Medical society hosts simulation training to help reduce medical complications

The Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI) will provide physicians a unique opportunity to practice the latest procedures for treating cardiovascular disease in a risk-free environment. During its 29th Annual Scientific Sessions, May 1013, SCAI will host the Boston Scientific Mobile SimSuite Simulation Training Unit, a state-of-the-art replication of a cardiac catheterization lab equipped with realistic simulation technology. This hands-on training facility allows physicians to practice new procedures or use new technologies in a realistic, yet safe and risk-free, environment before treating actual patients.

The Boston Scientific Mobile SimSuite Training Unit is a 35-foot bus, complete with a pre-procedure patient briefing area, an area for performing interventions on a simulated patient named Simantha, and a post-procedure computer station for providing the operator feedback on his or her decisions in the case.

Physicians can perform simulated interventions with lesions in the coronary arteries that are considered "high risk" and are difficult to treat because of their type, location, or size. Historically, these cases required bypass surgery; however, break-through technologies now increase the likelihood of successfully treating these difficult cases with less invasive procedures.

"Simulation training not only gives physicians a unique opportunity to learn new approaches to challenging cases, but it also allows us to hone our skills and techniques," said Mark Turco, MD, FSCAI, an active SCAI member and faculty for Boston Scientific's high-risk coronary simulation training program. "SCAI is pleased to welcome Boston Scientific to the meeting and to enable our attendees to have hands-on training in the latest treatment methods alongside the more traditional continuing medical education provided at the meeting."

Approximately 1,000 interventional cardiologists are expected to attend this year's Annual S
