Simulation in Action


Simulation has many uses. At left, a patient simulator is prepped as a therapeutic hypothermia patient being prepared for transfer to the ICU. In this use, clinicians were able to use the simulator to prepare for instituting a new therapeutic hypothermia protocol. All needed vascular access was obtained, the simulator had the cooling device attached, temperature monitoring was accomplished by inserting a temperature sensing Foley catheter, and appropriate medications and fluids were administered. When compared to traditional classroom orientation for preparing these clinicians for the new protocol, simulation offered a live, hand-on experience that let these clinicians see exactly how their patient should look upon leaving the emergency department.
