The external jugular vein is slightly raised with an opening to attach your own triple lumen catheter and there is also an opening in the upper chest area for placement of a subclavian catheter. These optional catheters are available from VATA, or if you prefer, you can send us the catheters your institution uses and we will install them at no charge. Included with this model is a real port that makes it possible to simulate accessing the following IVAD placements: “normal”, “tipping”, “wandering” or deeply placed in the left chest area. Successful access is confirmed by a “blood” return. Fluid can be infused and “blood” withdrawn from all the lines.
