High Fidelity Simulation

Human Patient Manikins provide students, trainees and experienced practitioners with guided opportunities to learn, practice and have skills measured in a risk-free environment.

iCELS has an extensive inventory of Human Patient Manikins which represents the span of human development - from newborn to toddler to child to adult, both male and female.   These manikins replicate a full range of biological actions including heart rate, lung sounds, pulse, and O2 rate.  A skilled simulation technician can dynamically control the manikin’s clinical readings and can program enhancements like voices, coughs and wheezing for adult manikins.  With such an extensive inventory of equipment, we can simulate a robust variety of clinical scenarios, allowing our learners opportunity for routine and deliberate practice in a controlled environment.  Clinical scenarios can range from mock codes to clinical decision-making encounters in acute care and trauma settings.  Faculty and instructors can tailor objectives towards team-based communication and collaboration skills, as well as individual diagnostic skills.

All of our simulation rooms have video capabilities that allow us to record the learners and play back the encounters for review in debriefing or in individualized coaching sessions.
