The Surgical Sam “chassis ” (#4094) can be configured with interchangeable anatomical modules: the Sam Pediatric Cardiothoracic Module (#4095) or Sam Pediatric General Surgery Module (#4096). Emergent resternotomy and redo laparotomy scenarios, developed by the faculty at Boston Children’s Hospital, have been repeatedly performed with each configuration 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.
Surgical Sam is the world’s first beating heart, breathing, bleeding, high fidelity team trainer for pediatric surgery, developed with Boston Children’s Hospital as the centerpiece of their team-training initiatives in pediatric cardiothoracic and general surgery. Unlike other patient mannequins that simulate only basic physiology, Surgical Sam ‘moves the needle’ on pediatric surgical team training by allowing important steps of surgery to really happen – allowing OR teams to fully immerse in simulations to optimize performance, safety and outcomes for children.
Co-developed by The Chamberlain Group and Boston Children’s Hospital Simulator Program (SIMPeds) as the centerpiece of their team training initiatives in pediatric surgery, Surgical Sam is a modular system representing a 14-month-old infant. The base unit, with intubatable airway, incision- and suture-compatible skin, and bilateral radial pulses, accepts specialty modules for multi-discipline team training scenarios.
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.
