Occasionally we find a need for a scenario or skill session to focus on a specific procedure or task. These situations are where our Partial Task Trainers come in handy. The goal of training on partial-task models is to allow people to practice a specific skill set. In doing so, when techniques are applied to more complex simulations or real-life situations, the medical professional is equipped with the tools and the confidence to handle the situation appropriately. Our inventory is made up of devises we’ve created as well as trainers from some of the leading manufacturers of simulation based technology. Our program uses a combination of these with human patient simulators to create a more realistic environment. Below are a few examples of what we commonly use.
AirSim Baby is the first edition of Trucorp's family of advanced airway paediatric manikins. True to its heritage, AirSim Baby has realistic anatomy and a clinical functionality that enables basic and advanced paediatric airway management. AirSim Baby facilitates training in the use of bag/mask ventilation, supraglottic airway insertion and both naso and orotracheal intubation. In addition, it can be used with all current videolaryngoscopes.
LumbarPunctureBaby is a new addition to our trainer family. It simulates a two week old infant that can be positioned either lateral or decubitus. The body form is anatomically correct with a partial iliac crest and umbilicus. The replaceable tissue has L3 – L5 vertebrae with a partial sacrum and the gluteal crest. Each tissue includes a spinal cord filled with simulated CSF and the epidural venous plexus filled with simulated blood.
Blue Phantom’s upper torso ultrasound guided central line placement training model with transparent tissue insert allows users to develop and practice the skills necessary to gain proficiency in using ultrasound to guide central catheter insertions in the internal jugular vein (IJ), subclavian vein, and axillary vein while revealing the venous and arterial vessels as well as accessory boney structures. Developed with the goal of helping clinicians bridge the learning gap by allowing them to see the internal anatomical structures with their eyes as well as with ultrasound imaging, our transparent central line placement tissue offers superb ultrasound hands-on training. Using Blue Phantom proprietary simulated human tissue, this very realistic and ultra-durable transparent central venous access ultrasound training model is excellent for training clinicians in the psychomotor skills associated with ultrasound guided central line placement procedures. These ultrasound imaging skills include; using ultrasound system controls, transducer positioning and movement, recognition of arterial and venous anatomy, using ultrasound to target the appropriate vessels for cannulation, and performing a central venous access procedure.
