The BEST Vascular Access Phantom for ECPR Simulation

Jacob Avila, MD, RDMS,  from 5minsono shared this video of his recipe for making the ULTIMATE ultrasound-friendly vascular access phantom.  Jacob hosts the site.

Jacob introduced us to this ballistic gel phantom for our ED ECMO Workshop at Castlefest 2015 and it worked wonderfully.  Each phantom was able to accept multiple cannulations with 21 Fr cannulas!  And when we were  done we just melted them down and made new phantoms.

If you need the ultimate recipe for making ultrasound-friendly vascular access phantoms, check out Jacob's site and use this recipe.

EDECMO-endorsed!  Thanks, Jacob!
