ResusSim Inhospital

Producer: Sophus Medical A/S

PC simulator of basic and advanced life support (ALS). An overview picture shows the emergency situation on the PC screen. The students can interact directly with the members of the emergency medical team and the patient by clicking on them. They also have access to more than 160 different investigations and treatments, including a wide range of drugs, different defibrillators (both manual and AED’s), all common airway techniques, ventilation, and chest compression. In the simulator, the students are confronted with a wide variety of realistic cases (12 patients in the Basics Edition, 28 in Standard, 45 in Professional and 50 in the multiuser version), followed by a thorough evaluation of the treatment given along with suggestions for improvements. In this way, they can practice their diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms and strategies in an easily accessible, safe environment. The scenarios develop differently from time to time and the patients vary in difficulty in order to stimulate recurrent use. The program complies with the International Guidelines 2000, and can be customised to as many different levels as needed using different user profiles.

2. An older program – ResusSim 98 – was developed by Sophus Medical in several languages (Danish, English, French, Italian, Norwegian) and in several local editions (European/UK, French, Italian, Australian/New Zealand, Southern African), each containing the relevant local policy statements and guidelines of the national Resuscitation Councils for that region; being far less advanced than the next generation (ResusSim Inhospital and ResusSim Prehospital), at the time of publication it is to be phased out by the producers
