Interprofessional Clinical Simulation

03_19_2020ResidentPPETrain060.jpg

Simulation provides risk-free training environments, enabling learners to practice skills and achieve acceptable levels of competency before moving on to real patient situations. Level 2 of the Davis Global Center brings the latest interprofessional simulation technologies to the fingertips of faculty, staff and learners, and will bridge the gap between didactic learning and actual patient care.

Simulation Equipment and Modalities  

Human Patient Simulators – A life-sized human like simulator representing a patient. The simulators breathe, have breath sounds, heart tones, and palpable pulses. The Davis Global Center is home to adult, pediatric, trauma, obstetric and neonatal simulators. Each simulator has a monitor that can display vital signs including, blood pressure, pulse oximeter, and EKGs.

Task Trainers–A model that represents a part or region of the human body used to train in key elements of a procedure or skill, such as lumbar puncture, chest tube insertion, and central line insertion. Below are some of the task trainers available in the Davis Global Center.

Adult IV Arms
Airway Management Trainers
Arthrocentesis Trainers
Arterial Blood Gas Trainer
Arterial Line Simulator
Birthing Torso
Catheterization Trainers
Central Line Insertion Trainer
Eye Examination Simulator

Lumbar Puncture (Adult and Infant)
NG Tube Insertion Trainer
OtoSim (otoscopy simulation trainer)
Paracentesis Trainer
Pediatric IV Arm
Thoracentesis Trainer
Trauma Child
Trauma Man
Vascular Access Child

Virtual Reality Simulators – The Interventional Skills Lab houses several virtual reality (VR) simulators.
BodyWorks Eve- simulator designed for interactive Point of Care Ultrasound (PoCUS) scenario training.
GI Mentor- endoscopic medical simulator for the training of gastrointestinal upper and lower endoscopic procedures
HeartWorks- contains an anatomically correct, virtual, beating 3D heart to aid teaching of cardiac anatomy and manikin-based simulation in echocardiography.
ScanTrainer-learners can practice basic and advanced ultrasound scanning skills. Offers a cloud-based library of over 500 normal and abnormal cases.
U\S Mentor- high-end medical simulator used for the training of ultrasound-related examinations and interventions. Examinations include a FAST exam, TEE, abdominal, 1st and 2nd trimester, etc.
