Human Patient Simulators
The infant simulator is a complete reproduction of an actual 6- to 9-month-old infant that measures 25.75 inches tall and weighs 16.25 pounds. The infant has phonation features such as crying, cooing and giggling. It is designed to support a wide range of clinical interventions with airway trauma features including swollen tongue, upper airway obstruction, laryngospasm and bronchial occlusion.
A complete reproduction of an actual 6-year-old child, the pediatric simulator measures 48 inches tall, weighs 38 pounds and is fully operational in the supine, lateral and sitting positions. It offers tremendous realism with features such as eyelids with blink settings and three manually adjusted pupil settings, including normal, pinpoint and dilated, that can change during a scenario. The simulator also exhales air and CO2; produces fluids such as tears, drool and ear secretions; and has six bilateral pulses, defibrillation and bowel sounds.
The adult simulator is a full-size reproduction of an adult male or female patient. It demonstrates clinical signs such as heart, breath and bowel sounds, palpable pulses, chest excursions and airway patency. It also has pupils that automatically dilate and constrict in response to light, thumbs that twitch in response to a peripheral nerve stimulator, automatic recognition and response to administered drugs and drug dosages, variable lung compliance and airways resistance, automatic response to needle decompression of a tension pneumothorax, chest tube drainage and pericardiocentesis, and automatic control of urine output.
