Ultrasound Thoracentesis Model THM-20

The Ultrasound Thoracentesis Model simulates a partial torso with anatomical landmarks including the scapula, ribs, diaphragm, pleural cavity, and lung. A positive fluid flow then offers users feedback when pleural effusions are accurately accessed.  The trainer is designed to be filled with fluid and is self-sealing for multiple procedures. This is also the only trainer available that responds to the Safe-T-Centesis™ Catheter Drainage Kits.

The Thoracentesis Model’s simulated lung can be seen as an echogenic structure with an inflation mechanism to adjust the size of the pleural effusion.  The open top allows the instructor to provide feedback on procedural concepts by allowing students to visualize the catheter depth and placement when inserted into the pleural cavity.  A positive fluid flow then offers users feedback when pleural effusions are accurately accessed.  The trainer is designed to be filled with fluid and is self-sealing for multiple procedures.
