CAE Healthcare Launches Medical Simulation Skills Trainers Online Store
Now, healthcare simulation educators can spend less time ordering clinical simulation products and more time engaging with their learners. This is because CAE Healthcare has launched a medical skills trainer online store. This store brings CAE Blue Phantom ultrasound trainers and CAE Medicor clinical skills trainers under one e-commerce umbrella. Medical simulation educators can compare and evaluate skills trainers based on their center’s specific needs and can order through a single online resource. This healthcare simulation product online store is an exciting, useful resource for healthcare simulation educators, facilitators, and professionals worldwide!
This CAE store provides access to CAE Blue Phantom and CAE Medicor products and allows educators to explore products by specialty or skill. Quick access to featured products is provided as well. CAE products available through the online store include the F.A.S.T. Exam Ultrasound Training Model, Central Line, and Regional Anesthesia Ultrasound Training Models, Cardiac Ultrasound Training Block, Stop the Bleed Arm, MultiCUBE, MultiPad, Vascular Ultrasound Training Blocks, and Sticky Wound Kit. These healthcare simulation products can be utilized within any clinical simulation program to enhance the learner experience through realistic, engaging simulation scenarios.
“With CAE Blue Phantom products, we have trained hundreds of physicians, nurses, and allied health professionals in the techniques for safe ultrasound-guided vascular access. The customer service and support from CAE have been exceptional. The orders are filled promptly, and all inquiries have received an immediate and appropriate response,” said Michael Marsh, MHA, the assistant director of operations at the University of Michigan’s Clinical Simulation Center.
CAE Featured Clinical Simulation Online Products
F.A.S.T. Exam Ultrasound Training Model: These full-torso models are the first, fully imageable, Focused Assessment with Sonography for Trauma (F.A.S.T.) ultrasound training models offering superb realism, as well echocardiography and pericardiocentesis procedural training. The model features ultrasound imaging characteristics of the structures in the thorax, right upper quadrant, left upper quadrant, abdomen, and pelvis. Learners can apply adequate transducer pressure for image acquisition, as well as how to navigate bowel gas and intercostal access.
Adjustable internal bleeding levels allow learners to individually vary the training scenarios. This fully imageable upper and lower torso offers extremely realistic internal bleeding that can be adjusted to simulate a wide variety of effusion states, including small, medium, and large effusions or no effusions around the liver, spleen, heart, and bladder. The Simulex tissue has self-healing properties, allowing for 1000+ punctures when used with an 18 to 21 gauge needle. Customers can choose from two options: transthoracic only, or transthoracic and transesophageal imaging.
Central Line and Regional Anesthesia Ultrasound Training Models: This CAE Blue Phantom upper torso model is ideal for practicing both ultrasound-guided and blind central line placement and peripheral nerve blocks. Each model offers a patented Simulex insert available with vascular access anatomy of the upper thorax and neck and optional brachial plexus.
This model is excellent for using traditional external landmarks for blind insertion central line placement, or ultrasound to guide the central venous access procedure. The brachial plexus can be injected with simulated anesthetics to verify needle tip location and to practice the entire anesthesia procedure. Injected simulated anesthetic fluid is expelled, allowing for repeated use.
Cardiac Ultrasound Training Block: These training models help learners develop and practice using ultrasound system controls, insertion and manipulation of a transesophageal (TEE/TOE) transducer, positioning, and movement of a transthoracic (TTE) transducer, recognizing cardiac structures and performing ultrasound-guided pericardiocentesis procedures. These portable, lightweight, heart block models offer an extremely realistic echocardiography training platform and are available in transparent and flesh-tone configurations. The transparent version allows learners to visualize the needle and the TEE probe without the use of ultrasound.
Stop the Bleed Arm: Challenge students’ simulation scenarios with this innovative product made entirely of our proprietary MedicSkin. Experience realistic lower-arm bleeding that stops when a tourniquet is properly applied. Continue the challenge by initiating bleeding on the upper-arm wound, forcing students to use critical thinking skills to find the second source of bleeding. This belted model securely attaches to a manikin or standardized patient.
MultiCUBE: CAE Medicor’s multipurpose models are ideal for on-site and remote learning. Lightweight and versatile, they provide learners with the opportunity to practice several skills on one small, portable unit. The MultiCube models are ideal for practicing venipuncture, percutaneous injections, wound care, suture removal, and urinary catheterization.
MultiPad: CAE Medicor’s multipurpose models are ideal for on-site and remote learning. Lightweight and versatile, they provide learners with the opportunity to practice several skills on one small, portable unit. The MultiPad models are ideal for practicing venipuncture, percutaneous injections, wound care, urinary catheterization, and nasogastric (NG) insertion.
Vascular Ultrasound Training Blocks: These models are excellent for training clinicians in the psychomotor skills associated with ultrasound venous and arterial cannulation procedures. They feature branching blood vessels positioned at differing depths and courses. The branched vessels offer multiple training opportunities, including independent linear vessels for initial training in addition to overlapping branched vessels for more advanced ultrasound training. Practice using ultrasound system controls, positioning and moving the transducer, and recognizing vessels in soft tissue. Positive fluid flow “flash” occurs when the vessels are accurately accessed
Sticky Wound Kit: CAE Medicor sticky wounds are made entirely of MedicGel for a lifelike appearance. Able to stick to any surface without adhesive, these wounds can be applied to any manikin or standardized patient. Choose from a 6-, 8-, 12- or 24-piece kit. All sticky wounds are stain-resistant and hypoallergenic.
More About CAE Healthcare
CAE Healthcare, a division of Canadian-based CAE (NYSE: CAE), is among world leaders in developing cutting-edge healthcare simulation learning tools for today’s professional healthcare providers. The company strives to deliver educational tools that best help healthcare professionals provide safe high-quality patient care. CAE Healthcare has an extraordinarily vast area of simulated products ranging from manikins, interventional and imaging systems, and AV recording debriefing / Learning Management Systems.
CAE acquired METI (Medical Education Technologies Inc.) in 2011 to bolster the CAE Healthcare brand. The company is now part of a team of over 7,500 employees in over 25 countries around the world supporting more than 6,000 of their patient simulators. Besides serving the primary care and EMS fields in the United States and numerous other countries, such as CAE Healthcare Japan, the corporation also supports military training units around the world.
CAE Healthcare has a unique range of manikins for simulation medical training including the iStan, METIman, Human Patient Simulator (HPS), Emergency Care Simulator (ECS), PediaSIM, and BabySim. Most of these high-fidelity medical simulation manikins now run on CAE Healthcare’s patented Müse software. As one of the original innovators of medical simulation technology, CAE Healthcare has continued to innovate new learning products and solutions that support the world’s healthcare industry.
For example, while iStan may be the “flag-ship” manikin for CAE, they also provide a range of other medical simulation educational solutions such as eDose or LearningSpace, their learning management system. They also have a full range of surgical simulators including the CAE Laparoscopy VR, CAE EndoscopyVR, and CathLabVR, as well as the Viamedix ultrasound simulator.
