For the fourth time this international competition for students of many medical professions will take a place during Annual Meeting of SESAM 2017 in Paris/France.

During this event winners of national medical simulation contests from many different countries will have a chance to compete against each other in challenging and very interesting simulated clinical scenarios.

Teams are expected to be composed of current students of many medical professions, like medicine, nursing, paramedics etc. They will have to manage not only high-fidelity human patient simulators but also some standardised patients (SPs). Each team will be expected to take history, perform a full physical examination and introduce an appropriate treatment to their patients. Apart from this communication, leadership, teamwork and crisis resources management will be evaluated by a panel of an international judges.

Laboratory Research Innovation Emergency Medical Services


LABORATORY RESEARCH INNOVATION EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES As part of the Built, Natural and Medical Research Centre, University of Rzeszów Innovative'' were designed and prepared research labs within LABORATORY RESEARCH INNOVATION Emergency Medical Services   The Laboratory for Innovative Research in Emergency Medical Services is:   1. Laboratory of innovative methods of simulation in emergency - SimMan 3G Completely wireless simulator with a build-in advanced Drug Recognition System. It registers the amount, speed and type of drug automatically and applies the appropriate physiological responses.  Simulated spontaneous breathing, bilateral and unilateral chest rise and fall, CO2 exhalation, normal and abnormal breath sounds. Unilateral, bilateral & lobar breath sounds, heart sounds and bowel sounds. ECG rhythm monitoring and 12 lead ECG display, defibrillation, cardio version and pacing. Advanced Video System Advanced video system simplifies the delivery and presentation of scenario debriefing by providing instructors with a tool to review all student assessments, therapies, patient interactions, critical thinking skills, and communication skills. Automatically integrates data from video cameras, a microphone, and patient monitoring with the event log creating a debriefing file that is easy to review with students, manage and share.   2.

Laboratory measurement of resuscitation skills training – ALS Simulator (3 pcs) The Advanced Life Support Simulator is a realistic interactive training manikin for simulating a wide range of advanced lifesaving skills in medical emergencies. The simulator responds to clinical intervention, instructor control and comprehensive pre-programmed scenarios for effective diagnostics and treatment. With spontaneous respirations, airway control, voice, sounds, ECG, blood pressure, IV injections and many other clinical features, the ALS. The simulator is the fully functional emergency care simulator.   SimJunior Advanced SimJunior is a realistic, full-body 6 years old pediatric simulator which helps to learn all needed skills in pediatric care like tachycardia, asthma, anaphylactic shock, allergic reaction.  Automatic debriefing based on the event log synchronized with video pictures provides immediate, detailed feedback on performance and optimizes the simulation as an educational tool.   Defibrylator Philips HeartStart MRX Light, portable monitor/defibrillator is working in four mode: monitor, manual defibrillator, aed and pacemaker. Pulse Oximetry (SpO2), Non-Invasive Blood Pressure (NBP) and Capnography (ETCO2) are also available.   Post-traumatic shock laboratory In February 2014 tender proceedings for following equipment: respirator, infusion pump, bed, basic vitalsim monitor will be initiated.   All simulation laboratories are equipped in audio-video system what enables recording simulation sessions. This records, the physiological parameters from simulator and student’s performance are combined by computer system. Such prepared session gives full picture of simulation and can be played and reviewed during the debriefing. The center is equipped with advanced patient simulators (2 adult, 1 baby, 1 infant,  1 birth and 1 newborn .) In the center there are debriefing rooms, if necessary, schedule analysis can also be performed directly in the simulation room or other rooms. In addition to the facilities for the conduct of advanced simulation sessions center provides four classrooms, designed primarily to exercise manual skills, where less advanced phantoms and training models are used i.e. manikins to learn advanced rescue procedures, dummies for driving cardiopulmonary resuscitation, models limbs to learn punctures, intramedullary injections, models to study spinal anesthesia , intubation models for learning, cricothyrotomy, pneumothorax decompression and drainage of the pleural cavity, models of childbirth, to study the urinary tract catheterization kits and a small surgery . In the self testing rooms students and staff of IPRM can independently learn and test their skills in CPR AED, ALS, ITLS, ILS. In the future it will be possible to introduce the teaching with use of standardized patients or conducting objective structured clinical examinations (OSCEs).

Situation of Polish Medical Universities in the background 2015

prognoza rynku

In Poland, in the academic year 2013/2014, was for the first time introduced a course of medical studies, after the completion of which students do not have to complete a medical internship in such a dimension as before. Hence, the examinations entitling future medical doctors to perform their professional duties will be taken just in Medical Simulation Laboratories which imitate small hospitals with dozens of rooms that have to be built by the university. There are, among others: Emergency Rooms, ICU, neonatal rooms, operating theatres - all fully equipped with real equipment. In 2013, the Ministry of Science covered the cost of architectural projects of Simulation Laboratories for 11 universities of medical sciences, and guaranteed for each university PLN 23 million (Equivalent of 5 milion Euro) on infrastructure and equipment. For example, the Simulation Centre in Poznan will have three floors and nearly 3,000 m2. The similar situation is observed at other universities. In total, the cost of the equipment in simulation laboratories in Poland which will be implemented over the next 2-3 years will amount to PLN 300 million (Equivalent of 75 milion Euro). Now, in 2016 we all universities startet to build their Simulations Centres. We hope in April-Mai we started buyin equipment, manikins for Simulation Centres. Every year representatives of Medical Simulation industry meet at professional conferences connected with the fair. In 2014, the organizer of the Anniversary SESAM Meeting for Medical Simulation was the University of Medical Sciences in Poznan. For the first time the conference was held in the country of the old Eastern Bloc.

What is Medical Simulation?

Medical Simulation

Simulation is a training and feedback method in which learners practice tasks and processes in lifelike circumstances using models or virtual reality, with feedback from observers, peers, actor-patients, and video cameras to assist improvement in skills. Computer-based medical simulation provides a realistic and economical set of tools to improve and maintain the skills of health care providers adding a valuable dimension to medical training similar to professional training in aviation, defense, maritime, and nuclear energy. Medical simulators allow individuals to review and practice procedures as often as required to reach proficiency without harming the patient.

Simulation-based Medical Education (SBME) includes several tools and approaches:

A full environment simulator is similar to flight simulators used to train pilots. The pilot is immersed in a complete replica of the cockpit environment. In medicine, sophisticated mannequins, known as patient simulators provides health care professionals with a computer-based patient that breathes, responds to drugs, talks, and drives all the clinical monitors in the operating room, e.g., blood pressure and pulse rate.   Task trainers provide a simulated subset of functionality, such as how to give a smallpox inoculation or how to insert a chest tube.   Computer-based training provides software programs that train and assess clinical knowledge and decision-making skills.   Simulated/standardized patients allow students to interact with actors trained to act as patients providing students with valuable feedback on, among other things, bedside manner.

Medical simulation is a cross-disciplinary effort that brings together providers, including nurses, physicians, and allied health professionals across a variety of disciplines with computer scientists, researchers, educators, and human factors engineers.
