Simbionix Introduces a New Ultrasound Training Simulator

Simbionix U/S Mentor Simulator

October 8, 2012 — Simbionix USA Corp. will introduce the new advanced U/S (ultrasound) Mentor simulator at the upcoming American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) Exhibition in Denver, Colo. This new Simbionix simulator offers realistic hands-on training for diverse ultrasound examinations and interventions.

Ultrasound is the second most widely used diagnostic imaging modality after X-ray. The last decade has seen a significant shift from provider-performed ultrasound, done by trained sonographers in the radiology, obstetrics and cardiology departments, to point-of-care (POC) bedside ultrasound procedures performed by various specialists as part of their patient care. This trend is driven by the advent of more compact, higher quality and less expensive ultrasound equipment, practicality, efficiency and demand.

Today ultrasound has medical applications for every area of the body and provides accurate results regarding overall structural composition. In correspondence with the rapidly growing utilization of ultrasound technology by various medical specialties, the Simbionix U/S Mentor provides a unique training opportunity, allowing healthcare professionals and clinical practitioners to independently acquire sonography skills in their field of practice.

The Simbionix U/S Mentor features highly realistic simulation within a comprehensive educational environment. The simulator is comprised of a palpable mannequin and true-to-life simulated anatomies, physiology and pathologies, with skill tasks and structured step-by-step procedural guidance available alongside virtual patient cases.

The first training package is designed to develop basic ultrasonographic psychomotor skills and advanced hands on training for bedside echocardiography (ECG). A variety of hands-on tasks and cases accompanied by comprehensive didactics enhance procedural and clinical understanding. The unique module incorporates ECG, image enhancement tools, measurement tools, color Doppler, cine-loops recording and clinical findings reporting, all supporting training to the full extent of the actual procedure.
