Transcript

Narrator – “Participants engage in realistic simulated procedures, usually on a mannequin simulator patient. Teams need to work collaboratively to manage each simulation effectively. There isn’t any testing as part of the network’s course, it’s a chance for teams to interact together in a crisis scenario and reflect on that interaction.”

Narrator – “Members of local surgical teams are trained by NetworkZ to become instructors and lead their teams in simulated training. The main piece of simulation equipment that supports the network’s training is the lateral sin man 3g integrated with bespoke surgical models made by Medic FX.”

How we can solve the problems around a more efficient, more productive operating room.”
