SimGHOSTS Australia Opening Keynote by iSimulate “Innovation in Mobile Simulation” – On June 26th 2014, Platinum Sponsor iSimulate  provided the opening keynote address to SimGHOSTS’ first overseas event, hosted at the University of The Sunshine Coast in the Queensland Region of Australia. The keynote was provided by Dr. Anthony Lewis, iSimulate Co-founder and Medical Director. This event was live-streamed for FREE through SimGHOSTS.org around the world for those who could not attend the three day event in Sippy Downs. The story of iSimulate is one of an identified need to make simulation technology easier, cheaper and more flexible that existing technology. Created by Medical Educators in Australia, iSimulate started as a idea and has progressed to become a company who’s products are used across the world. In this keynote, learn why and how two medical educators decided to challenge a simulation philosophy that “ever more” technologically advanced manikins are better. Instead, they took the cumbersome technology out of the manikin and placed it into an user-friendly iPad.

SimGHOSTS Australia Plenary Address by Dylan Campher Sponsored and Reflecting Upon the “Clinical Skills Development Service” - The Queensland Health Clinical Skills Development Service (CSDS) is one of the world’s largest providers of healthcare simulation.

“80% of the Realism for 20% of the cost!”

After covering the NAEMSE plenary session on the status of simulation in EMS education, I toured the exhibit hall and came across Greg Vis from Hudson Simulation Services who was demonstrating a cost effective product to dramatically increase realism! By adding just a strip of sticky velcro to a wall or storage cabinet surface, you can quickly apply these printed canvas styled papered-walls to quickly add fidelity to your simulated learning environments. Now a distributed product from Nasco and Simulaids, SimSpaces has filled the need for affordable solutions for increasing environment fidelity.

About SimSpaces:

As the practice of simulation has expanded to wide range of settings the need to create context rich learning environments grows alongside . However, budgets for space improvements are often not keeping pace with demand. Simulation settings now not only include simulation centers but may also include classrooms, mobile sites and everything in between. Giving these locations the immersive effect of authentic clinical settings can be challenging. SimSpaces graphic panels can transform any location into attractive and realistic ICU, ER, clinic or Homecare environments without breaking the bank. Creativity can be substituted for large budgets and still achieve a high degree of illusion. To view their available designs and learn more visit SimSpaces.com !

Gaumard Scientific Completes First U.S. Installations of New Victoria Birthing Simulator

noelle birthing simulator

Today I received word that Gaumard’s new birthing manikin “Victoria S2200″ has been successfully installed in the first of many simulation centers. Think of Victoria as the “2.0” version of Noelle – with features looking so lifelike you are sure to keep questioning if what you are seeing is actually a manikin. Victoria can simulate low and high risk deliveries with an endless variation of clinical presentations and she can do so with precise repeatability. The patented fetal delivery system, powerful control software and a library of preprogrammed scenarios combine to allow learners to resolve situations in a safe environment, improve performance in specific situations and gain valuable experience. As a manufacturing pioneer in realistic manikin skins, it’s no wonder that Gaumard continues to push our industry to new heights. I hope to see Victoria at ASPIH UK this November, and for sure at IMSH 2015 New Orleans!

Gaumard Scientific Company today announced completion of the first U.S. installations of its new Victoria birthing simulator. The installation sites are:

  • Adena Health System, PACCAR Medical Education Center, Chillicothe, Ohio
  • Carolinas HealthCare System, Carolinas Simulation Center, Charlotte, N.C.
  • Billings Clinic, Simulation and Experiential Learning Lab (SELL), Billings, Montana

Introduced earlier this year, Victoria is the latest addition to the family of NOELLE maternal and neonatal care simulators. Victoria has a patented, precision life-like delivery and birthing mechanism that births a life-like, full-term baby with sophisticated monitoring capabilities. The Victoria system includes comprehensive clinical scenarios, including shoulder dystocia and postpartum hemorrhage. With articulating endoskeletons and silky smooth elastomeric skin, Victoria is the most realistic, fully tetherless and wireless maternal/fetal simulator for use in actual point of care training.

John Eggert, Gaumard’s executive vice president, said: “Hospital administrators, insurance companies and educators are looking for ways to improve patient care, reduce medical errors and reduce costs, especially in the area of obstetrics. More than 200,000 Americans die from preventable medical errors each year, and the cost to the healthcare system exceeds $17 billion. One third of medical errors by trainees involved the care of obstetrics and gynecology patients. When medical errors happen in obstetrics, settlements of cases may cost millions of dollars. Victoria represents true innovation in patient simulation based on input we obtained from health care educators worldwide. Most importantly, Victoria enables the simulation of care as it would be in real practice and stands as a platform on which Gaumard will develop other simulation applications.”

About Gaumard Scientific

Gaumard Scientific Company has designed, manufactured and marketed simulators for health care education for more than 60 years. Users worldwide – the military, emergency medical services, major teaching hospitals and nursing schools – recognize Gaumard products for their innovation in simulation in the pre-hospital, obstetrics and gynecology, surgical and nursing care segments. In 2000, Gaumard launched the revolutionary family of NOELLE maternal and neonatal care simulators that changed the way training is conducted. In 2004, Gaumard pioneered the use of fully tetherless technology with the introduction of the family of HAL simulators. In 2014, the company introduced Victoria™, its most advanced, mobile maternal/fetal simulator as part of the NOELLE family. Gaumard manufactures its products at its world headquarters in Miami.
