"Super Tory is the first and only newborn simulator specifically developed to meet the needs of neonatal intensive care professionals training in real environments. Super Tory introduces a host of technological breakthroughs in addition to its lifelike look. New advanced robotics and simulated physiology allow Super Tory to simulate true-to-life clinical presentations and respond to intervention with unparalleled realism."

A big thank you to Katie Gordon, Simulation Educator with the University of Maryland, for again sharing some of her scenarios with thesimtech community. She has sent a pediatric drowning case and a pediatric anaphylaxis reaction to a bee sting case. You can find them in the scenario section.

Also along the lines of free scenarios - Rob Cheeseman, Simulation practitioner with QuEST at the Frimley Health Foundation trust, shared with me this great resource of over 130 free scenarios:
The Health Education England - Thames Valley (HEE TV) ‘Clinical Simulation Scenarios’ library
I will add this great resource to the links page.

Samantha Gower shared this great article with me: Escobar Technologies’ Medical Simulator Is a Real Disrupter

When you are done reading the article go check out more on the Escobar brothers - exciting stuff -

Big news for simulation in Canada. The two major healthcare simulation organizations, SIM-one and the Canadian Network for Simulation in Healthcare (CNSH), have agreed to integrate by September, 2017.
The Boards of Directors of SIM-one and CNSH have signed a guiding principles document providing a time frame and process for integrating Canada’s largest healthcare simulation networks. This integration will create an interprofessional and interdisciplinary network to improve and expand programs and services for the simulation community across the country.
