MW4 Ultrasound-Guided Thoracentesis Simulator
Ultrasound-Guided Thoracentesis Simulator features two types of puncture units: mid-scapular line access and mid-axillary line access.
Strap-on (wearable) puncture units facilitate hybrid training sessions with simulated patients.
1 | Palpable ribs
2 | Realistic needle-tip insertion and resistance
3 | Strap-on units to practice patient positioning and communication
4 | Two sites for access: right mid-scapular line and left mid-axillary line
5 | Volume of pleural effusion can be controlled to set different levels of difficulty.
6 | Body torso for independent training. (Only for MW4)
1 | Patient positioning
2 | Recognition of anatomical landmarks by ultrasound
3 | Assessment of level and volume of pleural effusion
4 | Determination of insertion site
5 | Needle insertion and collection of fluid
