This is interesting how Dr. Oz walks us through how the process works. The volunteer from the audience is a patient who had a stent put in place and talks about the bit of pain in her chest that she experienced when the balloon was put in place, she said it felt like she was having another heart attack.
In the demo they used a defibrillator to bring the patient back after closing off the artery. I found this interesting to watch and educational as well, so if one is ever in this situation, it gives you an idea as to what is going on with the catheter being routed up through the groin area and what is taking place.
We hear talk all the time about simulation and with this life saving technology, I can see how simulation can better prepare for the “real” thing. BD
What happens when you’re rushed to the hospital for a heart attack? Dr. Oz shows heart attack survivor Marietta a life-saving procedure called a cardiac catheterization using the Medical Simulation Corporation’s state-of-the-art simulator.
Medical Simulation Corporation’s Cardiac Catheterization Simulation Technology
Medical Simulation Corporation’s (MSC) endovascular simulator, “Simatha,” featured on The Dr. Oz Show demonstrated a heart attack intervention and how physicians are using this state-of-the-art technology to advance their skills in treating heart attack patients. MSC’s simulation-based education system creates a realistic but risk-free virtual medial environment that enables healthcare professionals to learn and develop necessary skills to safely manage complex disease processes and use new healthcare technologies in a carefully monitored and measured environment.
