TruNerveBlock is a 3-in-1 model for trainee anesthetists to develop, practice and maintain the skills necessary to use ultrasound for guiding regional anesthesia and vascular access procedures. The model features a fractured bone structure & embedded vessels allowing effective practice of routine IV cannulation and additional nerve bundles for regional anaesthesia.
This model is ideal for emergency medicine, radiology, surgical training programs, ultrasound training programs, simulation centers, surgical skills centers, medical education facilities, and ultrasound manufacturers for ultrasound education and demonstrations. Contact TruCorp to request pricing or a free product demonstration at your organization.
Practice probe positioning and movement, recognition of arterial and vein vessels and nerves in soft responsive tissue. Using ultrasound to target the vessels and nerves for ultrasound guided regional anaesthesia and vascular access procedures.
Surrounding vessels are used as reference points to differentiate from the nerve
Simulated anaesthetics can be injected into the model with visual air and fluid retention possible alongside the nerve
Ability to verify needle tip location and to practice the entire regional anaesthesia procedure
Fluids can be easily removed from the product through our self-contained innovative fluid management system so that the product can be used repeatedly for training
Using TruCorps’ unique ultrasound gel this creates a perfect medium to allow fluid retention and realistic muscle fluid absorption
This ultrasound gel can be removed upon fluid build-up easily with a syringe and new gel inserted easily
Once users accurately access the vessels within the model, positive fluid flow provides the user with positive feedback that they have cannulated the targeted vessel
Visualizing of the artery and vein laterally beside the nerve
High frequency linear array ultrasound probe can be used on the model
Colour Doppler detection of blood flow
Realistic flashback upon entry into the vessel
Two embedded vessels, small/large and shallow/deep
Real feel vascular ‘tenting’ upon entry into the vessel
Self-healing TruUltra material that leaves minimal marks and self-regeneration up to 90% within 24 hours
An acoustic shadow artefact in the hypoechoic region deep to a hyperechoic bone outline
Fracture assessment detection and diagnosing bone stress injury
