Our good friend Troy E. Reihsen, Director of the Human and Artificial Tissue Labs at the Department of Surgery of the University of Washington’s WWAMI Institute for Simulation in Healthcare (WISH) write in to share some awesome recent coverage the program has received from regional news outlets. Working alongside the Center for Research in Education and Simulation Technologies (CREST) the WISH team have been working on new innovative projects in medical simulation.
Are you launching a new simulation program, product or service? Read our comprehensive guide on how to gain more media attention to your healthcare simulation program to expand your marketing footprint!
The University of Washington’s premiere simulation training facility for healthcare education serving the WWAMI region. WISH connects over 30 departments and programs throughout UW Medicine, School of Medicine, School of Nursing, School of Pharmacy, and Physician’s Assistant Training Program.
1. Next Gen Manikins at UW Medicine Can Help Prep Combat Medics – Dr. Robert Sweet is the Director of the Simulation Lab at UW Medicine and has been leading the charge with the efforts to obtain the grant from the Department of Defense. He is looking forward to what the newest mannequin will be able to do to provide combat medics with real life scenarios. “Historically we haven’t had a lot of investment in simulation systems for training and now is a time when they are starting to invest,” Dr. Sweet said. “There’s a great interest.” This is a joint effort by the University of Washington, UW Medicine, the University of Minnesota, and the Department of Defense. Reihsen is excited about the potential. “We know that when we move better-trained health care providers to the front lines, we have better survivability. So there definitely needs to be more training and we need a model like this to support the training,” Reihsen said.

3. UW Creating Next-Gen Manikins with to Train Battlefield Medics – Sweet and UW researchers are creating mannequin skin that’s warm to the touch, tongues moist with fake saliva, arms that reveal layers of fat when cut open, animatronic legs and more. By 2019 they expect to have a lifelike mannequin that looks and bleeds like a real soldier. And their technology may help the military move away from training its medics on live animals, a controversial practice that’s involved wounding and killing pigs and goats. “The practice itself is very much alive. That’s not to say we haven’t made progress,” said Shalin Gala of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). Named for Frankenstein, the Frank mannequin was built by Sweet and his team from parts created by three companies specializing in different areas — neck, torso, limbs — of medical mannequin training.
 Obviously we are excited to learn more about these new manikins, visit the UW WISH website for more!

New Healthcare Simulation Safety Org Provides Free Safety Stickers and More

simulated use only warning label

A concerned group of simulation champions have created a new organization to help ensure that medical supplies designated for use in simulation are not accidentally used in patient care. The website provides FREE warning templates or allows you to order some pre-made stickers for your simulation lab. HealthySim applauds this new groups innovation and concern for this very real issue! Some years ago patients were given simulated IV bags which caused numerous illnesses which you can read about here.

About the Warning Label Stickers

Standardized “Not for human use / education only” labels have been designed in three sizes to be affixed to all simulation equipment, supplies, and medications. They can be purchased here as self-stick laminated labels in rolls of 250 for the printing cost plus shipping and a handling fee. Alternatively, templates for printing your own labels on Avery adhesive label sheets can be downloaded (note – they will not be waterproof unless you laminate them).

About the Healthcare Simulation Safety Project



“The spread of simulation throughout the healthcare world has been a wonderful technique to improve education, teamwork, and patient safety. Thousands of programs around the world are actively innovating every day to deliver high quality simulation sessions in a variety of settings with a wide array of educational goals. Promoting this evolution must not stop, as the aspirations and achievements are truly remarkable. However, there are dangers lurking.

As with anything new, unanticipated and subtle hazards exist and can be difficult to manage. In healthcare simulation we are introducing programs with its array of real and simulated equipment, supplies, and medications. We also bring a certain degree of deception, asking people to act as if things that are not real are true and things that are real are not. All of these introductions are into a healthcare world that has its own difficulties maintaining a safe and error free environment. The chance that this new world of simulation will lead to an accidental misuse of some simulated entity on a real patient or healthcare worker is real and worrisome.

On this website, we will try to present accidents and “near misses” from healthcare simulation that come to our attention. We will try to use the collective wisdom of the field to present best practices and mitigation strategies to help the simulation community reduce the potential for harm. Working together we hope to make the chance of a simulation related injury vanishing small. label The Foundation for Healthcare Simulation Safety has applied for 501-C3 not-for-profit status, as it has been established solely to promote education and safe practices for healthcare simulation programs.”

Cardionics IMSH 2017 Trade Show Floor Video Interview – New SAM3 & SimShirt!

cardionics simshirt

At IMSH 2017 HealthySimulation.com was on hand to interview the team from Cardionics about some of the awesome new products they launched at the show, including SAM 3 and the SimShirt. Stay tuned for more great IMSH video interview coverage!



SAM, the Student Auscultation Manikin 3rd Generation is an innovation in teaching and learning heart, lung, and bowel sounds. SAM’s brand new computer software interface includes Case Videos, a Real Sound Library, Echo Cardiogram Videos, and ECG Waveform for heart sounds.

The SimShirt is a garment worn by a Standardized Patient (SP) for simulating physiological conditions to test students and examine their diagnostic and procedural skills. SimShirt provides a second choice to wearing the RFID sensor tags required by the SimScope. Instead of wearing individual RFID sensor tags adhered to bare skin, the tags are integrated inside the SimShirt.  The SimShirt system has multiple uses in simulation. It can be worn by a Standardized Patient or also by a high-fidelity manikin. You can program the SimScope to play desired sounds from our vast sound library which is already embedded in the SimScope tablet. Once the standardized patient wears the SimShirt, the SimScope will read the RFID sensor tags placed within the SimShirt and your students will hear the programmed sounds of your choice through the scope. You can put the SimShirt on a low-fidelty manikin too to help increase simulation realism!

“Y… ¡corten!” – Algunos excelentes lugares donde obtener escenarios de simulación (incluso GRATIS)

staging_intructions_BIGimg.jpg

This is a Spanish translation of our article “And, Scene!” – Some Great Places to get Simulation Scenarios (even FREE)“, thanks to Alfred de Jesús Toledo de Lima Director del Centro de Simulación COSMOS en Universidad Nacional Pedro Henríquez Ureña!

La primera vez que me senté en una computadora de simulación de alta fidelidad y abrí la opción de programación sabía que había encontrado una nueva pasión. También sabía que habría mucha gente por ahí con temor de mirar la misma pantalla. Los escenarios de programación toman mucho tiempo para aquellos de nosotros que carecemos de buenos conocimientos de computación. Poner a funcionar un laboratorio de simulación sin escenarios es como tratar de conducir un coche sin combustible, podrias también salir y empujarlo o simplemente darte por vencido. La programación toma tiempo y cuando se lanza un nuevo laboratorio de simulación, puede que no sea factible que los educadores puedan disponer del compromiso de tiempo necesario para diseñar escenarios (y mucho menos para programarlos).

Por lo tanto, sin más preámbulos, haga clic en el enlace de abajo para obtener un par de recursos realmente excelentes que he encontrado (o que utilizamos en el Centro de Simulación Clínica de Las Vegas)

Escenarios GRATIS del Centro de Recursos de Enfermería del Área de la Bahía

Organizado por KT Waxman y sus amigos, el Bay Area Simulation Collaborative es el punto de partida para el Instituto de Enfermería y Atención Médica de California (CINHC) y la Alianza de Simulación de California (CSA). Ambos recursos tienen escenarios disponibles para los usuarios también. BASC ofrece algunos escenarios GRATIS para Médicos y Cirujanos, Cuidados Intensivos, Pediatria y Maternidad / Obstetricia. He escuchado de numerosas personas que este es un gran punto de partida para conseguir algunos escenarios de simulación de un alto nivel de funcionalidad.

Evolve SLS Case Escenarios de ENFERMERÍA de Elsevier

Los paquetes de escenarios disponibles de Evolve se alinean con los objetivos de enseñanza de varios textos educativos notables. Esto funciona bien porque sus estudiantes podrán leer sobre ejemplos específicos en su texto y luego tener la oportunidad de experimentar con ejemplos similares en sus Laboratorios de Simulación. Por supuesto, los escenarios pueden usarse independientemente y no tienen que alinearse con el texto, pero esta es una gran oportunidad si su departamento busca alinear el plan de estudios.

Elsevier hace un trabajo increíble en la creación de escenarios de simulación SIMPLES de leer y de entender con secciones dedicadas a los objetivos de aprendizaje, preparación y configuración, operaciones y debriefing. Aquí hay un ejemplo de la configuración de la sala para uno de los escenarios de Evolve:

Evolve ha tenido paquetes de escenarios Médico-Quirúrgicos basados en diferentes textos desde hace bastante tiempo, y recientemente han agregado Paquetes de Maternidad y Pediatría a su creciente arsenal. Una cosa importante a tener en cuenta es que estos escenarios son “en papel”, lo que significa que el paquete NO viene con programación de computadora para su sistema de simulación de alta fidelidad (es decir, Gaumard, METI o Laerdal). Así que alguien en su departamento todavía querrá programar estos paquetes de escenarios en sus sistemas informáticos, para que pueda utilizar la mayor eficiencia en su laboratorio y sus simulaciones. (Vea más sobre por qué esto es crucial para un programa de simulación exitoso mas abajo).

La mayoría de los profesores de nuestras dos Escuelas de Enfermería colaborativas utilizan los paquetes de escenarios de Evolve. Como administrador, me ha complacido trabajar con un sistema que puede poner en marcha las nuevas simulaciones en unas pocas horas sin forzar a los educadores a pasar horas preparando escenarios para sus cursos. Por supuesto que siento que los escenarios programados específicamente para el curso de cada instructor tendrán mejores resultados, pero comenzar con “un as bajo la manga” realmente ayuda a lanzar un nuevo programa de simulación.

Estos escenarios también se enlazan a un sistema interno de records de pacientes en línea, por lo que si usted puede proporcionar una computadora portátil con conexión a Internet en su Laboratorio de Simulación los estudiantes podrán elaborar estos detalles importantes durante el ejercicio.

La desventaja para mí con los paquetes de escenarios SLS de Evolve es que alguien tiene que pagar por el acceso a estos escenarios por cada estudiante. En otras palabras, estos escenarios son arrendados y no son comprados. Esto significa que tengo que seguir pagando en el sistema como si estos escenarios fueran libros de texto. Aunque los estudiantes de Enfermería tienen acceso a estos escenarios durante el tiempo de su educación, por supuesto, sería mejor si yo pudiera pagar una cuota por adelantado para accesar a este sistema y dejarlo asi.

Sin embargo, en este momento y en el futuro previsible hemos quedado muy contentos con este sistema. A largo plazo, habrá que explorar otras opciones más permanentes.



Paquetes de escenarios específicos para maniquies

Tanto METI como Laerdal tienen paquetes de escenarios de simulación que vienen programados para sus sistemas específicos. Una vez más, aunque con estas opciones se está comprando un diseño de sistema específico para un escenario, una vez posea el diseño usted puede programar el algoritmo en cualquiera de los otros sistemas en su propio tiempo. (Es decir, un escenario de PALS de Laerdal Simbaby puede ser utilizado fácilmente en un Baby Hal de Gaumard, sólo tiene que programar el software o ejecutarlo “sobre la marcha” usted mismo). El beneficio de comprar estos paquetes es que a diferencia de los escenarios Elsevier Evolve, ¡Luego de comprarlos son suyos! Esto es importante para cualquier tipo de Laboratorio de Simulación que corra educación multi-profesional a través de silos de atención médica, que pueden necesitar ejecutar simulaciones colaborativas. Así que con paquetes como los que se enumeran a continuación, una vez son comprados por su institución cualquiera en esa institución puede utilizarlos.

Los paquetes de cursos de Laerdal incluyen:

  • Casos de Pacientes de Trauma para SimMan 3G
  • Casos de Emergencia de Pacientes para SimMan 3G
  • Escenarios interprofesionales de entrenamiento Obstétrico para simuladores de nacimientos PROMPT
  • Simulación en Enfermería Educación Volumen I Paciente Casos
  • Simulación en Enfermería Educación Volumen II Paciente Casos
  • Escenarios avanzados de reanimación y estabilización neonatal para SimNewB
  • PALS SimBaby Escenarios
  • Currículo de Capacitación del Equipo de Respuesta Rápida
  • Los primeros 5 minutos del currículo
  • Escenarios de preparación para emergencias – Terrorismo
  • Escenarios ACLS
  • Escenarios NLN
  • Escenarios de trabajo en equipo y comunicación

* Edit: También, echa un vistazo a mi NUEVO post sobre SIMCENTER de Laerdal.

Los módulos de aprendizaje de METI incluyen:

  • Enfermería de Adultos
  • Apoyo Avanzado de Vida Cardíaca
  • Situaciones críticas cardiopulmonares
  • Combat Medic Entrenamiento Avanzado de Habilidades
  • Preparación Médica para Desastres
  • Servicios médicos de emergencia
  • Fundamentos de la Práctica de Enfermería
  • Emergencias Infantiles
  • Enfermería Infantil
  • Programa de residencia de enfermeras
  • Emergencias pediátricas
  • Apoyo avanzado de la vida pediátrica
  • Enfermería Pediátrica
  • Manejo perioperatorio
  • Programa de Integración Curricular de Enfermería
  • Programa de Simulación de Educación Respiratoria Módulo 1
  • Trauma Medical Care

METI también alberga una sección de compartición de escenarios en sus foros. 

Ahi tienes…. ¡pero espera! ¡Programar es Todavía la Perfección!

Ahora mientras que usted no tiene que programar escenarios “en papel” porque usted puede ejecutarlos sobre la marcha basándose en el algoritmo proporcionado, aprender cómo programar (o pagar a alguien) no sólo ahorra una cantidad ENORME de tiempo en la sala de control de la simulación , sino que permite al facilitador y al técnico (si está disponible) poder permanecer centrado en las actividades de los estudiantes. Al conocer el algoritmo con el gráfico y ser capaz de hacer clic rápidamente en “1, 2, 3, 2, 4” a través de las diversas etapas de la escena significa que pasará más tiempo participando con los estudiantes y menos tiempo reajustando seis diferentes signos vitales cada vez que desee moverlo entre etapas. Así, los escenarios de 10-15 minutos se convierten en escenarios de 20-25 minutos porque el facilitador esta enfocado en las cosas equivocadas. La programación vale cada dificil minuto ya que la eficiencia de su Programa de Simulación aumenta diez veces con cada escenario programado con éxito y permanente.

Mientras que la compra de paquetes a granel puede ayudarte a comenzar, ajustar estos escenarios a su plan de estudios específico todavía tiene que hacerse a mano. En mi opinión, un escenario comprado de un paquete le lleva a alrededor del 80% del camino – ya que la mayor parte del trabajo de preparación, algoritmo y las notas de debriefing han sido producidas para usted. Sin embargo, para llegar a los requisitos específicos del plan de estudios de su programa, tomar estos escenarios y ajustarlos es absolutamente necesario. Y como he dicho anteriormente, algunos de los paquetes son sólo “en escenarios de papel”, lo que significa que al final todavía tiene que programar en su sistema de maniquí de todos modos. ¿Estaría interesado en apoyo de programación?
