The COVID-19 crisis has impacted healthcare facilities around the world, placing a burden on resources and training. There is now more than ever, an urgent need to train medical professionals in ICU protocols quickly and efficiently. New York has been one of the centers of the outbreak, and caseloads continue to increase.
The SIU School of Medicine and the Memorial Medical Center, located in Springfield, IL have designed a program for high school and college students as well as community members interested in learning more about a career in healthcare.
Last month in Washington D.C., ACEP Scientific Assembly exhibitor, Simulab Corporation, showcased a prototype of their new tactile, flexible and notably realistic airway management training system, AirwayMan™. AirwayMan is the much anticipated result of Simulab’s collaborations with leading healthcare educators. It offers a high-fidelity, soft-tissue training solution that allows users to safely master a full range of basic to advanced airway skills—from intubation to needle and surgical cricothyroidotomy.
Simulab Corporation, a medical simulation company based in Seattle, WA will unveil a prototype of their new ultra-realistic airway management training system, AirwayMan™ at booth #2607 at the ACEP Scientific Assembly in Washington, D.C. this Sunday. Simulab’s team of product engineers collaborated with leading educators to deliver a high-fidelity, soft-tissue training solution that allows learners to focus on deliberate practice and master basic to advanced airway skills like oral and nasal intubation, and needle and surgical cricothyroidotomy.
Congratulations and best wishes to Ochsner Simulation Center, in New Orleans, LA. On October 2nd, the center held a much anticipated ribbon cutting ceremony and open house, both of which Simulab was proud to attend. With the full support of Ochsner Senior Management, and under the guidance of Medical Director Michael Smith, MD, MBA, CPE, FACHE and Assistant Vice President of Undergraduate Medical Education Carl Tholen, Med, the new facility is notable for several reasons.
An 83 year-old-man with an implanted pacemaker suffers a syncopal event after riding the Incredible Hulk Coaster at Universal Orlando. His family takes him to the Emergency Room where they discover complete 3rd degree heart block and no visible pacer spikes. He is unresponsive to the delivery of atropine and transcutaneous pacing. What happened next might surprise you.
TraumaMan is at the Physician's Assistant Education Forum in Washington D.C. (booth 104). Jay Amrien, PA program director at Bryant University, is having fun putting in a chest tube.
This tweet from one of the organizers of SimWars unsolicited..... and says it all. We were so excited to have PacerMan selected to be part of the finals. Kudos to our Product Management team at Simulab for nailing this much needed training system just in time for the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) Annual Scientific Assembly in Boston.
TraumaMan continues to make his way around the world. His latest destination is the Jigme Dorji Wangchuck National Referral Hospital (JDWNRH) in Thimphu, Bhutan. TraumaMan was donated by the Bhutan Foundation. The Bhutan Foundation is the only American not-for-profit organization that is wholly focused on the benefit of the country and people of Bhutan, bridging understanding between our two countries and beyond.
