Human Patient Simulators
Human Patient Simulators are life-size adult and infant patient simulators that replicate elements of human physiology like respiration, heart beat and pulse. They are mechanical and computer controlled simulators that mimic human appearance and display symptoms and disease processes as they present in a real patient.
Task trainers or partial manikins are lifelike models of human body parts. They can be an anatomical replica of a hand, arm, knee, torso and male or female pelvis. Task trainers are used to teach competency based and procedural skills like airway management, NG tube placement, lumbar puncture, basic life support and IV injection.
