In the field of intensive care, anesthesia and emergency medicine, performing invasive acts using Ultrasound guidance such as vascular puncture or performing locoregional anesthesia techniques is not devoid of iatrogenicity and adverse events which can sometimes be serious and fatal. Learning by simulation is an essential step aimed at reducing the risk of these serious undesirable events occurring when performing these techniques. The learning models offered by manufacturers remain demanding. We offer a simple and less demanding model on how to visualize the needle and to follow its progression during the realization of the invasive techniques under Ultrasound guidance. In our context, our resident anesthetists undergoing training benefit from the contribution of this model during their first training courses by simulating these invasive techniques. This allows these trainees to learn the concepts of in-plane and out-of-plane puncture of ultrasound as well as to master the techniques for tracking puncture needle progression. These simulation models would make the learning process of these invasive acts quick and easy while reducing the risk of iatrogenic incidents occurring.
