METI’s Human Patient Simulator® is the only patient simulator with the ability to provide respiratory gas exchange, anesthesia delivery, and patient monitoring with real physiological clinical monitors. The patient’s cardiovascular, pulmonary and neurological characteristics and responses – right down to the flutter of an eyelid or the size of a pupil – can be controlled.
The simulator's ability to recognize and respond to specific drugs forces learners to evaluate key factors prior to administering drugs, including: drug specificity, pediatric versus adult dosages, IV versus oral administration, and any specific drug allergy considerations. Learners can be exposed a variety of conditions like malignant hyperthermia, anaphylaxis, tension pneumothorax and cardiac tamponade.
The METI HPS can be used for training in a variety of specialties including
• Anesthesia & Respiratory
• Emergency Medicine
