NEW: Transthoracic Echocardiography SimulatorThis package allows real-time simulated TTE imaging of the virtual heart using a manikin. The life size manikin torso has soft skin with accurate, palpable anatomical landmarks to aid positioning of the handheld ultrasound probe.
The screen display allows the user to identify the position of the probe on the virtual chest as well as to see the orientation of the ultrasound plane.
The anatomy display includes a representation of the chest wall, ribs, sternum and spine as well as great vessels, lungs, pericardium, diaphragm and liver. These structures are displayed in the ultrasound view with realistic effects on cardiac imaging.
This package retains the virtual heart controls and features of the TEE and anatomy packages, along with the ability to generate 'slideshow' presentations.
"There is enormous demand for this type of skill in the field of intensive care, from cardiac physiology students to clinical practitioners. The inclusion of the HeartWorks simlulation experience in our course will enable delegates to observe and safely practice skills for a day in a typical scenario before they go on to hone their skills in the peri-operative setting"
