'Smart-mannequins' can bleed, vomit and give birth

Health Care's come a long way in the

last 30 years to move from old school

learning to modern day state-of-the-art

teaching so this is a trauma patient

he has a s4e the patient arrives at

Saint Michael's Hospital in critical


Ashley can you please call the blood

bank and see if they have four units

cross-matched and ready to go he was in

a car accident and his hemorrhaging

internally the doctors need to find the

source of the bleed fast can you see

where it's coming from

okay can you can you try to find where

you get the bleeding see if you can

clamp it anything from this plea have a

crisis the patient's is in v-fib okay so

can you please pack we're starting

compressions and get the pads on please

call them for a massive transfusion

protocol okay can you please pack try to

control the room as much as you can

okay the pads are on charging okay we're

gonna deliver it for a shock Henley

whenever you're ready to just stop

everybody clear I'm clear you're clear

okay everyone's career is shocking shock


okay we're gonna churches these three

units we're gonna do compressions for

another minute or two and we're gonna

check pulse everybody away we're gonna

chill I'm shocked okay everybody's clear

I'm clear the road is clear okay shock

Christina can you please check for a



okay we can sup compressions now thank

you good job they come here weekly every

Monday afternoon for about four hours a

lot of it is about how we communicate so

teamwork how we do a task management how

situation awareness it's really

impressive how realistic it can be it

might be like a silicone or something

but it's just like very melty so I

apologize that it looks gross here we

have artificial blood we have different

organs in here and actually under the

operating room bed we have a bucket of

blood with a pump and it actually

continues to pump blood through the

trainer so that way even as they suction

the blood it continues to fill up until

they've done the intervention that would

I would fix the bleed it's quite

realistic and so recently we did a

scenario they last about ten minutes and

at the end we said okay everybody of the

scenarios finished and they didn't want

to stop because they were so engaged

they had an emotional connection so they

they wanted to keep going so we said oh

really it's over now these mannequins

are so realistic they breathe they blink

and they're even warm to the touch

Wow in his hand yeah we don't want to

simulate a death in a very junior

resident because that might be

overwhelming emotionally in psychologic

and even impact your career so we're

running simulations in this facility as

well as across the hospital at the

bedside in different departments of the

hospital and thousands of people's staff

staff physicians nurses different health

disciplines students they all go through

simulation activities it's so much more

than the world's most intense game of

operation what's learned in a sim lab

can influence Hospital design practical

things that got changed where the layout

of carts the layout of the room where do

you put the clock simple things but

simple things that matter when time

matters most

and once the hospital or the rooms are

built we go in again because there's

still ways that rehearsing or practicing

a clean

Levent can make our systems that much

better that's precious extra seconds as

much as we can do of research and

finding ways of using simulation as an

educational educational tool that can

actually advance medicine is really what

I'm looking for anywhere to think Saint

Mike's is also looking for
