What patient simulators are featured at the Center?
While it's rare for a community health system to open a simulation lab with more than one or two simulators, Southeast Georgia Health System invested in nine highly evolved simulators, many of which can speak, cry, sweat, breathe and perform other human functions. They can bleed, give birth, and have seizures and heart attacks. This level of realism provides exposure to complexities that help medical professionals sharpen their skills. In the end, the Center provides the highest-caliber training possible for the region's health care professionals.
The simulators we use include:
- SimMan® 3G - A full-body simulator that emits heart, lung and bowel sounds. He talks, sweats, blinks and breathes, and can be programmed to simulate a wide variety of illnesses and trauma.
- NOELLE® S575 - For normal and emergency obstetric and neonatal simulation.
- Newborn HAL® - A newborn simulator that has a pulse and breathes. He also exhibits color and vital signs that are responsive to hypoxic events and interventions.
- SimBaby™ - An advanced, do-it-all baby manikin for practicing intubation, defibrillation, stomach decompression, CPR, EKG monitoring and more.
- SimJunior® - A high-end pediatric manikin for emergency and medical/surgical training.
- Grandma Chase & Convalescent Kelly - Two simulators that are ideal for exercises in patient transfer/handling and hygiene, bandaging fingers and toes, administering liquid feedings, catheter insertion, ostomy care and all basic care techniques.
- Nurse Anne - A simulator that has a head with anatomical landmarks, a trachea and esophagus. Also includes lungs and stomach for the practice of nasogastric or orogastric tube insertion, trach care and suctioning.
