HPS (Human Patient Simulator)

Producer: METI (Medical Education Technologies, Inc.)

The Human Patient Simulator (HPS) - a computer-model-driven, full-sized mannekin - delivers hands-on experience in true-to-life scenarios that swiftly change to meet instructors’ goals. The ultra sophisticated and highly versatile HPS blinks, speaks and breathes, has a heartbeat and a pulse, and accurately mirrors human responses to such procedures as CPR, intravenous medication, intubation, ventilation, and catheterisation. It contains a profound array of intricately programmed systems - cardiovascular, pulmonary, pharmacological, metabolic, genitourinary (male and female), and neurological - which make it an easily controlled teaching laboratory where students can practice again and again. Important features and procedures available include: reactive eyes for neurological assessment, realistic airway, carotid, brachial, radial, femoral, popliteal and pedal pulses, thumb twitch, pneumothorax decompression, independent chest excursion, pericardiocentesis and peritoneal lavage.
