How a simulation exercise is arranged?

Preparatory stage

As a Trainer or a Technician

  • Collection of material necessary for student preparation
  • Information about the exercise, with references to the relevant parts of Knowledge Base
  • Selection of Scenarios to be used during the exercise
  • Assignment of students to the exercise
Preparation for the Exercise
  • Prepare exercise tools and prepare for video recording
  • Trainers prepare for the exercise by using related training material in SimEduSmart
Entry Level Test
  • A successfully completed test is required to attend the exercise

As a Student

  • The student receives an e-mail that he/she has been assigned to a certain exercise
  • The student can view the location and timing of the exercise and the list of knowledge base materials which are necessary for preparation
Preparation for the Exercise
  • The student studies the related master videos and scientific material
Successful completion of the Entry Level Test

The simulation exercise

Roles during the exercise
  • Trainer
  • Technician to manage simulator and video recording
This is a group exercise
Every scenario is individually recorded.
Recordings are evaluated together.

The last phase of the exercise is the group evaluation of the videos. What was being done well and what needs to be done differently next time.

There is an option in SimEduSmart to enable students to view exercises individually, if he/she participated in them.

Key advantages

Interactive educational application

It is a top priority that all medical graduates should be able to recognise clinical cases elaborated in the application and provide first level treatment. Time factor is essential in time-oriented scenarios and cases.

Medical professionals elaborate clinical cases and situations, which produce the adequate symptoms on the patient simulator, if input into the control module and the simulator. It is important that medical students develop their diagnostic skills during the years of academic education, also learning the effective and adequate treatment protocols. Medical professionals can also fine-tune situations with various physiological parameters, which results an even more real-life behaviour of the patient simulator.

Cases (scenarios) were already elaborated for areas and cases which the simulator can visualise in an impressive way. These cases are:

In a certain situation there are various levels of expected knowledge, for example, a level of a doctor, a nurse or a paramedic professional. There are also emergency situations where professionals on all levels are expected to know the necessary steps to stabilise the patient. The purpose of elaborating these cases was to create a standardised medical education methodology and requirement system, offered by all Hungarian (medical) educational institutions. The SimEduSmart supports that ambition.

High fidelity patient simulator (Adult – iSTAN)

iSTAN is a high performance, new generation, advanced wireless patient simulator with responses closely resemble reactions of a human patient.

The new iStan contains all functions which are necessary and useful for training sessions in an interactive healthcare Skills Centre. The simulator has an „all-in one” system, a fully articulated limbs and joints system which can be fully controlled wirelessly, and has new and updated features which makes iStan the most advanced patient simulator in the world. In addition, the new iStan meets the requirements of the new Müse standard (user interface of the new CAE touchscreen function), which enables an easier, faster and more user-friendly operation of the simulator.

The new iStan has a new skin (a more advanced and realistic skin, which is also more durable) and was created in a way that it should function within various environments from classrooms to field exercises of the Defence sector.

Amongst the new functions you can find the reactive eyes, which generate automatic pupil reaction together or one by one to light or trauma.

The patient simulator has a high availability and robustness, designed to endure the heavy duty of forced respiration (CPR). The new, more silent operation enables the user to hear all patient sounds (and not the mechanics), which improves real life experience when a patient breathes.

There is a new software: Müse-iStan is now compatible with the new CAE (METI) user interface which combines the CAE (METI) physiology models with intuitive, dynamic control during movements.

The high fidelity iStan patient simulator is connected via a standard interface to the SimEduSmart. Being an integrated system the master videos prepared and recorded with iStan are uploaded into the Knowledge Base of SimEduSmart from which students and participants can access them even after the training course is completed.
