High-Fidelity Manikin Simulators
Outfitted with state-of-the-art simulation equipment, the center's high-fidelity manikins use computer controls to manage and control the physiological appearances of patients undergoing health crises.
Controlled by trained simulation lab technicians, these simulators can replicate:
- Spontaneous breathing and the ability to breathe for the patient with a bag or ventilator
- Real-time display of electronically monitored information, such as electrocardiogram and oxygen saturation
- Pulse, heart sound, breath sound, pupil size, and pupil response to light
- Obstruction of various parts of the airway
A History of Medical Manikins
While these high-fidelity manikins can blink, breath, and even 'talk, these tools haven't always been this advanced. One family knows this first hand with a vintage manikin they lovingly call McTavish. Read their story here.
