SimSpaces Affordably Increases Medical Simulation Lab Fidelity

“80% of the Realism for 20% of the cost!”

After covering the NAEMSE plenary session on the status of simulation in EMS education, I toured the exhibit hall and came across Greg Vis from Hudson Simulation Services who was demonstrating a cost effective product to dramatically increase realism! By adding just a [...]

Adding Background Noise to Medical Simulations

Interested in quickly increasing simulation lab fidelity?

Let’s consider that while all five senses can be stimulated to mimic clinical scenarios, audio-based queues closely follow visual queues when creating realistic simulated environments. Have you ever watched a movie with the sound delayed by just a few seconds? The whole experience of the visuals feels ‘off’. Likewise, [...]

Reflection on the Future of the Healthcare Simulation Industry

Not too long ago I attended Laerdal’s SUN Conference in San Diego and was asked to share my unique background and my thoughts about the future of Healthcare Simulation.  Check it out:
