Test your cardiac skills in the Simulation Zone

eP5_Story3_smallIn the Simulation Zone, you’ll get hands-on experience and test your cardiac knowledge, skills and critical thinking. Located in Booth 1103 in the Science & Technology Hall, the Simulation Zone offers four types of activities.

The popular Body Interact and the Mechanical Circulatory Support Simulation return this year, and we’ve added Vimedix and TAVR. Vimedix is an innovative ultrasound training platform that supports transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography. View both normal and complex pathology in real time with 3-D augmented reality displays of anatomy, organs and surrounding structures.

The Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement sessions will provide simulation of the TAVR procedure and will consist of cases with anatomical variations. Sessions will include all of the procedural steps required for accurately positioning and deploying an transcatheter aortic valve.

Body Interact is a screen-based 3-D immersive training platform offering dynamic monitoring, dialoguing, diagnostic testing, imaging, drugs, intervention options and performance debriefing.

The Mechanical Circulatory Support Simulation gives users a hands-on opportunity to model adult and pediatric critical scenarios and observe the hemodynamic consequences of conditions, including heart failure and shock.

Visit the Simulation Zone during scheduled sessions (listed below) or drop by at your convenience to experience the devices on your own.
