Valkyrie offers the largest, most realistic, and most economical line of ultrasound guided regional block simulators on the market and our newest addition is no exception.
Introducing MiniSim Ocular Block Simulator. The MiniSim Ocular Simulator facilitates knowledge and skills acquisition for the performance of Peribulbar and Retrobulbar blocks, allows injection practice, and teaches ultrasound ocular anatomy recognition and needle-eye coordination to safely guide needle insertion.
Supported Blocks: Retrobulbar, Peribulbar, Sub Tenon (left and right eye)
Internal Anatomy: Optic Nerve, iris, cornea, lens, vitreous body, orbit.
External Landmarks: Eyelid, orbit.
Cast from human anatomy, MiniSim includes realistic external landmarks and internal anatomy. MiniSim vessels do not require filling, emptying, and cleaning that can create vessel contamination affecting visualization. Internal anatomically and proportionally correct structures closely mimic human anatomy scans.
MiniSim Simulators tissue is self-healing and durable. The plastic base protects internal anatomy like bone structures. MiniSim simulators eliminate leaking vessels and the need to replace vessels by incorporating unique solid vessels (except vascular access models). MiniSim Simulators offer fast and efficient setup. It’s as easy as opening the storage case, removing the MiniSim from its protective bag, and starting your scans. MiniSim’s procedure tray allows easy cleanup after injection practice. Remove scanning gel to complete the cleaning process for next use.
MiniSim’s design, durability, ease of set-up, use, and storage make it the most cost-effective regional block training simulator available.
Optional/Replacement Component: MS2I-OCC Rotational/Replacement Insert requires only a few sections to replace or rotate the insert to allow the continuation of practicing needle placement.
Busy teaching/training programs can easily consist of more than 20 participants taking at least 3 attempts before a successful simulated block is accomplished. This can produce up to 60 needle tracks in your simulator. Although Valkyrie simulators are “self-healing”, it will take up to a few hours for needle tracks to dissipate. Eliminate the wait time, keep your training on schedule, and double the life of your simulator by purchasing an additional insert.
