Practice makes perfect, but how to practice for high-risk scenarios which occur only rarely
Physicians at the Cleveland Clinic have been using the ASL 5000™ Breathing Simulator. According to Dr. Ibrahim Sammour, MD, Neonatologist with Cleveland Clinic’s Children’s,
“The simulator allows us to set up rare scenarios, or high-risk situations that require a quick intervention, in a safe and controlled setting. This approach helps ensure a baseline competency of physicians coming out of training.”
In addition to training, Cleveland Clinic has been using the ASL 5000 to test how different ventilators interact with specific patient populations.
