Using ultrasonography to place central lines has been shown to improve patient outcomes when compared to using anatomical landmarks alone (Denys, Iwashima, Karakitsos).

SonoSim offers a comprehensive library of modules designed to help physicians improve and refine their ultrasound-guided venous cannulation technique and specifically improve their peripheral line, internal jugular line, femoral line, and subclavian line proficiencies.

Ultrasound-Guided Procedures Training Now Available

Learning Ultrasound-Guided Procedures

The SonoSim® Vascular Access Package offers over 30 hours of content for practitioners looking to learn how to perform ultrasound-guided procedures.

The package is organized into 5 SonoSim® Modules, including over 50 SonoSimulator® hands-on training cases across a variety of essential medical topics related to performing ultrasound-guided venous cannulations.

Each SonoSim® Module consists of didactic lessons, knowledge assessment, and SonoSimulator® hands-on training cases.
