Human Patient Simulator
Located in the state of the art simulation facility in the Tulane School of Medicine's Murphy Building, the METI Human Patient Simulator is a fully-interactive, life-sized intubatable mannequin that simulates common problems found in the operating room. Linked to a computer through a host of electro-mechanical equipment, this integration makes the users experience very realistic.
Computerized mathematical models of human physiology and a feedback-based pharmacokinetics system assist the mannequin in responding in realtime to all user interventions.
The human patient simulator can be connected to a full suite of anesthesia machines and appropriate scenarios can be programmed. Separate event, drug, and physiologic logs are auto-recorded during usage and can be viewed offline.
