I got the chance to use and evaluate the Kyoto Kagaku Ultrasound guided Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter procedure phantom. The phantom consists of a torso and an arm that articulates at the shoulder to be able to place the arm in different positions.
The upper arm has a replaceable area that can be ultrasounded and cannulated. The targets are the cephalic and basilic veins. The vessels outside of the insert are clear so you can see the wire and/or catheter threading. There is the ability to place the wire in to the SVC and the IJ. There is a vessel that is used to fill the model and could be considered an azygos vein, but its take off is a little odd.
The video goes over the phantom’s parts and images along with demonstration of access and wire threading.
Disclosure: Phantom model was provided by Kyoto Kagaku for evaluation.
