SimMan 3G PLUS Patient Simulator
VICTORIA® S2200 Patient Simulator
From early pregnancy complications, high-risk deliveries, and postpartum emergencies to non-gravid scenarios for general nursing care, VICTORIA simulates a full range of obstetrical events to facilitate teamwork and deepen critical thinking skills in learners of all levels. More than a childbirth simulator, VICTORIA is a complete simulation solution developed from decades of obstetrical experience. It is a comprehensive package of tools and support designed to help improve patient safety in women’s health through education and training.
WesternU students who focus on health care for infants, children and adolescents, will train on the world’s most advanced pediatric patient simulator and the first capable of simulating lifelike emotions through dynamic facial expressions, movement, and speech – Pediatric HAL S2225 (AKA Isaac). This experience is designed to help WesternU students develop the specialized skills needed to effectively communicate with, diagnose, and treat young patients throughout the continuum of care, including pre-hospital, transport, emergency, nursing, and intensive care settings.
- Lifelike facial expressions, emotions, and speech; Isaac talks and cries when something hurts
- Real patient monitoring equipment and mechanical ventilators
- Emergency procedures including surgical airway, needle decompression, and chest tube thoracostomy
- Wireless and tetherless: fully operational in transit facilitates in-situ simulation including patient transport and handoff exercises
- 10 Simulation Learning Experiences designed to replicate an assortment of clinical situations throughout the spectrum of pediatric care
As WesternU students deliver a baby from VICTORIA, they will then have the opportunity to embrace and care for Super TORY S2220®. TORY is the first newborn simulator developed to meet the challenges of neonatal care specialist training in real environments. Active movement, true ventilator support and real patient monitoring. TORY will simulate complex pathologies and respond to interventions with unparalleled realism offering true-to-life physical and physiological attributes for every stage in neonatal care, whether training in a simulation center, in situ, or in transit.
TOM provides the ability to care from point of injury to transfer of higher care. It allows you to build multiple PR Scenarios and create realistic Full Mission Profile with reactive patients. TOM is designed for both classroom settings, trauma lanes and field training scenarios. Multiple appendages present a variety of wounds including GSW, blast and burns to provide full mission profiles in combat scenarios.
Trauma HAL is specifically engineered to meet the training need of first responders, EMS, and in-hospital emergency teams. Trauma HAL helps teams engage in true-to-life training exercises to improve emergency preparedness, response, and patient care. Featuring anatomically accurate landmarks and proportions, learners are able to utilize native equipment including ECG Monitors, BP Cuff, and defibrillators.
