Residency students enjoy real-world training simulations at the Mercyhealth Prehospital and Emergency Services Training Center in Janesville. The sim lab is designed to let instructors develop a variety of patient care scenarios, complete with sounds and realistic backgrounds projected onto the walls. Within these scenarios, students practice skills on the METIman, a human patient simulator.
By using video, called METI-Vision, instructors play back the simulation cases to have the students review and critique their own performance as part of their training process.
METIman simulates life-like situations
METIman is a human patient simulator. Its physiologically driven simulator offers an unsurpassed level of believability and life-like accuracy, allowing health care learners to intervene instinctively, quickly, consistently and competently with clinical measures that can save a human life.
How it’s used:
- Mass casualty and trauma situations
- Cardiology/ACLS simulations
- Obstetrics simulations
- Ultrasound practice
The Training Center offers both adult and child patient simulators.
