DEVELOP SKILLS FOR ULTRASOUND GUIDED INJECTION AND VENIPUNCTURE TECHNIQUES IN A NON-STRESSFUL ENVIRONMENT
The CIRS Vascular Access Training Phantom is designed to provide a realistic training medium for needle insertion. The phantom is made from a durable elastomeric compound mimicking the tactile feel and puncture resistance of soft tissue. This material has realistic acoustic properties allowing imaging of the simulated vessels under ultrasound. The vessels can be accessed from top and bottom surfaces and can be easily replenished using a syringe. The phantom requires no special handling and will not dry out. The phantom also includes start-up accessories.
“Dynamic and static US guidance during central venous catheter insertion was associated with improved in-hospital first cannulation rates and overall success rates of insertions by junior residents.”

- Teach ultrasound scan techniques
- Demonstrate and practice various insertion techniques
- Experiment with new procedures and evaluate new devices
- Teach vein recognition through palpation
