Emergency Training and Simulation

The Institute for Clinical Education, Simulation, Innovation and Safety (ICESIS) at Crozer-Chester Medical Center is a state-of-the-art hospital simulation laboratory that provides hands-on clinical education, training and simulation to healthcare professionals and students. Through the use of advanced patient simulator mannequins, physicians, nurses, paramedics and other healthcare professionals can learn about a variety of potentially high-risk patient care scenarios in a safe environment. 

What is ICESIS?

ICESIS at Crozer-Chester Medical Center provides hands-on training via simulation for medical professionals in a safe, yet realistic environment. Located in the 1 East wing of Crozer, ICESIS is designed to resemble a small-scale hospital. The lab consists of separate rooms for lectures and individual skills training, as well as breakout rooms that mimic hospital settings, including medical/surgical, pediatrics and emergency departments, operating rooms and other clinical settings. 

Instructors for ICESIS originate from a wide variety of specialties and departments, including anesthesia, emergency, EMS, medicine, nursing, OB/GYN, pediatrics, surgery and trauma.  

Sim Man, Sim Baby, Trauma Man

Healthcare professionals learn specific skills using state-of-the-art, interactive equipment, including patient simulator mannequins, Sim Man, Sim Baby and Trauma Man. 

Sim Man is a high-fidelity, computer-controlled mannequin designed to simulate any type of clinical experience. Sim Man is used for Advanced Life Support (ALS) courses and has a pulse at the usual pulse points (carotid, radial and femoral), blood pressure, respiration and electrocardiography (ECG) waves. Sim Man can take a live defibrillator shock, has an arm for venous cannulation and an anatomically-correct airway for endotracheal intubation.  When users asks Sim Man what is wrong, he is programmed with a number of verbal responses for healthcare professionals to make appropriate care decisions. 

Sim Baby replicates an infant and is used in Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) courses. 

Trauma Man is used to teach advanced trauma life support (ATLS) to physicians, enabling physicians or residents to practice trauma surgical procedures, including tube thoracostomy, Cricothyrotomy, pericardial centesis and diagnostic peritoneal lavage (DPL).
