HUMAN  PATIENT  SIMULATOR

Meet Stan (Standard Man), the Man who saves more lives.

At every level of patient care, hands-on experience is the best teacher. The Human Patient Simulator (HPS) – a computer-model-driven, full-sized mannequin – delivers that experience in true-to-life scenarios that swiftly change to meet instructors’ goals. The ultra sophisticated and highly versatile HPS blinks, speaks and breathes, has a heartbeat and a pulse, and accurately mirrors human responses to such procedures as CPR, intravenous medication, intubation, ventilation, and catheterization.

How is this possible? Through a painstaking marriage of “high touch” with “high tech,” this dramatically functional mannequin exhibits clinical signals so lifelike that students have been known to cry when it “dies.” Add to this a profound array of intricately programmed systems – cardiovascular, pulmonary, pharmacological, metabolic, genitourinary (male and female), and neurological – and you have an easily controlled teaching laboratory where students can practice again and again, until the highest-quality patient care becomes second nature.

The HPS is METI's top-of-the-line, fully automatic, high-fidelity patient simulator specifically designed for training in anesthesia, respiratory and critical care.

What differentiates the HPS from any other simulator available on the market today, is it's high level of automatic and enhanced features. The HPS is the only patient simulator with the ability to provide respiratory gas exchange, anesthesia delivery, and patient monitoring with real physiological clinical monitors.

KEY FEATURES:
1. Pupils that automatically dilate and constrict in response to light
2. Thumb twitch in response to a peripheral nerve stimulator
3. Automatic recognition and response to administered drugs and drug dosages
4. Variable lung compliance and airways resistance
5. Automatic response to needle decompression of a tension pneumothorax, chest tube drainage and pericardiocentesis
6. Automatic control of urine output


"Students see it, hear it, breathe it and live it with the patient. It's really a valuable tool."

Joann Sullivan-Mann, Associate Professor of Nursing


In hospitals, medical and nursing schools, community colleges and military bases all over the world, METI’s Human Patient Simulatorฎ (HPS) is recognized as the gold standard for healthcare education. This fully automatic, high fidelity simulator is specifically designed for training in anesthesia, respiratory and critical care. It’s the only simulator available with the ability to provide respiratory gas exchange, anesthesia delivery and patient monitoring with real physiological clinical monitors.

MEDICAL SIMULATION SAVES LIVES

Training health care professionals is no easy task: the challenge is far too complex – and too important – to be left to the task trainers of yesterday. Only in the aviation industry can you find a valid comparison to the healthcare field’s life-and-death necessity for rapid response, combined with unerring knowledge, skill and teamwork. For both pilots and healers, it’s an inescapable dilemma: where mistakes happen, lives can be lost. So it was no coincidence when computer simulation as a primary learning tool made the evolutionary leap from ultra-engineered flying machines to the natural intricacies of the human body.

But medical education called for entirely new simulation models, given the complexity of human physiology and pharmacology and the wide range of possible therapeutic interventions. That’s why METI Human Patient Simulators have at their core sophisticated mathematical models of human physiology – cardiovascular, respiratory, neurological and pharmacologic – that imitate human response in multi-layered, real-time ways that are vital to a truly objective learning experience. No other product in the world comes close to offering this unique technology.

You’re in Complete Control:

The HPS sets a new standard in medical education that has yet to be matched. Through a painstaking marriage of “high touch” with “high tech,” this dramatically functional simulator delivers an easily controlled teaching laboratory where students can practice again and again, until the highest quality patient care becomes second nature.

PATIENTS:
Quality of care can be difficult to measure when no two patients are alike. With the HPS, any patient profile can be created – or modified from preconfigured profiles – to offer a specific set of exacting objectives that test the limits of learners. The patient’s cardiovascular, pulmonary and neurologic characteristics and responses – right down to the flutter of an eyelid or the size of a pupil – can be controlled.

SIMULATIONS:
Because the HPS is model-driven, just about anything that can happen to a real patient – from common problems to severe events, such as malignant hyperthermia, anaphylaxis, tension pneumothorax and cardiac tamponade – can be simulated and tailored.

DRUGS:
Learning to administer the right drug in the right dosage to the right patient requires knowledge and experience. Using barcode tech- nology, the HPS requires learners to scan a given drug allowing the instructor and learner the ability to track the thought process as it pertains to the development of a plan of care. This forces learners to evaluate key factors prior to administering the drug, including: drug specificity, pediatric versus adult dosages, IV versus oral administration, and any specific drug allergy considerations.
