Blue Phantom™ Lumbar Puncture and Spinal Epidural
Offers clinicians the flexibility to practice and teach a wide variety of procedures including lumbar puncture, lumbar epidural, thoracic epidural, and cervical epidural diagnostic and therapeutic procedures*.Practice or teach a wide variety of procedures including lumbar puncture, lumbar epidural, thoracic epidural, and cervical epidural procedures. Our realism optimizes your training while our self-healing tissue saves you money by reducing the need for purchasing replacement parts. The optional thoracic or cervical/upper thoracic spine insert allows users to practice thoracic or cervical epidural needle and catheter placements and shares the same superior performance and realism as the lumbar spine tissue insert. Users are able to perform epidural procedures and cerebral spinal fluid is present in the model as a way of providing the user immediate feedback as to procedural complications. Use any ultrasound system and never have to adjust the system settings unrealistically or have problems imaging the model’s anatomy. The trainer can be positioned in the upright or lateral decubitus position allowing users to accurately position the model for appropriate training scenarios. External landmarks at the iliac crests can be palpated in the model to initially orient the user to the proper access points. Palpation of the spinous processes provides additional landmarks The cerebral spinal fluid pressures can be easily increased in order to simulate pathological scenarios during lumbar puncture training Ultrasound can be used for identification of the optimal insertion points, angle of needle insertion, and determination of the depth to the ligamentum flavum, epidural space, and spinal cistern. Size: 17" L x 11" W x 17" H (43 cm x 28 cm x 43 cm). Weight: 33 lbs. (15 kg).*The thoracic tissue module and cervical tissue module are optional and available at an additional cost.
