Baylor College of Medicine has expanded its lab from six rooms to 12 rooms designed to look and function like a real medical clinic. Each room is equipped with computers, wall-mounted exam equipment, and video cameras.
There are two rooms currently being remodeled to resemble a hospital triage room.
Students are tested in these exam rooms to experience a realistic patient-doctor encounter. The lab prepares students to start their residency with confidence.
Each simulation room is equipped with an examination bed, medical supplies, and all the equipment needed for a routine doctor's office visit.
Here are descriptions of a few of the simulators used through the different programs in our lab:
Sam is a simulated cardiac patient used to help students strengthen their cardiac assessment skills.
Baby Anne is the infant cardiac simulator used to teach CPR skills for infants.
This simulator is used for learning proper lumbar puncture techniques. The lumbar puncture simulator includes a spinal column model for reference.
Little Anne is used to teach CPR skills for adults.
The Ventriloscope is used to teach students the different heart sounds.
These are just a few examples of the Simulation Equipment used for examinations, practice sessions, and skills workshops. For more information on the types of equipment used, please contact one of our staff members.
