    4G requests

    We just had class on our 3G and I do really like him, But- when we mentioned wanting grips etc, Meg said that she usually called those 4G requests. So I say- Lets start a 4G request list of our own. I'll start-

    Advanced 

    Grips

     Foot movement

    Babinski- positive and negative

    Basic

    Oxygen Therapy- there are different levels for Venti Mask- why not Nasal cannulla? 1L, 2L, 3L, 4L, 5L, 6L- Guess I'll create my own for now.

    Somehow stop the creaking in the chest so they can hear the heart and lung sounds! Talk to Dr. Gordan - Harvey doesn't creak!

    Feel free to chime in!

    Re: 4G requests

    Hey Barb,

    Great idea!  We also just had our course with Meg (fabulous) and have some thoughts....like female breasts?  Ears that actually accommodate O2 devices more securely?  Bilat IV access arms?  Femoral pulses that are not identified in the rectangles....and ulnar pulses?? 

    Yes I know I want alot.....next I want him to walk around the room too!  ;)

    Keep on thinkin'!

    My co worker also wants cyanotic nailbeds- fingers and toes- I forgot to include that one! You are so right about the ears- that really frustrates my first time users!

    Re: 4G requests

    Let's add in

    a radial arterial puncture site for ABGs

    being able to use any recorded voice in automode

    obese chest- male and female

    pregnant chest/belly

    could he be a little more androgenous?  a little less masculine?

    Re: 4G requests

    I agree with the above, would also like to see the circumoral cyanosis work as well as the newby. My students keep asking why he has blue teeth.

    Auto Mode scenarios need to start in the least severe mode and allow the instructor to increase severity as appropriate to the participant.

    Re: 4G requests

    In 3G we have the ability to turn off the internal compressor when the system is standing by or for whatever reason, my request might be to add another valve that was controlled by the instructor application (similar to making the chest rise/pneumotorax inflate) that just releases the pressure on the compressor when it isn't in use or being shut down for the night.  I know my right leg skin has been getting pretty dirty and always finding that valve can be a pain sometimes.  :-D  I'm sure I'll have some more stuff for the list soon too!

    Re: 4G requests

    Integrating voice changing software into the SimMan software would be really useful for operators who have to pretend to be the opposite gender during scenarios, and maybe some female chest skins to enable us to make the mannikin female a bit more easily

    Re: 4G requests

    I have a couple of software upgrades/ alteration as well: 

    I don't like being unable to change programmed scenarios on the fly- that means you have to anticipate and program for every correct AND incorrect action possible.  The incorrect ones are sometimes hard to predict...

    You should be able to use voices in programmed scenarios- I usually speak for my own patient, but I do use the wav files for some things and I don't understand why they are locked down.

    We need female versions of difficult breathing .wav files.  Once again- half your population is female.

    Lastly- although this is under the physical part of 3G- there are finally some brown skin tones available from Laerdal, while I applaud it and think it's great, we can't all just buy new mannequins, just for the skin tone. There needs to be a retro fit option and 3G is the easiest one to offer it on.  90% of his skin zips or rolls off! Please sell us some 3G replacement skin so that our mannequins can reflect the population we serve.

    Re: 4G requests

    Hi,

    Regarding being able to change the recorded vocal sounds on the fly: The vocal sounds are only locked down if the patient have no pulse or the respiratory rate is 0. If the patient has pulse and is breathing you should be able to change the vocal sounds on the fly.

    Re: 4G requests

    Correct about vocals not working when SimMan not able to breath.  But if you mean that you can't add vocals, you can import wav files that you record.

    Re: 4G requests

    I would really like to see some updates for the software that allows a much more flexible file system. We have 3 original SimMen, 2 3G's, a baby, and a newB. Its very frustrating trying to keep track of 30 trend files, 8 handler files, and 4 media files for every simulation and then make sure they are all correctly updated on every computer and in the correct folder where they can be accessed on the fly.

    Re: 4G requests

    Since I just superglued lower teeth back in- again- for all Laerdal's manikins- get rid of the soft teeth- upper and lower, and/or, give the jaw more mobility so that inserting oral airway does not ruin the teeth. If we teach the traditional method of inserting upside down and then flipping, it is really hard on the teeth. The mouth does not open wide enough to turn it without hitting the teeth, especially for an inexperienced student. Between "First 5 Minute" training for all new hires and ACLS, our guys have oral airways inserted A LOT!   I know I'm in the South- but we really don't have a bunch of people walking around with missing teeth, so I don't want my manikins to have missing teeth!
