Anesthesia SimSTAT is a new virtual learning environment, screen-based training modality for anesthesia management.
As part of a continuing collaboration between the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) and CAE Healthcare, the development of the Anesthesia SimSTAT training modules provide physician anesthesiologists with advanced, online learning in the emergency anesthesia management.
The Anesthesia SimSTAT-Appendectomy training module grants learners the opportunity to navigate within a 3-D, fully functioning virtual operating room. By participating in a series of high-fidelity simulation scenarios (with a realistic patient avatar who responds appropriately to clinical interactions) learners are able to develop essential skills, receive real-time feedback and assess their performance during and after training.
Ronald Levy, M.D., member of ASA’s Editorial Board for Interactive Computer-Based Education, says
The Anesthesia SimSTAT technology is the future of continuing medical education for anesthesia providers in that it enables the user to improve and test their knowledge in a dynamic virtual online environment.”
