Brisbane Schill, Antony Fennell, Kedah discussed on Future Tense

Future Tense


This is an ABC podcast. It's meet morning, and I'm off to the Hague. What is the Royal flying? Doctor says in Brisbane Schill meeting with a couple of real dummies. Hello Antony Fennell here. This is feature tents. Maybe I should rephrase just say when I say dummies, I mean, real dummies so much better is it. I mean staff, of course, I'm talking about Doughmi top dummies like mannequins except the high tech variety because today's program is all about simulation about the way clever technology is being used in the medical world to train and to inform. Strives very plice very lodge plice with spas population. When someone leaves on a property alone wife, many Kedah, then they'd held the all fun. Doctor service is an amazing. We're going. Shen we provide emergency care and probably healthcare to allots loss over mud stri. It's an iconic service but its mission to make emergency medical care. Available industries ampakine regional areas is an expensive one in Queensland the RFID. Yes has justed up in you immersive training facility, and I'm off to meet Ronin Sweeney, their manager of clinical, training and development. Run at high. I Anthony how are you? Thanks. This is the Pacific through here. Please follow me. I'll bring you in. All right. Okay. What just explain this Rimkus? What are we looking at? Well, we're currently in the clinical innovation and learning center, which is dedicated towards supporting inter professional clinical training for doctors and nurses. It's a highly immersive space as you can see on the three walls, we have ICU setting. We have a mannequin on a stretcher in the middle of the room. And it looks like a typical intensive care setting. It looks like we're in a Theta, but the screen is all around your screen just pans around the room it does. So it's quite a reasonably excise room. So it's about four meters in diameter, and we have three walls wrapped with the I guess live dynamic intensive care unit. So you'll see people moving back and forth, and it gives that sense of being in an actual healthcare clinical space. The vision displayed on the walls can be changed at the push a button you can find yourself in a farmhouse on an as strip. Oh by the side of the road in the dusty outback. It's all about creating a Taylor. Of training environment. We're trying to bridge this gap between asking people to suspend their disbelief and actually the real clinical setting. And we're finding ready that we're gaining tremendous success and the feedback from participants is that this really does give them that extra bit of triggering. So that the critical thinking processes are happening more fluently and the beginning to accept that. This actually is a more of a lifelike environment that they're experiencing it's interactive as well, isn't it explained that that side of it too highly interactive what I might do is just grab this tablet, and it will allow me to change the environment. So what I'm going to do is put up a typical I guess red dirt type of setting that we might attend and that will give you an idea of the type of background that we can we can create. So this is quite interesting. So I'll just open this one up and what it can do over. Here is just show you on the other wall a button that will give us some vital signs. This is really important to moving the patient journey from a treatment pathway point of view for clinicians, and it's supporting the critical thinking, and so they may have performed interventions. Now, they get to see some of the vital signs. We also have a monitor on the wall. So as they apply sats, monitor to check oxygenation or non invasive blood pressure from the arm. We can begin to populate the other monitor up and the up on the wall with that kind of data for them. So it really does start moving the treatment plan forward, which is really important. Now, it's easy to see how this type of hightech simulated training environment can save time and money, but the elephant in the room. He's the dummy in the room, a freakish looking mannequin with moving is who really hasn't been taking care of himself. Can't read. So this mannequins quite unique because it has pillory reaction, it can we can recreate bloodshot eyes. We recreate a head injury. For example, where one people is blown pupil might be pinpoint for example, or an opiate overdose which opioids community, unfortunately are becoming more prevalent. And so that would be a wonderful trigger for a clinician. If they looked into the rise. They would begin to get these cues that will give them an idea. What's wrong? Then as we moved in the mannequin, we, of course, can talk through the mannequin. So we can be the voice we can allow for that patient interaction. If the patient has a level of consciousness, we can put blood fluid in the ears to create things like Cerebrospinal fluid supporting possible head injury. Evasive skull fracture. We can insulate the mannequin we can put in advanced Airways. We can also ventilate the patient. We can use a lot of our equipment that we carry such as say the Hamilton ventilator, we can incubate in them connect the mannequin to the ventilator just as they would do for. A real patient. We get rising full spontaneously in the chest. So in other words, this could be a breathing patient, but who has a weasel and the chest, not breathing at the moment. I have to say, but it was breathing before it was I just activated an acne state. So in other words, the mannequins not breathing intentionally. So that would give a strong Hugh to or clinicians that they need to do something quickly. So I guess medical professionals are used to training manikins. But this is a really this is a high tech advance mannequin is new it is it's all about supporting I guess the broad range of interventions because we employ creek care trained, doctors, nurses. So they're highly experienced the really the tip of the iceberg in terms of their experience and skill set. And so we need to be able to support that level of experience with an appropriate level of training and immersion in the clinical space. So there's a whole variety of tools will use. But this mannequin is a high fidelity mannequin. So we're represent many many patients states it can be quite challenging they walk in. And they're. Confronted with particular environment referendum varmint in the immersive space, and it could be one mannequin patient two mannequins patients that could actually be a person in the room who's playing the role of family members. Well, so while they're going through the training, you or other people could be could be monitoring the situation from outside. Exactly. So what we do is. We have a way glass or mirror behind us. And that's where the educator team will sit there able to push the scenario forward. We're able to record the scenario. So for example, if a couple of key moments in the scenario that we wanted to make some notes about to come back to in the debrief because the debrief is really where we can consolidate all of those key learning act comes, and that's where the best learning actually happens for the the clinicians involved, and we can play back certain components of the video that was recorded, and it can be very powerful and supporting their learning. It's very easy when you're in a pressurized environment to think you said or did something. But then to have, you know, the power of video playback to demonstrate the well as much as you know, you intended saying that didn't actually come at your in that scenario, and it's not to be used as a stick to be people. It's really a way of solving puzzles. Hurts. Elsewhere
