Many medical simulators involve a computer connected to a plastic simulation of the relevant anatomy. [ citation needed ] Sophisticated simulators of this type employ a life size mannequin that responds to injected drugs and can be programmed to create simulations of life-threatening emergencies. In other simulations, visual components of the procedure are reproduced by computer graphics techniques, while touch-based components are reproduced by haptic feedback devices combined with physical simulation routines computed in response to the user's actions. Medical simulations of this sort will often use 3D CT or MRI scans of patient data to enhance realism. Some medical simulations are developed to be widely distributed (such as web-enabled simulations  and procedural simulations  that can be viewed via standard web browsers) and can be interacted with using standard computer interfaces, such as the keyboard and mouse .
Description: Students respond to a code blue situation from a lecture. The simulation guide has two options for ending. The patient can be discovered to have a DNR order, or the patient is successfully resuscitated (as in the video). Depending on which one is used, the appropriate order sheet would be included in the scenario set up. The roles and function description is an additional document that can be used for student prep.
Student Level: Intermediate/Advanced

Having been blessed with the opportunity to travel to the world and tour thousands of healthcare simulation programs in dozens of countries, its rare to come across a system dedicated to innovation in every aspect of its operations. Brisbane’s Clinical Skills Development Service, directed by Dylan Campher, is one such program, with a business model [...] 182 Read More September 14, 2017 CAE Healthcare Shares SSH President’s Insights for Use of Simulation in Nursing CAE Healthcare recently shared a piece from Christine Park, ., current president of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare, about the role that simulation plays within the nursing profession and in improving patient safety (published in the online edition of Media Planet’s “Future of Health Care News”).
