Book Description :

Following up his best-selling Board Stiff TEE & Too manuals for the oral boards in anesthesiology, Dr. Gallagher has produced a step-by-step how-to guide on conducting an anesthesia simulation. Topics include which equipment to use as well as suggestions for simulation scenarios that will help train your staff with a theoretical basis for handling even the most unexpected complications. This simulation guide with video clips helps to close the gaps that may result when abnormal situations are not recognized quickly enough or the response to them is haphazard and slow. The result is a highly effective, enjoyable, and affordable tool on this increasingly important way to ensure resources are being managed effectively. Concise and complete guide to all the issues relevant to anesthesia simulation Rich in clinical scenarios and models Experiences from state-of-the-art simulation center Employs latest CPR and other practice guidelines

Book Description :

In the past ten years, full-scale simulation training has become dramatically more evident in undergraduate and graduate medical education. This increase has been due pri marily to two factors: the development of new computer-driven technology and an interest in simulation-specific training techniques. Technologically, simulators have evolved from simple anatomical reproductions to full-scale accurate reproductions of anatomy and physiology powered by multiple computers. High-technology simulation centers run by teams of faculty are emerging as integral tools in fulfilling medical centers' educational missions. In addition, educational techniques specific to simulation, which have been de veloped and used by other industries for over half a century, are being applied to medical training. Aviation and aerospace have used sophisticated simulation since the 1950s to train pilots and astronauts. Extrapolating these methods for use in the medical world has been a natural course of events, particularly in specialties that require some of the same basic thought processes and interactions required of the pilot or astronaut. It is not surprising, then, that anesthesiology would be the medical specialty to take the lead in adding simula tion training to its educational programs. The anesthesiologist's job in the operating room is similar to that of a pilot in a cockpit, not in the specific tasks, but in decision making, technological and human interfaces, and crisis management.

Book Description :

Abstract Simulation has become a major player in the medical world. Still way behind other high-risk industries, simulation is being increasingly accepted and finds its ways into many clinical areas. Simulation offers the possibility to train individual skills as well as to evaluate performance, provide group crisis management training or even investigate the safety of installed systems and algorithms without risking patient's life. Obstetric units and labor suites have been identified as high-risk areas in the hospital setting and can be challenging environments for the anesthesiologist. Simulators can be used to improve communication skills and workload distribution, and specifically drill for obstetric-relevant crisis scenarios. However, it remains unclear how well these trainings do transfer into clinical performance and improved patient outcome. Being a relevant cost factor, simulation will have to provide answers to these questions; hence, more research is needed in the future.

Book Description :

Medical simulation is a relatively new science that is achieving respectability among healthcare educators worldwide. Simulation and skills centres have become established to integrate simulation into mainstream education in all medical, nursing, and paramedical fields. Borrowing from the experience and methodologies of industries that are using simulation, medical educators are grappling with the problem of rapidly acquiring the skills and techniques required to implement simulation programmes into established curricula. This book assists both novice and experienced workers in the field to learn from established practitioners in medical simulation. Simulation has been used to enhance the educational experience in a diverse range of fields; therefore a wide variety of disciplines are represented. The book begins with a section on the logistics of establishing a simulation and skills centre and the inherent problems with funding, equipment, staffing and course development, and promotion. Section two deals with simulators and related training devices that are required to equip a stand-alone or institution-based centre. The features, strengths, and weaknesses of training devices are presented to help the reader find the appropriate simulator to fulfil their training requirements. There is a guide to producing scenarios and medical props that can enhance the training experience. The third section covers adult education and it reviews the steps required to develop courses that comply with 'best practice' in medical education. Teaching skills, facilitating problem-based learning groups and debriefing techniques are especially important to multidisciplinary skills centres that find themselves becoming a centre for medical education. The manual concludes with guides for the major specialties that use simulation, including military, paediatrics, CPR and medical response teams, obstetrics, and anesthesia.

"This book could easily become the "go to" text for standardized patient utilization and the backbone for implementation strategies in learning programs...It is a must-have for all disciplines interested in adding the human simulation experience to their programs."--Nursing Education Perspectives "Today there is an explosion in the use of simulation in nursing and health professions education. The contributors to this text are experts in this format of teaching. They are the designers of the learning spaces, the authors of simulation cases and evaluation methods, the experts who program the human patient simulators and who teach the patient actors to enact the clinical scenariosÖI consider this a "handbook" on the design, evaluation and practice of simulation for clinical education. If you are a faculty member with concerns about how your students will make the transition from student to professional, use simulation in your curriculum and learn for yourself that pretending is simulation for life but simulation is pretending for the delivery of exquisite clinical care." Gloria F. Donnelly, PhD, RN, FAAN Dean and Professor Drexel University College of Nursing and Health Professions Human simulation is changing the face of clinical education in the health professions. Its use has expanded beyond medical school to encompass nursing and mental health clinical education.
