LaGuardia Nursing Simulation Lab functions as a mini-hospital and contains two SimMan 3G high fidelity manikins, two labor and delivery manikins, two newborn and some low fidelity VitalSim manikins. Students can apply their theoretical and practical knowledge in a dynamic learning environment. The Sim Lab has an attached debriefing room with a wall size double sided mirror with "live video-feed" to a large monitor to review all the simulated scenarios.
Central DuPage Hospital to get new simulation center
Realistic Responses Kevin is the most life-like SIM man(simulation mannequin) the nursing lab has ever had, with new technological advances such as real sweat and tears.
Looks like another rough day for SimMan
