TruNerve Block (Dark Skin Tone)
TruNerve is a multi-functional ultrasound simulator designed for clinicians, nurses, emergency medicine and medical education facilities, to aid in nerve block, IV insertion and bone imaging training.
The innovative TruUltra material allows the block to heal between training sessions, and has a 90% regeneration when left overnight. This gives trainees a fresh surface to work with for repeatable practice.
What are the benefits of the TruNerve Block?
Ultrasound guided vascular access
Using the TruNerve trainer allows trainees to recognise 3D structures in the flat images displayed. This skill means clinicians will be able to successfully the needle tip to the correct position to administer regional anaesthesia.
The nerve block has two vessels (different sizes and depths) embedded within it, they can be identified with an ultrasound probe, and upon successful entry flashback and vascular tenting are visible.
Ultrasound bone imaging
Materials within the TruNerve Block have the acoustic properties of human soft tissues and bones. Ultrasound imaging can be used to identify bone fragments and diagnose bone stress injuries.
An ideal model for teaching a range of ultrasound techniques from probe positioning and movement to how to interpret imaging to perform successful needle insertions.
