What makes the TruUltra ultrasound material so unique?

The TruUltra material is unlike anything else in the market. It showcases a high-quality ultrasound image to provide trainees with a true-to-life ultrasound training solution. Learners will benefit from realistic visualisation of the median cubital, brachial and basilic veins, and can appreciate differentiation between the basilic vein and basilic artery.

Aside from realism, the TruUltra material is well known for its durability and features unique self-regenerating properties to diminish the appearance of needle tracks after use.

Q: What skills can I teach using the TruPICC?

An adult male arm which enables learners to gain proficiency in:

  • Full catheter PICC line placement using ultrasound
  • Ultrasound-guided intravenous (IV) cannulation techniques

Q: What age of patient is the TruPICC designed as?

The TruPICC is designed as an adult male patient.

Q: Why can't I visualise the veins clearly?

Poor quality ultrasound images are caused by air inside the blood. To improve the image, insert more blood into the cephalic and basilic veins. Approximately 10-20mL per vein should be sufficient.

Q: How often do I need to replace the ultrasound insert? 

The ultrasound insert comfortably facilitates 800+ needle penetrations using the recommended equipment sizes. You can close one side of the fluid system when it is destroyed by switching the appropriate vein to 'OFF'. The functioning side of the insert can still be used as normal without leaks from the used sides. 

Q: Why is the insert leaking when I refill blood into the veins?

Sometimes when refilling blood into the system, you may see some small leaks on the insert from old punctures. This is caused when the blood is being refilled too quickly through the syringe. To minimize the leakage, enter the fluid slowly.

Q: What package contents will arrive with my order?

  • 1x TruPICC carrier case
  • 250ml bottle of artificial blood concentrate (CVB250)

Q: Does the training model provide user feedback to indicate successful procedures?

Yes, real feel vascular tenting will be experienced upon entry into a vessel and fluid can be withdrawn if the procedure is successful. The upper chest features the superior vena cava to allow users to verify correct catheter placement using ultrasound.
