The head and neck simulator consists of a sculpted mandrel containing channels for a simulated jugular vein covered with a moveable latex "skin". The simulator can be used to teach advanced techniques such as placement of through-the-needle catheters, special procedures like the Seldinger (guide wire) Technique for placement of multi-lumen and pulmonary artery catheters, and blood collection techniques with a syringe and needle, or through an existing catheter. Includes an instructional video film. This is one of two Vascular Access Training Models (VATMs). Please also see the Canine Foreleg simulator. VATMs are designed to provide students with the correct "look" and "feel" while learning to give injections, place catheters or draw blood. Special features of the VATMs include identifiable and palpable structural landmarks, replaceable vessels (tubing), flashback response, and a moveable, replaceable latex skin and components to provide longevity for the simulator.
This simulator was developed by Dr. Jan Ilkiw with funds provided by a gift from the Bosack Kruger Foundation of Redmond, Washington, and was manufactured exclusively for the School of Veterinary Medicine at University of California, Davis.
