Dr. David Grant demonstrates sternotomy, retraction, and cannulation on The Chamberlain Group’s Perfusion Beating Heart Trainer (#1362) and Retractable Sternum. This video was part of Dr. Grant’s keynote address Collaborative Frameworks Improving Healthcare at IPSSW 2017.
Our patient mannekin, paired with a Perfusion Simulation System such as Califia or Orpheus™, offers a fully immersive, high-fidelity, point-of-care ECMO simulation for CPB team training. In collaboration with Dr. Grant we have been extending the capabilities of the trainer and continue to explore opportunities to expand its range.
Dr. Fann of Stanford University demonstrates the practice of vessel anastomosis on a Vessel Anastomosis Trainer* from The Chamberlain Group. This Trainer was developed under the guidance of the Thoracic Surgery Director’s Association (TSDA) and Dr. Fann. This instructional video (from Top Gun Cardiothoracic) is designed to assist surgical residents with the acquisition and refinement of needle handling techniques and anastomotic skills.
*NOTE: This is an earlier version of the trainer and is no longer available. Our Pocket Vessel Anastomis Trainer (#1389) differs from the one in the video only in that it has a clear cover and lacks side-arms.
