Before working in hospitals, health centers, emergency services nurses have spent 3 years (graduates) and 4 years (graduates) in nursing schools. That is the place where we learn, we know many aspects of our profession and above all we train. A very important part of our training is the practices we carry out in Nursing schools. The Nursing Training Manikins work perfect there.
In here simulation is being incorporated into the educational landscape through simulation centers based on different models. These centers meet various requirements. They are usually interactive spaces, thanks to the use of ICTs, they have training laboratories, and analysis and feedback workshop rooms. They reproduce a real care environment and have state-of-the-art technical devices for patient care.
The person in charge of the Center for Simulation and Innovation in Health (CSIS) of Tecnocampus, Carolina Chabrera, very kindly pays us a visit to the facilities. “The objective is to facilitate and promote the development and comprehensive training of students and health professionals, using the most innovative learning methods.” “It is a new learning model that follows the teaching quality standards and where innovation and research are the fundamental pillars.” The Nursing Training Manikins are no doubt useful in this matter now.
What does the simulation center provide to students?
Clinical Simulation provides us with a new learning and training method where knowledge, skills and human values are intertwined. Simulation, as defined by the Center for Medical Simulation, is a situation or scenario created to allow people to experience the representation of a real situation in order to practice, learn, evaluate, test or acquire knowledge.
Manikin and the Perfect Choices Now
The Multi-Functional Nursing Manikin Kit allows medical students to practice suturing techniques on synthetic skin which resembles the skin of a human patient. In the model it is possible to make surgical points and place surgical staples of varying depth levels depending on the type of wound being treated. The device represents the different layers of the skin such as the epidermis, the dermis, the lipid bilayer and the muscles in order to ensure that the skin of the model is as close to reality as possible. In addition, the kit has a support cushion, suture scissors, forceps, nylon sutures, a scalpel, among other accessories.
This acupuncture simulator is made up of five models that represent different parts of the body: the head, the ear, the hand, the foot and a miniature statue of a man with a size of 48 cm high. This pedagogical support facilitates the learning of acupuncture techniques thanks to the fact that the energy points are marked on the model. In this way, you can perform needle training on the areas where you want to practice acupuncture. The Multi-Functional Nursing Manikin is used perfectly there.
Now that we’ve told you about the best pedagogical dummies and simulators, just choose the one that best suits your academic needs. We assure you that you will have high quality educational material which will help you prepare in the best possible way to perform different medical treatments during your professional work. Likewise, we remind you that in our catalog we have a wide variety of models (different from those exposed above) which we assure you will allow you to carry out optimal medical training. Find all of our mannequins and simulators in the Anatomy section of our website.
