SIMULATION LAB Making Us Better One Student at a Time Alexandra C. Snyder, B.S. Division of Cardiovascular Perfusion Medical University of South Carolina November 9, 2011
Disclosures I have nothing to disclose I have no relationship with commercial supporters
Objectives To examine the use of simulation in other industries To examine the current role of simulation in perfusion To discuss the advantages of training students using simulation To consider what the future possibilities of perfusion simulation may be To present students’ perspectives of simulation in their perfusion education
Simulation in Other Professions Routinely used in aviation, the nuclear industry, NASA & in many medical specialties Initial qualifications and beginning training Ongoing training and assessment/certification process Remedial training Add-on training for new techniques and skills
Simulation in Perfusion No high-stakes assessment of competency using simulation is required by the ABCP for certification, re- certification, or professional development Used primarily by perfusion schools and for research Investigation of human factors Few high-fidelity Orpheus perfusion simulators available worldwide* *ULCO Technologies, Sydney, NSW, Australia
Traditional Perfusion Training Basic science background Academic instruction with some lab sessions and hands-on experience Clinical training as an apprenticeship process under supervision of an instructor “see one, do one, teach one”
Perfusion Simulator- A New Paradigm in Student Learning
Orpheus Perfusion Simulator (Sim- Central Pty Ltd, Earlwood, New South Wales, Australia)
Orpheus Perfusion Simulator “The easy to use, intuitive software allows the Perfusionist Trainer to control the simulator and execute the training session manually, or use a set of predefined scripts” http://www.ulcotechnologies.com/products/orpheus /orpheus.pdf “The fidelity of the physiologic monitoring is so realistic that our students will not be simulating bypass, they will be doing bypass on a simulated patient” -Bruce Searles
Routine BypassPatient EmergenciesEquipment Malfunctions Initiation of bypassBlood lossAortic cannula obstruction Weaning from bypassLV dysfunctionOxygen supply failure Cooling/RewarmingCardiac ArrhythmiasPump power supply failure Use of centrifugal pumpsFailure of anticoagulationHeat exchanger failure Variations in patient resistance Air embolismMonitor failure Variations in patient coagulability AnaphylaxisAortic cannula displacement Use of vasodilators/constrictors Protamine reactionOxygenator failure Use of vasoconstrictorsTransfusion reactionVenous air entrainment O 2 consumption changesBlood gas abnormalitiesCircuit leaks
Benefits of Simulation Training Improved performance of individuals Long-term maintenance of proficiency Provides a real-time, safe setting without harming patients Instructors can devise training scenarios that will test certain skills (“trigger events”) Coaching and Debriefing Improved patient safety
Sim Lab vs. Operating Room Sim Lab Operating Room *Student-focused *Patient-focused -No room for mistakes *Reinforces lectures *Determined by random case for the day *Exposure to low volume, high- *Experience determined risk events frequently by cases *Can demonstrate corrective *No re-dos action *Unlimited experience *Limited case load *Clinical variety *Experience based on rotation and surgeon
Future Applications Human factors training Interprofessional education CPB for MDs Continuing medical education Simulation-based competency test Recertification (Re-CCP) Rehearse new procedures & devices Product development Patient Safety Research
Barriers to Simulation in Perfusion Limited number of high fidelity perfusion simulation centers Lack of validated & standardized evaluation instruments Lack of trained simulation facilitators Lack of agreed standards for simulation-based education Lack of simulators used for training in pediatric perfusion
The Student Perspective Fernandez A. Simulation in perfusion: where do we go from here?. Perfusion. 2010;25(1):17-20.
The Student Perspective Thought simulation was beneficial prior to doing clinical work Thought that the simulator was a good alternative to doing a clinical case Thought that simulation should be used from the first day of class through graduation Want more simulation!
Conclusions Simulation is commonly used to train professionals in equally risky industries to improve critical skills and patient safety Implementation of simulation into perfusion training is currently in its infancy, but is proving worthwhile This modality has been used in the academic setting to develop basic perfusion skills, gain experience, and practice emergency procedures There is a role for simulation in the future of perfusion beyond academics Student opinion supports full integration of simulation training into their perfusion education
