Apollo Simulation Centre

VISION: “DO WELL ALL THAT YOU DO”
MISSION: Safe and quality patient care delivery through Achievement and maintenance of excellence in education and research”

The Apollo Simulation Centre (ASC) is a Post Graduate teaching and training institute and is based out of the Apollo Vanagaram campus. Apollo Speciality Hospital, Vanagaram is a multi-disciplinary, corporate tertiary care hospital serving the western part of Chennai.

With the vast network of knowledge resources in the form of experienced faculty running innumerable courses in private sector, Apollo Hospitals is well placed to bring simulation-based training to current and future healthcare professionals.

What is ASC?
ASC is a state-of-the-art building with the latest Simulation equipments spanning all the departments offering PG training. The Centre has an array of sophisticated task trainers through which new skills can be learnt by Post Graduate students in training, without causing harm to the patient. Simulation based training has been in existence for years in the western world enhancing the clinical skills of doctors, nurses and paramedical staff. Experienced Doctors and practicing Physicians can hone and update their existing skills and add new advanced ones to their armamentarium.

What is the need for a high fidelity simulation centre?
The Government of India mandates simulation based training in all undergraduate programs. It is only prudent that post graduate and super speciality doctors have a preemptive knowledge of difficult clinical situations before treating real patients.

Task trainers
The cutting-edge technology used in the realistic simulation of anatomical details, allows learners to acquire skills in a true -to-life condition, without causing harm to the patient, on adult, paediatric and obstetric mannequins. The difficulty levels can be manipulated to suit the needs of the learner, especially in airway management and resuscitation, and the feedback software incorporated in the task trainers provides an objective assessment for skill acquaintance.

Ultra Sound Simulator
The innovative ultrasound simulator enables learners to correlate the scanned image simultaneously with the internal anatomy for better proficiency. The sections of anatomy can be demonstrated in a three- dimensional view to enhance the understanding of learners. The simulator is also equipped with modules for ultrasound guided interventions.

Endo-Laparoscopy Simulator
The endo-laparoscopy simulators are equipped with up-to-date technology to help learners become confident and adept at hand-eye coordination and equipment dexterity. Basic and advanced procedures in laparoscopy, bronchoscopy, hysteroscopy and endoscopy can be learnt and updated using the high-tech instruments.

Endo-Vascular Simulator
The vascular intervention simulator is the latest and the first of its kind in Asia, and has provision for training in intricate vascular abnormalities. Real patient images can be incorporated and training undertaken before a complex procedure is performed on the patient.

High-Fidelity Scenario based simulators
The futuristic high fidelity mannequins in customizable simulation environments can help mimic real life scenarios. Sudden emergencies and complications in critical care, obstetrics and pediatrics can be simulated in these lifelike mannequins enabling learners to respond and experience the implications of their decisions. The feedback and debriefing that follows the scenarios will be aimed at identifying human factors that lead to errors and will help in empowering learners to handle crisis situations in a more composed and evidence-based manner. This kind of immersive learning helps in crisis resource management, improves decision making, boosts communication skills and encourages ideal team behaviour. These realistic scenarios help in improving patient safety and quality of care.

Why ASC?
At ASC, technology is at its best, with world-class mannequins and equipment from global leaders in simulation. Proficient and expert Faculty and trainers make training effortless and enjoyable. The course content is up-to-date and learners will be provided with pre- course materials and post- course follow up content. Here, learners are encouraged to question, commit mistakes, do repeated deliberate practice and develop competency in a psychologically safe environment.
