HealthySim was on hand at IMSH 2017 to interview Simulab about their new PacerMan — the world’s first high-fidelity simulator for immersive transvenous pacing from insertion to capture using your own equipment! Check out this 4-minute video about this innovative new product:
About PacerMan from Simulab
PacerMan exponentially improves your training. It’s the first and only high-fidelity simulator for immersive transvenous pacing—from needle insertion to capture using all the clinical equipment. The system offers a one of a kind opportunity to practice the entire procedure—including identifying intrinsic bradycardias, assessing intracardiac waveforms and manipulating output and rate with a pacing generator.
Simulab’s patented SimuSensor technology powers PacerMan, replicating a true clinical workflow by allowing the learner to use their own equipment to trigger patient responses on a simulated patient monitor. PacerMan can be set on Instructor Mode, with specifically chosen scenario parameters or randomized Student Mode. Both settings include options for multiple outcomes and offer hands-on learning anytime, anywhere. Investing in the PacerMan System is empowering. Clinicians can finally practice the whole emergent procedure in a safe, simulated setting —providing a new opportunity to improve patient outcomes and save lives.
“PacerMan is an outstanding resource for teaching transvenous pacer placement. There’s nothing else like it. We have now taught TVPacer placement to 150 physicians and have found it extremely valuable!” Jeffrey Tabas, MD Professor of Clinical Emergency Medicine UCSF School of Medicine.
