Pediatric HAL, the world's most advanced pediatric patient simulator, leads the line-up

MIAMI and ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- A 5-year-old boy is rushed to

the ER on a stretcher, bleeding and exhibiting convulsions. Pediatricians go into action with the critical thinking skills and confidence of a team that has prepared for challenging cases using high-fidelity, lifelike simulation as part of their intensive training program.

Gaumard Scientific will exhibit Pediatric HAL®, the latest addition to its family of advanced simulators and skills trainers, in Booth 1139 at the American Academy of Pediatrics 2018 National Conference & Exhibition at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.

Pediatric HAL

"Pediatric HAL® S2225, the world's most advanced pediatric patient simulator, is the latest high-fidelity simulator to join Gaumard's family, which has been growing steadily since Gaumard pioneered wireless, fully tetherless simulation technology in 2004," Gaumard executive vice president John Eggert says. 

"Pediatric HAL is designed with high fidelity functionality to help medical educators teach the specialized skills needed to effectively communicate, diagnose, and treat young patients, using real diagnostic and therapeutic equipment in a variety of clinical areas," Eggert added. "It's the closest experience to a real-world pediatric emergency, nursing, and critical care available today."

Simulation-based education is now a key component of academic and continued professional education. Through scenario-based learning, Pediatric HAL can help participants assess verbal and non-verbal cues to build patient-provider communication skills and empathy. In addition to illustrating nearly a dozen facial expressions, Pediatric HAL also simulates a variety of emotional states to represent behavior better, providing a new level of patient-provider communication for medical education.

Pediatric HAL supports a broad range of real patient monitors and sensors. He also features dynamic lung compliance that responds to real mechanical ventilation. This enables learners to develop the skills needed to set up and operate equipment as they would in real clinical situations.

Pediatric HAL includes 10 outcome-focused scenarios designed to replicate a variety of clinical situations throughout the spectrum of pediatric care. Accompanying each Simulation Learning Experience™ is a detailed written guide for setting up, planning, and facilitating the learning experience.
