RV Dysf with TR TTE mobile simulator
The HeartWorks simulator greatly enhanced the fidelity of this scenario. The use of ultrasound was key for the team to determine appropriate diagnosis and treatment.

Bringing Ultrasound into Multi-disciplinary Emergency Scenarios

The simulation suite at the University Hospital of South Manchester recently piloted a course aimed at developing and improving how emergencies are managed in cardiac catheter labs and exploring if team training, through a programme of workshops and simulation would be beneficial. Using the HeartWorks TTE mobile simulator, the new Catheter Lab Emergency Management Simulation (CLEMS) course is one of the first to incorporate echocardiography into emergency scenario simulations.
