Gaumard Unveils Advanced Pediatric Simulator

Gaumard-Unveils-Advanced-Pediatric-Simulator

Mobile pediatric patient simulator is intended to use as a training tool to practice common tests and procedures, including helping to improve clinicians’ interactions with children

Gaumard Scientific, a company headquartered in Miami, Florida is releasing advanced wireless and tetherless mobile pediatric patient simulator. Pediatric HAL is designed to help health care students and professionals at all levels develop the specialized skills needed to effectively communicate with, diagnose, and treat young patients throughout the continuum of care..

The Pediatric HAL pretends to be a child in distress that talks, blinks, squirms in pain, gets excited, and even cries. Physicians can give it needle injections, collect blood sample, prick finger to take a glucose reading and monitor via ECG and pulse oximetry. The device can have different emotional states, such as being lethargic, anxious or in pain. It performs many tasks similar to human, such as following a pencil with its blue eyes and changing pupil size in response to light.

“Good communication skills are essential for diagnosing and treating children, yet until now, learners and clinicians haven’t had a pediatric simulator that interacts with them in a realistic, lifelike way,” said John Eggert, executive vice president of Gaumard Scientific Company. Emergency CPR and even invasive procedures, such as insertion of chest tubes and tracheotomies, can be practiced using Pediatric HAL so that clinicians are ready for real emergencies and unusual clinical events.

According to Mannequin-Based Simulation Market report published by Coherent Market Insights, Mannequins are replica or dummy models used as virtual patients in the hospital and medical education. Mannequin is a technique for medical simulation, which aims to train medical specialist and professionals to reduce the risk of adverse accidents during general practice, treatment, and surgery. Pediatric HAL includes 10 outcome-focused scenarios designed to replicate a variety of clinical situations throughout the spectrum of pediatric care. Pediatric HAL’s responsive features set a new standard for training across the pre-hospital, transport, emergency, nursing, and intensive care settings.
