This immersive training solution is educationally effective for the practice of teamwork, leadership, and communication skills for a wide range of health care professionals encompassing all areas of patient care. The simulator comes with scenarios for acute myocardial infarction, acute ischemic stroke, and vascular trauma. All scenarios are designed for team training focused on time management, decision-making, communications, and transitions through each level of care from the onset of symptoms to the catheterization lab.

With SimMan Vascular, individuals and teams can now train in the actual environment in which they work, such as pre-hospital, in-hospital, ambulance or combat environment. SimMan Vascular provides a wireless, self-contained, rugged and reliable full body patient simulator with Resuscitative Endovascular Balloon Occlusion of the Aorta (REBOA) capabilities providing both a dynamic simulated patient with Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Life Support (ACLS) capabilities in addition to interventional endovascular procedures.

REBOA is a technique used in trauma for patients that are rapidly bleeding to death from injuries to their chest, abdomen or pelvis. This technique involves stopping blood flow, essentially halting any bleeding, while also stopping all blood flow. This is a temporary maneuver and is used as a bridge to get the severely injured patient to the Operating Room as quickly as possible. Through the innovative and cutting edge technology, the SimMan Vascular provides the opportunity for Vascular Surgeons to practice these critical clinical skills such as REBOA without risk to the patient.

In addition to the REBOA capabilities, the SimMan Vascular has a full array of Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) and treatment capabilities, including Quality CPR (QCPR), spontaneous breathing, heart-lung-bowel sounds, convulsions, bleeding from wounds or limbs, RFID technology for the administering of simulated medications and airway devices, light sensitive and reactive eyes, and has the capability of communicating with the trainees or students. Based on the proven and popular SimMan 3G platform, SimMan Vascular provides an innovative tool for surgeons to utilize a whole body human patient simulator to simulate, practice and rehearse some of the most complex and life-threatening procedures prior to ever stepping into the operating room with a patient.
