The Center for Virtual Care (CVC) is pleased to have a variety of simulators to assist with education. 

Patient simulators, programmed to act like nearly any adult or pediatric patient a doctor might encounter, are enabling student physicians, nurses and allied health professionals to perform common medical procedures and respond to rare and complex medical conditions and life-threatening emergencies.

Using sophisticated models of physiology and pharmacology, the mannequins automatically produce a simulated response based on a student’s actions or interventions.  The CVC also has several portable mannequins which allows physicians and nurses to train with paramedics in the field.

The simulators blink, speak, breathe, have a heartbeat, eight pulse points and a variety of other anatomical features that allow students to practice intravenous drug delivery, CPR, catheterizations, basic obstetrics skills, as well as airway management and respiratory therapy for both adult and pediatric patients.
