Veterinary Simulator Industries – Shoulder Dystocia Simulator
To remind us how simulation is expanding rapidly into a number of different academic industries, today a video demonstrating a Hereford model dystocia simulator by Dr. Gord Krebs of The University of Calgary Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, a product from Vet Simulator Industries.
The application of a wench device is necessary to help when there is a dystocia, which I think anyone would agree would be best to practice first on a mid fidelity simulator before performing a live procedure. Kinda makes you realize we aren’t alone in our little world of using healthcare simulators!
