The challenge of teaching medical skills to burgeoning professionals lies in the ability to practice these skills in real situations. Medical students in a select number of cities are able to work in an emergency room or clinic with an experienced doctor to learn important skills. The limited number of spaces available for young medical professionals in real life situations necessitates medical simulation devices.
This niche of the medical teaching field has been filled by Cardionics. This Texas-based medical electronics company has developed medical simulators with the help of experienced medical professionals and academics. Their top flight medical simulator is the CardioSim VII Digital Heart Sound Simulator, which provides adjustable settings to fulfill all of the medical training functions needed in the classroom.
Versatile Medical Simulators
The CardioSim VII Digital Heart Sound Simulator makes it possible to teach students cardiac auscultation from a variety of angles. Individual heart sounds, murmurs and other variations can be simulated or isolated through this device for the benefit of your students. The CardioSim produces a simultaneous phonocardiogram and ECG display that combines sight and sound to the learning experience. You can add breath sounds to any heart sound to simulate a realistic patient contact.
One of the important features of these medical simulators is their functionality in a hospital setting. You can bring the CardioSim into a patient's room, record real heart sounds,ECG and pulse and replay them to students in the classroom. The frequency control and adjustment functions allow you to focus in on murmurs while keeping outside sounds away. If you cannot find a real patient, these simulators allow you to create any heart sound the body produces.
