The most authentic simulation solution to develop  the required cognitive and psychomotor skills for transesophageal echocardiography (TEE).

Users will find the real-time and seamless ultrasound imaging  in synchronisation with their movement of the TEE probe, the most realistic and accurate training experience available in preparation for real patient examinations.

A stress free and certainly risk free ultrasound training solution, the Heartworks system is an essential addition to any unit offering an ultrasound and echocardiography service, or trying to teach such skills.

Realistic TEE probe positioning

This simulator allows for a realistic TEE probe with authentic controls to be inserted into the mouth of the life-size upper torso mannequin.  With easy USB connection to the computer system, the hand-held probe controls the  position of the on-screen simulated TEE probe and ultrasound planes.

Visualising and interpreting image relationships

The ground-breaking virtual TEE probe generates simulated ultrasound images, which are derived directly and continuously from the 3D heart model.  With the standard flexion, rotation and angulation capabilities of a multi-plane probe, students of TEE will be able to clearly visualise the relationship between the 2D TEE image represented on the screen and the underlying 3D anatomy of the heart.

Pathology and Doppler tools

HeartWorks pathology models extend the learning experience by facilitating evaluation of patients with structural and hemodynamic disturbances.  In addition, colour and spectral Doppler modalities are available along with the tools with which to make a quantitative assessment of cardiac function.

HeartWorks TEE Simulator includes:

  • HeartWorks Modules 1, 2 & 3
  • Doppler functions CFM/PW/CW
