Lisa Chamberlain of The Chamberlain Group toured us through Surgical Sam while exhibiting at the International Meeting for Simulation in Healthcare 2015. This unique model allows for advanced surgical training with realistic features specific to modules teams need rare training to perform. Watch our video interview below to get an inside look at Surgical Sam:
More from The Chamberlain Group’s Website:
“Surgical Sam is the world’s first beating heart, breathing, bleeding, high fidelity team trainer for pediatric surgery, developed with Boston Children’s Hospital as the centerpiece of their team-training initiatives in pediatric cardiothoracic and general surgery.
Unlike other patient mannequins that simulate only basic physiology, Surgical Sam ‘moves the needle’ on pediatric surgical team training by allowing important steps of surgery to really happen – allowing OR teams to fully immerse in simulations to optimize performance, safety and outcomes for children.
Surgical Sam for CT Training includes:
- Surgical Sam Chassis
- Cardiothoracic Module
- Beating Heart Controller
- Pulse Controller
- Variable Rate Controller
- Shipping Case
- Quick Start Curriculum developed by Boston Children’s Hospital
Modules available now
The Cardiothoracic Module features a beating heart with replaceable right atrium and aorta for cannulation, a suturable IVC bleed site, recloseable sternum, and ventilation-compatible lungs. Module supports hemodynamic flow to the thoracic cavity; bleed sites are externally controlled for simulating hemorrhagic events.
The General Surgery Module includes ventilation compatible lungs, replaceable stomach and duodenum, liver with a capsule bleed and simulated electrocautery, and bowel for perforation and other emergent procedures. Module supports hemodynamic flow to the abdominal cavity; bleed sites are externally controlled for simulating hemorrhagic events.”
