Simulation Zone offers interactive training

Four specialized areas of cardiac training — where you can test your knowledge, skills and critical thinking — await you in the Simulation Zone, located in the Science & Technology Hall. Treat acute and chronic conditions in a virtual patient; hone your skills in cardiac surgical procedures; model and observe mechanical circulatory support scenarios; immerse your entire team in a critical, acute simulation; and more.

Body Interact, Booth 2149
Body Interact is a screen-based 3-D immersive training platform that virtualizes acute and chronic medical conditions with a lifelike virtual patient. The simulation includes dynamic monitoring, dialoguing, diagnostic tests, medications, imaging, intervention options and performance debriefing.

Cardiovascular Interventional, Booth 2149
Multiple sessions in the Cardiovascular Interventional Simulation will focus on basic through advanced skills in the areas of coronary interventional, electrophysiology, valvular heart disease and peripheral artery disease. You will have the opportunity to practice a wide range of procedures under the guidance of expert clinicians. Plus, you will get hands-on experience using various interventional equipment, such as guidewires, diagnostic catheters, transcatheter heart valves, pacing electrodes, balloons and stents.

Hemodynamic Simulation, Room 206B
Formerly the Mechanical Circulatory Support Simulation, the Hemodynamic Simulation features a total artificial heart mock circulatory loop that provides a hands-on opportunity to model critical scenarios and observe hemodynamic consequences. Both adult and pediatric sessions will be offered and will include scenarios such as inadequate preload/ afterload conditions, chronic heart failure and shock and device obstruction.
