A pair of nurses at Logan Regional Hospital surrounded the bed of a newborn infant on Wednesday morning. The child, affectionately referred to as “Baby Tory” by the staff, was experiencing difficulties breathing on her own — intubation needed to be performed, and time was of the essence.

 

But however lifelike their young patient seemed from a distance, a closer look at the newborn revealed the truth — she was actually a remarkably human simulation, a computer program designed to look, feel and react exactly like a newborn exhibiting any medical ailment the staff programs.

Super Tory is being hailed as the world's most advanced neonatal patient simulator and is the first that can go into cardiac arrest and be revived with real time chest compression's and a ventilator. The robots skin can even change color when a button triggers respiratory distress. Doctors at Atlanta Children's Hospital and two others are working with the robot to study an array of symptoms including different cries, frowns and skin tones.

 

The robot is meant to give medical staff hands on experience when dealing with tiny patients who often can't express what's bothering them. It offers the opportunity to make a mistake without fatal consequences so that they're ready for human patients

He has the ability to breathe, to blink, to talk, to cry," said Dr. Mina Attaalla, the hospital's simulation education director. "You can also do procedures on him, such as starting an IV." The robot that the hospital uses for medical residents and current doctors, seen in the video above, can even receive medication in the competition under the watchful eyes of other residents and judges

 

In the end, the team from Saint Barnabas won SIM Wars and now has a year's worth of bragging rights. But the teams said the real reward was the experience gained from the competition. "It prepares you to act on your feet, be ready for things that you don't necessarily predict to happen," Hubbard said. "It's good to be able to practice that in a simulated environment so that when you have an actual patient you can do it right," Price said.

If you've ever wondered what it takes to train medical airmen, we get a rare view from inside Luke AFB's Medical Simulation Lab, where airmen train for level 1 trauma and emergencies. For instance, the patients here are dummies with gunshot wounds in simulated stressful conditions to prepare airmen for real-life combat and humanitarian missions.

Hal’s caregivers quickly identified the warning signs of a stroke—facial drooping, arm weakness and speech difficulty—and continued to find red flags. One nurse shined a light in Hal’s eyes, but his pupils remained dilated. Then, Hal’s entire body began to shake.

 

"Stroke is prevalent in the population we serve,” said neurohospitalist Matthew Ho, MD, Queen of the Valley’s Stroke Director. “This training will ensure all of our nurses—whether they are in the emergency department or a patient unit—are proficient at finding risk factors so they can make safer and faster assessments.”

For doctors, learning to make quick decisions in the delivery room can be the difference between life and death. "We are talking about prenatal resuscitation, respiratory distress, heart issues which are not very frequent occurrences in a hospital room, but everyone needs to be well trained," said Great Plains Health pediatrician Dr. Soogandaren Naidoo.

 

They allow us to really hone our skills on the things that we do see on a regular basis," said Great Plains Health obstetrician and gynecologist Dr. Ben Klug. "This as well gives us an opportunity to practice and see some of those things that we don't see." Doctors say simulators Victoria and baby Super Tory do just that.
