Meridian meets Sim Man 1

The Human Patient Simulation Lab at ISU-Meridian includes computerized human patient simulators (HPS), two adults and one infant, and one mechanical mannequin, a birthing mother.

The human patient simulators (HPS) have variable heart rates, respiration and blood pressure, display oxygen saturation, have palpable pulses as well as heart sounds, lung sounds, bowel sounds, Korotkoff sounds and vocal sounds. The mannequins have IV arms with sites for subcutaneous and intramuscular injections. Defibrillation/monitoring and external pacing can be used on the HPS. Male or female genitalia are interchangeable for urinary catheterization.

The human patient simulators are used to conduct a variety of different trauma and resuscitation scenarios, which include procedures such as establishing emergency airways and cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

The ISU Human Patient Simulation Lab is available to ISU academic programs, other health professions training programs, first responder/EMS agencies and health professionals in the community on a space available basis. Contact Ellen Jones,, (208) 373 1760, for information on fees and scheduling.
