Market Insights

Rising Awareness of Simulation Education

Different organizations perform various patient simulation awareness activities. For instance, in 2017, the FLASIC organization was formed by ALASIC to act as a federation of smaller regional simulation societies, which now manages almost 1,000 members from 7 different societies who can collaborate and share via an online network. Considering the importance of patient safety, many universities are also opening patient simulation centers. Healthcare simulation centers are constantly being unveiled across the US and globally. For instance, in 2019, the University of Illinois, Chicago, opened three healthcare simulation centers. These will be run individually by the university’s College of Medicine, College of Pharmacy, and College of Nursing. The simulation centers have specialized trained doctors, advanced and computerized manikins of all ages, and simulated conditions to help students and healthcare professionals practice clinical skills. These training centers will also help with communication and decision-making skills and provide hands-on medical diagnosis, treatment, and care training. It is estimated that it will provide more than 50,000 hours of hands-on learning for nearly 20,000 learners working or pursuing careers in the health sciences. In 2022, Gaumard Scientific’s HAL S5301, the world's most advanced interdisciplinary patient simulator, was installed at the Emory University Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing's new state-of-the-art simulation and learning center. This was the first commercial installation of HAL S5301.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Patient Simulators?

A patient simulator is a manikin that is used to train healthcare professionals and students to study human anatomy or function (physiology). Patient simulators can also be combined with computer software, replicating normal and abnormal bodily reactions to events, such as asthma attacks, and therapeutic interventions, including drug side effects. Simulated blood can be pumped into the veins through an intravenous (IV) tube. Patient simulators are life-like manikins that react physiologically like a normal human being. The simulators are specifically designed with respiratory therapy, nursing, and emergency medical students in mind.
