Human Patient Simulator

Mount Marty is extremely fortunate to possess a Human Patient Simulator (HPS), better known as "Marty." The simulator is life-size and is able to simulate real-life physiologic and pathophysiologic processes. This allows students to experience realistic and rarely seen clinical events within the safety of a laboratory environment. Below are just a few examples of the clinical scenarios available via simulation:

• Routine anesthesia inductions 
• Laryngospasm on emergence 
• Bradycardia and hypotension 
• Difficult airway management 
• OB amniotic fluid embolus 
• Malignant hyperthermia 
• Anaphylaxis 
• ACLS algorithms
