phantom when not in use and is the most compact housing of all currently available phantoms.
Failure to use VATA ultrasound blood can affect the image quality and will void product warranty
The phantom is compatible with any ultrasound imagining system with a appropriate transducer.
