Next Generation Harvey Cardiopulmonary Simulator Now Available from From Gordon Center | IMSH 2017 Video Interview

cardiopulmonary simulator

At IMSH 2017, HealthySim was on hand to learn all about the Next Generation Harvey, one of the world’s most trusted cardiopulmonary simulators built out of the Michael S. Gordon Center for Research in Medical Education at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. We learned about all the latest features of the Next Generation Harvey which was recently released to the global healthcare simulation market! I have heard from numerous simulation center program directors that if metaphorically speaking, if “the island was sinking, Harvey would be the first manikin I would put in the boat to save!”

About Harvey:

For almost 40 years, Harvey has been a proven simulation system enabling the education, training, and assessment of cardiac assessment skills that are extremely realistic.

The Next Generation Harvey provides cardiopulmonary training for all healthcare providers. This full-size manikin realistically simulates nearly any cardiac disease at the touch of a button. New features include 20 additional patient scenarios – some with faster heart and respiratory rates – for a total of 50 conditions, 10 comprehensive standardized patient cases for teaching and assessment, and enhanced physical exam findings. Additional bilateral arm pulses.

Designed for any Learning Environment

Harvey is portable and may be used in any environment in which a patient may be examined. Small groups with stethophones may learn without an instructor by using the slide programs or the UMedic system. If the area is only for Harvey, it should be about the size of a patient’s small hospital room, so that space is available for “Bedside Rounds.” Harvey may also be used in Clinical Skills or Simulation Training Centres or SP training areas. Larger groups may learn in a lecture hall by using stethophones for auscultation and video projection for observing other physical findings. Most importantly, the main location should be convenient for both students and the person-in-charge. Even though “Harvey” functions as a self-learning device, the nearby presence and availability of knowledgeable faculty and staff will further ensure a successful program.

Next Generation Harvey New Features:

  • 20 customized patient scenarios, including cases at faster heart rates – now 50 cases total
  • 10 comprehensive standardized patient cases that can be used with Harvey for training and OSCEs
  • Additional peripheral pulses for palpation
  • Laptop included with curriculum and option to bundle UMedic e-learning curricula
  • Free subscription to live webinars for ongoing instructor and technical training

S-Scope Stethoscope Simulator from MT Tool – IMSH 2016 Interview

auscultation simulator

At IMSH, HealthySimulation.com was on hand to interview a new auscultation simulator in the guise of a stethoscope. This simple-to-use product allows you to simulate body sounds in-order to teach learners about the specific sounds of the body. We had a chance to check out the included app and considered the ability to add your own sounds very useful! Check out our interview below:

About MT Tool

MT Tool is a group of people with backgrounds in medicine, teaching, manufacturing, and engineering, providing teaching tools to enhance the learning experience of medical students through simulation. After taking on multiple projects related to medical education we recognized an opportunity to provide a more accessible, easier to use simulation stethoscope and app, to bring a more realistic learning experience to a larger number of students. Meanwhile we are ready and willing to take on custom projects, and help bring your medical teaching tool concepts to reality. When it comes to simulation stethoscopes you have choices. The MT S-Scope and App offer a new option for bringing versatility to the classroom and lab. Contact us today with questions or for anything we might be able to help you with.

Included with the S-Scope Kit:

  • MT S-Scope Simulation Stethoscope with built in receiver
  • Smart device preloaded with the original MT S-Scope App
  • Dual USB charging station with cables
  • Durable hard plastic storage and transportation case

Teaching Opportunities:

  • Offers learning in a variety of ways; seeing, listening, and doing
  • Helps students understand the nuances of different sounds
  • Makes it easy for faculty to use in the lab with minimal setup
  • Brings a higher level of fidelity into the testing arena
  • Student can be asked to identify a sound in real time
  • Makes an OSCE encounter more realistic

Once a student places the stethoscope on the appropriate listening post the instructor / SP activates the sound file. The student hears the sounds through the stethoscope. Setup is as simple as pairing the scope with the device that will be used to transmit the sounds. The stethoscope is completely wireless and receives stethoscope sounds from the device at a range of up to 30 feet. Scopes come packaged with device and app, including multiple different heart and lung sounds with optional cases. Instructors are also free to use their own devices and sound files.

The first generation MT S-Scope App allows users to access proprietary stethoscope sound files for a variety of conditions. Case files are included to provide an enhanced learning experience, with complete sets of sounds for each case. Sound files can also be accessed directly for each condition to aid in the evaluation process. The simple and easy to use app is ideal for OSCE encounters. Standardized patients simply tap the appropriate listening post icon to play the corresponding sound through the student’s MT S-Scope. Case files are perfect for teaching. At the end of each case the user is prompted to select an organ, which takes them to the listening post icon map for the selected case. The app gives students a more realistic auscultation experience. Current standard cases include Pneumonia, COPD, Crohn’s Disease and Asthma, which include 33 unique stethoscope recordings.

SSH “Pioneer in Simulation” Award to Dr. Michael Gordon & Opening Plenary by Dr. Kardong-Edgren

ssh pioneer in simulation award

“As a leader in the field, Dr. Michael Gordon has inspired others to dream more, to do more, to learn more, and the become more.”
– Professor Ronald Harden.

Dr. Michael S. Gordon received the Pioneer in Simulation Award this morning at the 15th annual International Meeting for Simulation in Healthcare for his work to create the Harvey Auscultation Manikin, a ground breaking project which enabled for the effective teaching of medical residents through simulation. Through a wonderful video, the audience was toured through Dr. Gordon’s 50 year history which should be made available online soon, which shared his story of perseverance that lead to the Michael S. Gordon Center for Research in Medical Simulation at the University of Miami, funded mostly by patient donors.

Early in his professional career, Dr. Gordon recognized the benefits that technology could bring to primary care, especially to help them better identify heart disease in their patients.

Dr. Gordon suggested “People felt that the Harvey would make Medical Doctors less friendly to patients because the computerized machines didn’t respond. Dr. Gordon’s did a study and found the opposite was true, patients were as satisfied or more by medical professionals who studied with Harvey. Simulators were a valid way to teach people”. SSH knows, its because of Pioneers like him

He provided the audience some major recommendations including:

  1. The Dean must love you.
  2. Secure and keep the consideration for Funds high so your program doesn’t run out of money.
  3. You can further if you go together. You can go faster if you go along. Open doors.
  4. Everything comes down to perseverance. You win because you stay with the program.

Dr. Gordon took the stage to thank the audience for the award and thanked the audience for making simulation appreciate a Global Audience saying “Tell me with whom you walk and I will tell you who you are”. He attributed his success to the family at the center. including Dr. Barry Issenberg. Could never have done what You’ve made my dreams come true, because now I will claim I will walk with you.

The morning then moved to the Opening Plenary by Dr. Suzie Kardon-Edgren PhD, RN, ANEF, CHSE Professor/Director of the Rise Center of RMU and Adjunct Associate Professor at Drexel University’s Medical Simulation program. Suzie started by reminding us that the “Gozilla” of simulation in coming, and its going to win! Dr. Kardon-Edgren went on to showcase the history of medical simulation through pioneer individuals, organizations, journals and more. The number of medical simulation articles continues to grow since the 1970s, reaching 1700 in 2012.

The work that has been accomplished has made simulation have a “New normal”. Indeed each year we expand simulation moves the bar for where we can start from in simulation, furthering where we can all go together.
