The Center for Simulated Learning is a 3,000-plus square-foot facility that houses two simulation rooms – one is a general pediatric room and the other can simulate an ICU or operating room.
The control room - our audiovisual facility - allows staff to record and playback the scenarios and activities in the lab rooms, as well as to send a live-feed to the debriefing room.
The center also features a task trainer room, and a second, flexible space that works as a single conference or debriefing room. Alternately, it can serve as a divided space that creates two rooms for skills training.
Children’s Health healthcare professionals have the option of working with any of our seven high-fidelity and three medium-fidelity manikins, as well as with numerous task trainers that include CPR and central line placement.
The lab offers a computer workroom with a virtual IV trainer and computer stations with virtual nursing applications for software-based simulations. All manikins work as well in situ as in the lab.
Trainees are able to draw blood, start IVs, intubate and use equipment similar to what is used in patient rooms or in the Emergency Department, such as
- An anesthesia machine
- A ventilator
- Intravenous pumps
- Feeding pumps
- A crash cart
