Transesophageal Echocardiography Training Simulator From Simbionix Helps Learners Master Clinical Skills
CLEVELAND, June 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ –
The transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) procedure is an advanced echocardiography
assessment with a specialized probe that allows main sections of the heart and great
vessels to be clearly demonstrated from the esophagus. This procedure is safe when
properly conducted, but in rare circumstances it can cause serious and even fatal
That is why Simbionix USA Corporation [http://simbionix.com ], the world’s leading
provider of medical simulators, is pleased to present its new TEE module
[http://simbionix.com/simulators/us-mentor/library-of-modules/tee ] for the U/S Mentor(TM)
[http://simbionix.com/simulators/us-mentor ]. This simulated procedure provides training
in the evaluation of native valve diseases, prosthetic valve dysfunction, congenital or
acquired heart diseases such as atrial fibrillations, coronary thromboses, coronary
stenoses and more.
Guided step-by-step procedural tasks for standard views acquisition include anatomy
recognition and cover the entire protocol including the mid esophageal, upper esophageal,
transgastric and deep transgastric regions.
This TEE module helps learners avoid inaccurate acquisition and interpretation of
images that can lead to improper clinical decisions, all the while providing experience to
operators who are essential to the success of the procedure.
The module’s clinical cases present realistic scenarios with increasing diagnostic
complexity. Severity customization of the abnormal findings offers users of varied
experience levels the opportunity to practice without patient participation.
“Simbionix strives to increase patient safety by providing trainees with solutions to
refine their skills and diagnostic sensibilities even before they set foot in the
operating room,” said Mr. Gary Zamler, the company’s CEO. “Using this realistic module
will also benefit trainees by allowing them to practice a diversity of pathological
conditions and diagnostic complexity.”
