Fidelis Maternal Fetal Simulator IMSH 2014 Interview Part 2: Advanced Engineering
Shortly after IMSH 2014 I posted a video about the belle of the ball: Fidelis from CAE Healthcare. You can watch part 1 of my Fidelis Maternal Fetal review interview here, in which we learn why CAE decided to enter into the birthing simulator market now with their first new simulator since the METI acquisition and the clinical learning opportunities of this advanced manikin. Part 2, shown below covers my interview with Devin Johns Group Leader, Technology and Standards at CAE Healthcare who helped lead the engineering team of Fidelis. Unique to CAE Healthcare is the ability to pull from the years of experience manufacturing some of the world’s leading aviation simulators. You can really see the attention to engineering detail and streamlined design of the Fidelis by seeing her in this video!
The CAE Fidelis Lucina Maternal Fetal Simulator was developed for clinicians and interprofessional teams who manage normal deliveries as well as childbirth complications and obstetrical emergencies. The birthing simulator offers reliable, realistic training for childbirth maneuvers and emergency response when time is short and teamwork is essential. Developed in partnership with leading maternal-fetal educators and biomedical engineers, Lucina is the only childbirth simulator with validated maternal-fetal physiology. The physiological modeling allows learners to monitor and manage both patients without instructor intervention
Coming Soon! The Added Value of Two Patients in One
The Lucina Maternal Fetal Simulator now offers the option to add a Female Patient Module with a non-pregnant abdomen and five Simulated Clinical Experiences (SCEs). Use your Lucina simulator year-round as both an obstetrical patient and a normal female patient. Users can also create their own SCEs on the Müse system. The five Female Patient Module SCEs are:
- Chronic Heart Failure Exacerbation
- Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome
- Sepsis with Hypotension
- Brain Attack with Thrombolytic Therapy
- Motor Vehicle Collision with Hypovolemic Shock
