Medical students practice robotic mannequins

The Moron University Added a Simulation Center For the Graduate School of Health Sciences of an institution which, as indicated, It is one of the most developed regions in the province of Buenos Aires.

It contains dozens of low, medium and high-resolution “robotic” models that can simulate different situations so that medical students can practice the treatments they should apply depending on the situation.

Acquiring mannequins meant a major investment by the university, as they had to be brought in through a company of North American origin and all the items had to be imported.

“It is a simulation center that meets all requirements so that students can conduct their exercises and acquire technical and diagnostic skills,” he explains. Juan Carlos Ortega’s photo, Academic Secretary of the University’s Higher College of Health Sciences, he adds, “There is a high-fidelity mannequin where many diseases, such as heart and respiratory diseases, are represented, and boys can experience a simulated clinical case and apply clinical criteria for each pathology.”

The purpose of the simulations is for medical students to learn with dummies and develop technical skills so that errors are reduced later when they have to practice with a real patient. newly Once they gain technical skills, they go to hospitals and do clinical practice.

Simulation Center launched on March 15th Four rooms, for high-fidelity clinical simulation, qualitative simulation and low resolution, pre-briefing, feedback and debriefing room, and teacher room.

The simulation room has a mannequin area High resolution. There is clinical simulation taking place For students to develop clinical and therapeutic diagnostic skillsThen we have another room, from Low resolutionWhere are the mannequins To develop technical skillsFor example, the practice of venipuncture, lumbar puncture, diagnosis of breast diseases, gynecology … that is, each mannequin represents a part of the body, and this part of the normal state is considered pathology, because certain elements are added to the mannequin who They pretend to be sick, “says Ortega.

There is another room, which also works as a classroom, where There is a projector and the boys watch their classmates as they work in the other roomsThey have cameras, and then they discuss the issue, if the kids behaved right or wrong. There is also a fourth room, Staff room, where mannequins are storedContinues to progress.

Developing clinical and therapeutic diagnostic skills.

Simulations, which differ in the level of complexity, are used by medical students of all years, using the most complex ones for students in the last years of their studies.

So far, those who are starting to use the simulation center are the students who do the final practice, for which they use high-resolution and advanced mannequins.

“Simulation, which is really an obligation in all universities, gets boys to practice and acquire technical skills first on mannequins and then later move more safely to real cases. Students are very happy, because they know that if they make mistakes they can do it again and there are no consequences.”
