Patient Simulator "K ver.2 Plus" training system

Main visual: Cardiology Patient Simulator "K"

Real, comprehensive simulation of patients with heart diseases and arrhythmias - 88 examples. Real touch, with sounds and data recorded from actual patients, provides a true hands-on education. Easy to transport, simulator "K" can be in attendance wherever clinical training is required.

Features

K ver.2

-Features-

  • True-to-life reproduction of heart and breathing sounds recorded from real patients.
  • 36 cases of total patient simulation and 52 cases of arrythmia/ ECG simulation.
  • Auscultation sites corresponding to heart valves are located on a life-size body.
  • Objective and standardized finding of simulator “K”provides an incomparable tool for OSCE.

-Training Skills-

  • Assessment of jugular vein pulses at 8 sites
  • Identify different components of normal heart sounds (S1, S2, S3, S4 and OS)
  • Assessment of heart sounds and murmurs
  • Observation and palpation of apex beat at 3 sites
  • Interpretation of ECG

sinus bradycardia
ventricular premature contraction (1)
ventricular premature contraction (2)
ventricular premature contraction (3)
sino atrial block
atrio-ventricular block
atrial fibrillation
atrial flutter
Normal jugular venous waves, arterial pulses and cardiac impulses are simulated, as well as heart sounds such as S2 splitting in the pulmonic area and S3 and S4 gallop sounds in the mitral area. The characteristic findings of the arterial and venous pulse waves are simulated. For example, in ventricular premature contraction, the venous pulsations are normal but arterial pulsation is barely palpable by the premature beat. Characteristic heart sounds and pulse waves are simulated, Such as, ventricular premature beats.

The full size graphic ECG is displayed to practice reading the waves using pause and/or calibrator functions. Fifty-two pre-recorded cases are classified into 4 categories, comprised of 13 cases each.
