Cleaning and Maintenance

 

Always store in the transit case with the transit cover securely placed over the Ultrasound Simulator.

Do not place objects on or under the Ultrasound Simulator as the tissue is soft and may be damaged by the object.

Use New Sharp appropriate size needle (21/22 gauge) for the block being performed.

Never use a needle larger than 18 gauge.

Avoid damage to Ultrasound Simulator while repositioning the needle by removing and repositioning the needle. Aggressive repositioning of needles can cause permanent needle track marks and may permanently damage your model.

Dull needles may cause permanent damage.

While models can be injected with clean water such action will reduce the life of the product. Water will be expelled but should always be cleaned to reduced risk of biological contamination during storage.

 

Storage

Store in a dry place at a temperature between 10 C and 40 C (50-104 F).

Do not use bleach or any abrasive material to clean.

 

Common Issues

Issues – Ultrasound Simulator

Possible Solution

Reflections: If your model requires water the presence of air in the fluid vessels will produce significant reflections.

To remove air bubbles;

  2. Hold the Ultrasound Simulator vertically with the open luer end of the vessel pointing upward
  3. Tap the Ultrasound Simulator gently to dislodge any trapped air
  4. Replace the end cap
  5. If air is still visible then drain all fluid from the vessel and refill

Needle visibility may decrease due to track marks in areas of heavy use.

  1. Scan an adjacent area to allow the Ultrasound Simulator to recover 

Mold: A constant wet environment inside any fluid filled chamber can encourage growth of bacteria, mold of fungus. Remove water for storage.

  1. Remove cap from vessel
