ECMO Simulator 'EigenFlow' Now Available from CLR | IMSH 2015 Product Demo
At IMSH 2015 I ran into Paul Curtis who let me know that after the positive support received from showcasing his innovative ECMO simulator designs at the SimGHOSTS 2012 event, he had launched his own company Curtis Life Research to provide the world with the EigenFlow! With a background in medical simulation, Biomedical and computer engineering it’s no wonder Paul has created a unique innovation in the field of healthcare simulation. Watch our video interview below to learn more about how you can now bring ECMO simulation to your educational program!
About the EigenFlow
Until now, an ECMO educator was present in the sim environment, manipulating the circuit in the presence of the trainee. As institutions began to develop their own ECMO simulations many realized that higher-fidelity simulation would not be possible without the development of a remote controlled simulator connected to the ECMO circuit.
At the heart of EigenFlow is an intuitive iOS interface available for free from the App Store. Rather than tethering control of the EigenFlow to desktop computers, we developed an intuitive iPhone/iPad app that wirelessly controls the EigenFlow. With one hand, controlling EigenFlow it allows control of manikin vitals with the other. EigenFlow connects wirelessly through Bluetooth, so you can control simulations from up to 100 feet.
With EigenFlow you can Simulate:
- Air Embolus
- Blood Monitoring
EigenFlow is a multifunction wireless ECMO simulator ideal for in situ training of perfusionists and ECMO specialists. Simply interpose the EigenFlow into your existing adult or pediatric ECMO circuit and remotely simulate thrombi, line obstruction, air emboli, and changes in pulmonary and cardiac function.
