SimMan® is the world's most widely used advanced patient simulator. He has played a significant role in the proliferation of simulation training as an approach to promote patient safety and help improve patient outcomes.

After 10 years with SimMan in service, Laerdal Medical is now set to make the benefits of simulation even more accessible, building on the third generation of SimMan with SimMan Essential.

A Complete Simulation Solution

Simulation has gathered increasing acceptance over the years as an integral part of healthcare training and a fundamental approach to improving patient safety practice.  The challenge now for healthcare educators is to make simulation more accessible to the wider healthcare community so that the educational benefits can be realized by the industry at large.

SimMan Essential is a realistic, full body adult, wireless patient simulator with advanced clinical functionality to teach critical skills.  With 'simplicity of use' being a fundamental principle of its design, both novice and experienced instructors can now take full advantage of the benefits of simulation.  Built to be rugged, reliable, networkable and mobile, SimMan Essential makes simulation easier and more realistic than ever before.  With a full complement of patient cases and courseware to ease instructor prep time, and the availability of comprehensive Technical and Educational Services - SimMan Essential is the solution set to define a new era in simulation training.

The Importance of Mobile Simulation

In situ and interdisciplinary team training are now key requirements of simulation training.  This enables multi-disciplined healthcare professionals to come together in their work environment and rehearse both common clinical scenarios and critical incidents for improved real patient outcomes.

Commenting on Laerdal's advances into mobile simulation, Martin Hetland, Director of Strategic Marketing at Laerdal, said, "SimMan Essential can facilitate diverse and versatile patient scenarios in a range of operational environments. From an emergency in a remote location to definitive care in a hospital or from a war-torn battlefield to a busy hospital ward – we wanted to create a mobile simulation solution that injects a greater realism into scenario based training to further enhance and contextualize learning objectives in preparation for real patient encounters."

Overcoming environmental challenges

Increasing the accessibility of simulation to a wider community of healthcare professionals in a diverse range of workplaces means that the simulator must be able to withstand extensive handling, be easy to use and operate reliably in a variety of environments and terrains. A robust and rugged design is essential – a feature that has differentiated Laerdal products from its rivals since the first Resusci Anne in 1960. Like SimMan before, SimMan Essential has been built to last.

A Legacy of Learning

SimMan is a milestone in Laerdal's 50 year history of creating high quality basic, intermediate and advanced simulation training solutions for healthcare professionals.  SimMan has helped to transform simulation into a viable and essential training solution in healthcare.

Laerdal is proud to introduce SimMan Essential in the spirit of further advancing the potential and value of simulation training in healthcare.  Laerdal is confident that SimMan Essential will take over the mantle of its predecessors, further increasing the use of this valuable training methodology in support of the company's long held mission – helping save lives.
