Watch the #SG14AUS Keynote Now:
Dr. Anthony Lewis, BSc PhD MB BCh FRCA FANZCA, is a Specialist in Anesthesia and Retrieval Medicine at St George Hospital and Greater Sydney Area HEMS in Sydney. With extensive experience in medical education, Anthony is a Course Director for the Australian Resuscitation Council, has created multiple training courses both in prehospital medicine and anesthesia and has an interest in mobile simulation technology. Seeing the need for an alternative to traditional simulation technologies, Anthony is the co-founder of iSimulate Pty Ltd which produces advanced mobile simulation solutions. Clinically, he has interests in anesthesia for cytoreductive, major spinal, trauma and plastic surgery. He is a member of the St George Resuscitation committee and is the ANZCA Supervisor of Training for GSA-HEMS.iSimulate is one of an identified need to make simulation technology easier, cheaper and more flexible that existing technology. Created by Medical Educators in Australia, iSimulate started as a idea and has progressed to become a company who's products are used across the world. In this keynote, learn why and how two medical educators decided to challenge a simulation philosophy that “ever more” technologically advanced manikins are better. Instead, they took the cumbersome technology out of the manikin and placed it into an user-friendly iPad.
As iSimulate hardware technology is generic, many options exist to enhance the simulation experience. Apple TV can be used to wirelessly slave the monitor screen to a projector or additional monitor in another room. Bluetooth speakers can be added and placed in a manikin to simulate speech and sounds. The advantage of mobile technology for in-situ simulation is the portability and speed of set-up. Finally, as mobile devices are designed to be used in a connected world, iSimulate has developed it's own online community site, allowing users to connect throughout the world. iSimulate has a simple mantra: To use the best of current mobile technology to create products that are more advanced, simpler to use and more cost effective than traditional simulation solutions.
