Drager GT5400 Neonatal Ambulance Isolette

The GT5400 incorporates high performance components that are essential for the care of a neonate, including an incubator, ventilator, monitor, infusion pumps, all support equipment and more. This equipment was provided to us by Draeger and is available for use in your simulations.

  • System meets global standards
  • Real-time monitoring – provides continuous surveillance
  • Seamless mechanical connectivity and compatibility with one system for helicopter, airplane, or land ambulance
  • Flexible ventilation supports breathing, while an active humidity system reduces risk of lung injury

On April 7th- April 10th, NYSIM hosted the Simulation as a Teaching Tool faculty development course. This is the 3rd year that we’ve held this international and interprofessional course - 21 participants from Brazil, Ecuador, and the US joined us in this fully interactive course. Participants from medicine, nursing, and mid-wifery were immersed together in small group prac-tice, large group discussions, role plays, and full scale simulations over four days. Feedback from the partici-pants were overwhelmingly positive. We look forward to hosting this course again in 2016, and hope to see you there!

NYSIM Fellows Kristen Uquillas and Halley Ruppel co-chaired the Symposium for Fellows in Healthcare Simulation on May 4, 2015 at NYSIM. Over 30 fellows and fellowship directors attended the one day symposium. The sympo-sium provided the opportunity for fellows and fellowship directors to network, share research and capstone pro-jects, and learn about career development in simulation education. Four plenary speakers presented on diverse topics relevant to healthcare simulation fellows. Maria Shiau, MD, presented on promotion and teaching portfoli-os; Barbara DeVoe, DNP, presented on interprofessional learning in simulation; Adam Levine, MD, presented on the role of mentorship in simulation career development; and Rami Ahmed, MD, presented research on the char-acteristics of medical simulation fellowships in North America. Thirteen fellows presented original research and capstone projects, ranging in topics from in-situ simulation to resident remediation and interprofessional learning. The symposium also included a panel of fellowship directors, who discussed the key ele-ments, function and future of simulation fellowships. The symposium concluded with an off-site networking recep-tion. Participant feedback was positive and we are hoping to host this as an annual event.

NYSIM is pleased to announce that Dr. Dena Goffman will be leading a workshop entitled “Collaborative Teams: Optimizing Patient Care and Outcomes” as well as a grand rounds entitled “Fostering Obstetric Simulation & Safety Initiatives Through Collaboration” on Tuesday March 31, 2015 at NYSIM. Dena Goffman, MD, FACOG, is currently an Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology & Women’s Health at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Director of Maternal Safety & Simulation at Montefiore Medical Center. She has a strong interest in improving pa-tient safety and quality in obstetrics. Much of her work focuses on the use of simulation, team training and imple-mentation of evidence based guidelines to achieve this goal. Although her clinical background is in Obstetrics & Gynecology, Dr. Goffman’s workshop and grand rounds will be widely applicable to other disciplines as she has participants think critically about implementation of new team training initiatives or augmentation of existing pro-grams as well the role of simulation to help achieve common patient safety goals and objectives.
