What Components Do You Need for a High Fidelity Medical Simulation? What Components Do You Need for a High Fidelity Medical Simulation?

High fidelity simulation centers use a combination of hardware and software to reproduce realistic medical training scenarios

Medical simulation is the new way for educators to perform training in situational environments without impacting real patients’ lives or placing students in circumstances they may not be prepared for yet. In simulation scenarios, medical students can practice applicable skills ranging from checking vitals to performing surgery while learning how to work and communicate with a team. A simulation lab provides interaction, engagement and training in a safe and controlled environment.

In the world of healthcare simulation, fidelity describes the degree to which a simulated scenario represents reality. High-fidelity medical simulation includes a combination of hardware and software that works together to create a highly realistic scenario for students to participate in, whether that’s giving a patient an annual check-up or performing an emergency procedure.

Today, we’re going to explore some of the components that facilities need for high fidelity simulation. Please note that all simulation labs have custom needs — your facility may or may not require all the components listed below, depending on your primary goals and budget. If you have further questions, please call the team at Level 3 Audiovisual, and we can help you design a simulation system that best meets your needs. We proudly serve commercial organizations and healthcare facilities in Miami, FL, and across the country.

How Do You Get Certified for Simulation? How Do You Get Certified for Simulation?

Getting certified for simulation isn't what you think.

Simulation certification is still new to Healthcare. As the simulation community has grown, defining the standards to ensure someone is qualified to perform a specific task has been at times, challenging. Since healthcare simulation centers can be found in pre-hospital programs, hospital-based programs, nursing schools, and medical schools the challenge is setting standards for certification that can be applied to all the different job environments. As the profession for simulation technicians and specialist has grown so has the movement to establish this group within the structure of simulation programs. Typically, physicians, nurses, and educators have filled most of the roles in a simulation center.

“How much training do I need to operate the AV system?”

This is the first question I asked myself when starting at a healthcare simulation center. From working with patient simulator’s and skill trainers to programming vital signs and scenario’s, healthcare simulation can have a big learning curve for those just starting out in this field. The area I felt needed the majority of focus was navigating AV systems in healthcare simulation.
