The Sam Cardiothoracic Module (#4095) is designed to be housed in the Surgical Sam (#4094) chassis to provide a high fidelity team trainer for pediatric cardiothoracic surgery.
CT Module INCLUDES:
- Retractable Sternum
- Ventilatible Lungs
- Hemodynamic flow to the chest cavity
- Pediatric Surgical Sam Beating Heart (#4108) with controllable heart rate
- Replaceable, Cannulatable Right Atrium (#4120)
- Replaceable, Cannulatable Aorta (#4119)
The beating heart can be fed by, and synchronized with, the output of a patient monitor for enhanced physiologic realism. This pediatric trainer for cardiac team training provides a platform to simulate the challenge of achieving hemostasis during an emergency return to the OR.
Surgical Sam is built on a “chassis” (#4094) with interchangeable thoracic and abdominal anatomy modules available; the Sam Pediatric Cardiothoracic Module (#4095) or the Sam Pediatric General Surgery Module (#4096). Surgical Sam represents a 14 month old infant of average length and head circumference.

Emergent resternotomy and redo laparotomy scenarios, developed by the faculty at Boston Children’s Hospital, have been repeatedly performed with each module by full OR teams, as part of a multi-year study, under the guidance of the BCH Simulator Program (SIMPeds) director and principal investigator, Peter Weinstock, MD, PhD. BCH SIMPeds and Chamberlain collaborated to bring Surgical Sam to life, meeting the heretofore unmet need of immersive team training that engages the entire OR, including surgery, in the care of the smallest of patients.
