Clinical Simulation Center (CSC)

The Simulators

Using manikins in clinical simulations allows health care practitioners and students to “practice on plastic” first. These life-like manikins simulate heart tones and other vital cues that, when connected to monitors, provide real-time information to learners. By practicing clinical skills in a safe and regulated environment, health care providers can sharpen their assessment and treatment abilities.

Our center is equipped with a large array of simulators, ranging from low-fidelity task trainers to high-fidelity computerized manikins, some of which are described below.

Task Trainers

Task Trainers are used for teaching and practicing skills, competencies, and procedures. They include torsos for learning Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, arms designed with normal blood vessels for learning placement and care of intravenous lines, models with surgical wounds for learning suturing and wound care, back and spinal trainers for learning lumbar punctures.

The CSC is equipped with the following task trainers, listed with their associated skills. Numbers in parentheses indicate available quantity for each.
