The Human Patient Simulator, manufactured by CAE Healthcare, is a life-size intubatable manikin linked to a computer. This integration of electro-mechanics into the manikin makes the users' experience very realistic.
Computerized mathematical models of human physiology and a feedback-based pharmacokinetics system assist the manikin in responding in real time to all user's interventions. The human patient simulator can be connected to a full suite of anesthesia machines and appropriate scenarios can be programmed. In addition, separate event, drug and physiologic logs are auto-recorded during usage and can be viewed offline.
Among the equipment's features are:
