The Institute for Simulation and Interprofessional Studies Training Highlight: Simulator-Based Cardiac Surgery

(1 comment)

Almost every Thursday, the Institute hosts the Simulator Based Cardiac Surgery Training under the supervision of Dr. Nahush Mokadam, Lester and Connie LeRoss Endowed Professor and Associate Professor in the University of Washington’s Department of Surgery.

Residents in the division of Cardiothoracic Surgery train in the Institute to improve cardiac surgical skills such as basic techniques and instrument use in a variety of scenarios ranging from communications to emergency-based simulations.  The training modules use the Ramphal Cardiac Surgery Simulator; this training utilizes a porcine heart with an intraventricular balloon which thus simulates a beating heart.  Examples of other trainings are anastomosis and acute intraoperative aortic dissection. Through continuous “perfect” practice in various scenarios, these simulations aim to improve patient safety and quality of care for cardiothoracic patients in UW Medicine.
