CIRS introduces Vascular Access Training Phantom

Norfolk, Virginia (April 22, 2009) CIRS is pleased to introduce the Model 072 Vascular Access Training Phantom Kit. The Model 072 was designed to provide a realistic training medium for needle insertion.  It is made from a durable elastometric compound mimicking the tactile feel and puncture resistance of soft tissue.  This self-healing material has realistic acoustic properties allowing imaging of the simulated palpable vessels under ultrasound. The phantom includes one bifurcated vessel and 2 straight walled vessels at a variety of depths and diameters to simulate a range of challenges often encountered in the clinical environment. The phantom can be easily replenished without leakage using a syringe (included) and a stopcock enables increased vessel pressure for more realistic simulation.  The kit also includes needles and a supply of simulated blood.  The phantom requires no special handling and will not dry out.
