New HPS Video Features Live Simulation at Mount Sinai School of Medicine HELPS Center
CAE Healthcare filmed a live HPS simulation at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine HELPS Center in November, 2012. The training session was offered to third-year anesthesia residents from four medical institutions in New York City, and the rare but life-threatening scenario was an oxygen line failure during a robotic prostatectomy. In addition to resident training, the HELPS Center offers Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesia (MOCA) courses, professional retraining and competency assessment for medical licensing bodies.
This video highlights the strengths of the HPS for anesthesia training. The HPS is the only patient simulator that truly breathes, consuming oxygen and producing carbon dioxide. While connected to anesthesia machines, the HPS can uptake and excrete anesthetic gases, produce accurate physiological responses to treatments and interface with real clinical monitors and equipment.
