In October 2014, representatives from the Center for Simulation, Research, and Patient Safety attended the Carilion Shine 2014 poster exhibition at the Hotel Roanoke.They showcased the human patient simulator that is used at Carilion Clinic as a teaching tool. A realistic, full-body adult, wireless patient simulator, SimMan Essential offers comprehensive clinical functionality to teach the core skills of airway, breathing, cardiac and circulation management. By using this simulator educators can provide realistic and engaging scenario based simulation to challenge and evaluate critical thinking and clinical decision-making skills. SimMan Essential provides numerous educational opportunities for its users.
