Insertion technique can be anatomical or US guided.....
Anatomical position of vein and artery on ultrasound
check you position with ultrasound or aspirating blood
First step.... get your wife plastered!
here you can see I built a stand that will hold the ultrasound phantom material and the neck lines
we have made a glass fibre shell containing replaceable latex tubing that will be the functional part of the model. We ultimately made 5 inserts and each will work for about 5-10 central lines
Jelly.... strawberry smelled the best!
After much experimenting we found that one block of jelly combined with half a cup of water gave a good solid feel and excellent ultrasound images
the jelly mold is inserted into the trainer. It can then be covered by a latex skin or spray painted to look more realistic....
Just find some eager juniors and sim away...
