3D-Printed Ophthalmic Retrobulbar Anesthesia Simulator: Mimicking Anatomical Structures and Providing Tactile Sensations
Objective: A simulator for retrobulbar anesthesia administration mimicking the orbital anatomy and providing tactile sensation is proposed. Methods: The production process involves 3D modeling of anatomical structures on the basis of computerized tomography (CT) images, printing the models using a... Read more
Novel Simulation Model that Realizes Arterial and Venous Blood Flow for Ultrasound-Guided Central Venous Catheter Insertion in Children
Objective: We developed and validated a realistic simulation model for ultrasound-guided central venous catheter insertion in children that is easy to build and inexpensive and can automatically reproduce arterial and venous blood flow. Methods: The simulation model was constructed with... Read more
