CentraLineMan System



SKU: CLM-50

CentraLineMan is the most widely used Central Venous Catheterization training solution in the market today and is proven when used with rigorous training to reduce patient complications from central venous catheter insertion. This flexible system offers unsurpassed value with clinically relevant anatomy, time-tested ultrasound compatible tissues, with market leading durability from needle sticks to full catheterizations all with the ability to interchange the Articulating Head, Body Form Base and Tissues with many of Simulab’s other procedural task trainers. 

Investing in CentraLineMan and any of Simulab’s other products, comes with a guarantee of receiving exceptional customer service, visibility and support for product upgrades and the comfort of “no customer being left behind” as we keep pace with technological advancements.

Clinically Relevant Anatomy

CentraLineMan features clinically relevant landmarks and anatomy; learners can practice performing full venous catheterization using ultrasound guided or blind/landmark insertion approaches at the subclavian, supraclavicular, and internal jugular vein sites. CentraLineMan includes clinically relevant internal and external landmarks that are palpable and or visible under ultrasound. These include: 

  • Upper torso and neck
  • Trachea
  • Clavicle
  • Sternal notch
  • Sternocleidomastoid muscle
  • Sternal and clavicular heads of the sternocleidomastoid muscle
  • Manubrium
  • Lateral border of the first rib
  • Superior vena cava
  • Upper lung
  • Vascular Anatomy including: External Jugular, Internal Jugular, Subclavian, and Brachiocephalic Veins; Carotid and Subclavian artery

Skill Development

  • Practice full central venous catheterization using ultrasound guided or blind/landmark insertion approaches at the subclavian, supraclavicular, and internal jugular access sites.
  • Practice placing patient in appropriate position per access site standards
  • Gain experience in identifying and selecting appropriate access site based on patient anatomical variations
  • Practice use of ultrasound for:
    • Developing psychomotor skills required for obtaining visualization during cannulation
    • Detecting anatomical variations
    • Distinguishing vessels
    • Visualizing arterial pulse and venous compression
    • Identifying anatomical location of target vessel
    • Visualizing needle cannulation of target vessel in transverse view
    • Visualize threading of guidewire in longitudinal axis view
    • Visualizing catheter placement
    • Reducing rate of mechanical complications due to anatomical variances such as: pneumothorax or arterial puncture.
    • Improving first cannulation success and decreasing needle passes
  • Practice palpating external landmarks to identify vessel location
  • Practice identifying unsuccessful vessel access by fluid feedback representing arterial puncture

Throughout the history of medicine, clinical learning has been based on imitating the actions of others. Medical students are expected to learn complex medical tasks by watching other clinicians perform that task. This is known as the “see one, do one” approach, or the apprenticeship model. Certainly, the “see one, do one” approach to learning will continue to have its place. In many cases, however, experts within healthcare see simulation as an alternative, or at least a stepping-stone, between classroom learning and clinical practice. This means change.
