Background and Aims: Ultrasound (US)-guided infraclavicular approach for axillary vein (AXV) cannulation has gained popularity in the last decade. Material and Methods: In this manikin study, we evaluated the feasibility of a training model for teaching AXV cannulation. The learning pattern with this technique was assessed among attending anesthesiologists and residents in training. Results: A faster learning pattern was observed for AXV cannulation among the attending anesthesiologists and residents in training, irrespective of their prior experience with US. It was evident that a training modality for this technique could be easily established with a phantom model and that hands-on training motivates trainees to embrace US-based central venous cannulation. Conclusion: A teaching model for US-guided infraclavicular longitudinal in-plane AXV cannulation can be established using a phantom model. A focused educational program would result in an appreciable change in preference in embracing US-based cannulation techniques among residents.
