iSimulate Sponsors Award of 2017 Recipient of Street Medicine Society Award

JEMS and PennWell Corporation Announce the 2017 Recipient of John P. Pryor, MD/ Street Medicine Society Award

Last week Jeremy T. Cushman, MD, MS, EMT-P, was awarded the 2017 John P. Pryor, MD/Street Medicine Society Award at the EMS Today conference in Salt Lake City, UT which was sponsored by iSimulate. ohn P. Pryor, MD, FACS, an EMS physician, was killed on Dec. 25, 2008, while serving in Iraq. Dr. Pryor posthumously received the first award in his name at the 2009 EMS Today Conference. Each year the SMS awards a physician who has come up through the ranks as an EMS provider and constantly demonstrates a sincere and ongoing dedication to the betterment of EMS through clinical excellence or educational, logistical and/or humanitarian initiatives.

The award, sponsored by iSimulate, recognizes Dr. Cushman’s exemplary service to the field of emergency medicine and, specifically, emergency medical services (EMS). In 2006 Dr. Cushman became the medical director for the Gates Fire District in New York. Today he represents almost 30 fire and 10 ambulance agencies in a county with a population of 750,000 people. JEMS (Journal of Emergency Medical Services) seeks to improve patient care in the prehospital setting and promote positive change in EMS by delivering information and education from industry leaders, change makers and emerging voices. Dr. Cushman has been instrumental in developing, coordinating and implementing many programs and policies for his agencies over the last 10 years, including:

  • First responder naloxone procedure and delivery;
  • The Check & Inject New York project, which has saved millions of dollars across the state by having EMS use syringes to deliver epinephrine;
  • A county-wide firefighter rehabilitation and safety program; and
  • A program for influenza and Ebola preparedness that allows for an appropriate response without exposing responders to unnecessary risk.

Additionally, Dr. Cushman revised the Gates Fire Districts’ Quality Assurance and Quality Inspection program for patient care reports, creating a real-time process that provides valuable education to EMTs and assisted the 9-1-1 center with the emergency medical dispatch coding program to ensure responses optimize patient outcome.

Founded in July 1995, the mission of the Street Medicine Society (SMS) is to provide an informal forum for the growing group of physicians who got their start as EMS professionals, providing inspiration and expertise for the industry and to serve as advocates and mentors for the modern EMS professional.

Mobile “Pop Up” Simulation Lab From MDT

prosimex mobile simulation lab

Ever wish you could “pop up” a simulation room to provide training environments as you needed, where you needed? Check out this new innovative product called ProSIMex from MDT and Inaditus and Immersive Technologies. The MDT group is comprised of immersive technicians, IT programmers, web design specialists, educationalists, along with healthcare and business professionals. MDT Global Solutions provides “innovative products and training to the Medical, Disaster and Technical Rescue industry”.

About the Immersive Classroom:

Conceptually the team has designed a portable immersive classroom with live video on 3 walls which is interactive through touch wall technology. The team can create any environment in a 4×4 meter space including Street, riot, fire, road, house, ambulance, emergency department, theatre unit, intensive care, ward, or just about any other environment. All of which can be changed with the click of a mouse!

MDT Managing Director David Halliwell MSc Paramedic FIfL says “We are also linking proSIMex with other tools that we believe make for real learning including iSimulate’s ALSi.”

iSimulate ALSi Patient Monitor Continues to Innovate Healthcare Simulation Space

simulation monitor healthcare

During IMSH 2014, iSimulate’s CEO Peter McKie introduced me to all the latest updates for their patient monitoring system, which can dramatically increase the realism of your low-fidelity manikins or standardized patients. With the option to purchase an ongoing licensing agreement, users can take full advantage of all these recent updates and those still yet to come. Watch the video to see why iSimulate’s ALSi has continued to innovate healthcare simulation:

What is ALSi?

ALSi provides an economical, highly advanced and realistic patient condition simulation package. It is so easy to use you’ll be up and running in less than two minutes and can act as a fully featured multi parameter monitor, AED & defibrillator.

Run off only two iPads, its simple setup makes it great for in-situ training. ALSi provides a super realistic simulation experience, enabling hi fidelity simulation even in low fidelity situations. 

iSimulate is the Platinum Sponsor of SimGHOSTS 2014 Australia, taking place June 25th-27th at the University of the Sunshine Coast.

Updates Available Now:

  • Scenarios Now Run in Line: Ability to add more annotations faster.
  • Timed Events: Build in a delay to changed vital signs before they take place.
  • New Waveforms: CO2 and a new range of wavelengths for ECG.
  • Improved Interface: Easier to see and manipulate the software.
  • Send Data to Second Screen: X-ray scans, data, and other forms can now be sent to the learner iPad.
  • Sounds: Import your own recorded sounds to add more fidelity to the learner environment

Watch the video to learn about pricing and purchasing options!

Interview:

Lance: Chad, what is iSimulate’s mission?

Chad: Our goal is to reduce the impact of a simulation lab program budget while increasing the effectiveness of your program. ALSi is a product based on the iPad platform which is designed to give you a top of the line high fidelity simulation that you have come to expect from your standard medical manikin manufacturers, with needing the costly manikin.  Simply, we can put patient vitals on everything – from low-fidelity to no-fidelity manikins that no longer work at all, or standardized patients and confederate patients acting out in the bed.

Lance: I would think it could work for with task trainers as well for increasing fidelity. Learners look to the patient monitor a lot for patient cues during healthcare simulations, like noticing the Sp02 has dropped, which can be provided by the ALSi system without needing the full expensive investment into high-fidelity manikins.

Chad: Exactly. You will get a higher ROI of your manikins because you can take low or mid fidelity manikins and make them high fidelity. The other key cost-saving point is that its not just a patient monitor, but an AED and a defibrillator as well.

Lance: Wow that will work well for EMS related scenarios or in-situ programs that need to quickly setup or teardown equipment.

Chad: Not only are these products physically smaller than a manikin, saving your Sim Tech from having to drag heavy equipment around, especially for those programs that have multiple sites. Setup time, you turn it on, connect it to the wifi and go. There’s no complicated working with the network to makE sure the manikin is connected to the laptop to the monitor to your control etc.. ALSi is very easy to use so you don’t have to be a Sim Tech to use the tablets.

Lance: Yes I was noticing that while playing around with the software that it is very comparable to using any other iPad software with a lot of sweeps or touches with an easy to follow generated user interface (GUI). The further opportunity here to pre-program, unlike cheap knockoff that might be just a patient monitors, here you not only have the opportunity to change vital signs on the fly but trend overtime, and most importantly, to pre-program these scenarios ahead of time so that you can increase the efficiency of this equipment and your program over time.  I know the cost associated with this product are tied to the learning engagement – can you explain that further?

Chad: Absolutely. Basically there is two parts to the program – there is the facilitator iPad program, which is free to download on the iTunes store, to as many iPads as you want. The only charge comes with the patient monitor license for the learner or student. So if you had a program with 10 facilitators, instead of them all trying to figure out who has the ALSi program and managing the logistics or hunting down who-has-what piece of equipment, they can all have access to the software.

Lance: That also increases the ability to afford this because some programs have already invested in iPad infrastructures.

Chad: Right, and at this time this kit is provided with unlimited updates so all updates for the life of that product are free.
