Emory University School of Medicine
High-Fidelity Simulation Space for Clinical Care
October 11, 2022
Mannequin-based simulation uses high-fidelity simulators. These simulators are mannequins that physiologically respond to treatment similar to what would occur in real-life patients. The simulated patient can be assessed by a learner who can initiate treatment with a resultant response, and perform a variety of procedures. This is done in a controlled learning environment that mimics the real-life patient care setting but is safe for the patient and learner. The Emory University School of Medicine has several types of simulation experiences: high fidelity, full-sized mannequins, task trainers, actors that portray patients (standardized patients), and virtual reality for surgical procedures.
Registrants should refer to their confirmation email for the “Modifying Your Registration” link and instructions. If you cannot locate your meeting registration confirmation email, please contact us to request for it to be resent. New annual meeting registrants may simply add a tour during the registration process.
Each of the simulation rooms are flexible spaces that can be manipulated to incorporate a multitude of scenarios. The simulators can create real-life teaching environments that range from outpatient examination rooms to inpatient rooms in areas such as the emergency department, intensive care unit, labor and delivery suite, and an operating theatre. Standardized actors can be incorporated to increase the realism of these environments.
All the simulations can be observed in real time through the control room or reviewed using a web-based broadcast which can be live or delayed. Evaluation software is available for the assessment of student performance. Two large clinical skills spaces can be used for a variety of training programs and as lecture spaces. The center has two multimedia classrooms for debriefing sessions. In addition, we have additional space for Harvey, a high-fidelity heart sound simulator.
