2017 Version of ADAM-X Patient Simulator Has Latest Product Upgrades From Medical-X

adamx medical simulator

Check out the latest version of ADAM-X from Medical-X, a high-fidelity patient simulator which we’ve been told has  “the highest standard of realism in form and function, designed to take training to another level!” Adam-X can be used wireless and tetherless, in the hospital, on-the-go and in an outside setting. The scenarios and stand-alone procedure practices are immersive and easy-to-use. Through its realism in looks and feels, vital signs, interactivity, procedural and scenario training, the Adam-X can and will be treated as an actual patient. Providing doctors and nurses, all (para-)medical staff, access to a true learning experience.

ADAM-X Features:

Realistic anatomy: ADAM-X is a reproduction of a skeletal and anatomical structure of a human with distinctive characteristics and features. It is human-sized, and has a very realistic skin. ADAM-X has automatic blinking depending on physiological status, as well as a physiological reaction of the pupils to light and to touch. The teeth are replaceable and the tongue of the ADAM-X can swell.

Training: The ADAM-X is ideal for ALS training, scenario training and medical treatment training. Because the ADAM-X is completely wireless and tetherless, and has realistic human proportions, it is very portable and ideal for on-site training. During CPR training, the accuracy of the hand placement is tracked, as well as the depth and rate of compression.

Sounds: ADAM-X has a wide variety of sounds. Auscultation is possible with 8 points of breath sounds, 5 points of heart sounds and 14 points of lung sounds on the front of the mannequin, with the possibility of an independent set of options of the sounds in 4 areas. There is also the possibility of auscultation on the back of the mannequin. Breath sounds are independent and are related to ventilation of each lung. ADAM-X has speech, and can say “yes”, “no” and some some interjections. Also featured are guttural and coughing sounds.

Cardiovascular system: The ADAM-X has a bilaterally palpable pulse on the carotid artery, the femoral artery, the radial artery, the dorsal artery of the foot, the popliteal artery and the posterior tibialis.

Pulmonology: ADAM-X has a very realistic respiratory tract. It has fully independent right and left lungs, and ventilation of the lung automatically leads to the appropriate sounds of breathing, chest excursion and pulmonary gas exchange. The occurrence of apnea or hypoventilation, along with the low fraction of oxygen in the inspired gas mixture, lead to corresponding physiological changes: the hypercapnia, the hypoxemia, the decrease of the SpO2 and the tachycardia. Ventilation of the lungs at a positive pressure or spontaneous ventilation restoration returns ADAM-X to the breath with an appropriate amount of respiratory rate. ADAM-X also features chest flotation, and the resistance of the airway changes accordingly.

Additional Features

  • Work with a real electrocardiogram and with a real defibrillator
  • Possibility to connect a real human patient monitor and a real anesthesia machine
  • Training of normal course of the anesthesia
  • Training of complications of the general character in the anesthesiology
  • Unique pharmaceutics system: the ADAM-X recognizes not only the administered drug, but also the received dose, a change of the vital parameters occurs correspondingly
  • Create more scenarios with the scenario editor
  • Realistic feedback force

Simulaids Unveils Industry’s First Patient Communication Simulator ALEX

alex patient communication simulator simulaids

Recently we covered the innovative ‘Next Gen Geri’ as seen at IMSH 2017 — but even more recently Simulaids unveiled the industries first “Patient Communication Simulator (PCS)”! Newly launched, ALEX recognizes questions and responds with scripted answers related to his condition allowing simulation educators to use speech synthesis or your own voice for responses. Alex is also the first patient simulator with an HD camera streaming live, low latency video from his right eye. Debrief with a patient point-of-view experience! Check out this video below to see more:

  • Develop critical thinking, decision making and priority setting skills
  • Conduct initial patient assessments and clinical interviews
  • Acquire foundational nursing skills
  • Meet high-level simulation goals
  • Evaluate Nursing competencies in procedures such as injections, IV administration, and wound care
Core Features of Alex:
  • Breathing: Moving chest in sync with set respiratory rate. Set various respiratory profiles with varying depth of breath.
  • Airway: Oral, digital, and nasal intubation, as well as all other standard airway procedures.
  • BVM Ventilation: Rising chest measures and records airflow over time when done during CPR.
  • Circulation: Pulses (carotid x 2, brachial x 2, radial x 2 and pedal x 2): sensing touch and providing pulse sensation in sync with set heart rate and blood pressure.
  • CPR: CPR abilities with metrics of chest compression force/depth and timing. Automatic detection and logging of CPR procedures.
  • IV Injection Arm: Practice intravenous injections and positioning a butterfly catheter. Puncture veins and dorsal venous network of hand.
  • Patient Monitor: Direct control of HR, RR, SpO2 and TEMP to set target value and transition length.
  • Waveforms: Normal and abnormal simulated cardio, respiratory and SpO2 waveforms in virtual patient monitor.
  • Blood Pressure: Measure blood pressure with any sphygmomanometer attached to the included SmartCuff™, equipped with wireless pressure sensor.
  • IRISCAM: An HD camera built into the eye of ALEX, providing digital video for live streaming and recorded review. (patent pending)
  • SPEECH: Advanced speech recognition and speech synthesis to support fully automated medical interviewing exercises. (patent pending)
  • SOUNDS: Listen to normal or various abnormal lung/heart/bowel sounds and Korotkoff sounds using any stethoscope when attached to the included SmartScope™ accessory.

Simulaids began producing trauma moulage products in the town of Woodstock in 1963 and now operates out of an 83,000-square-foot facility in Saugerties New York.
