With supplemental oxygen supplies became critically scarce in some countries due to COVID-19, a team at the University of Florida Health’s Center for Safety, Simulation and Advanced Learning Technologies, or CSSALT, conceived a novel way to prolong the life of oxygen cylinders by reducing oxygen waste.
Our team will be participating in a newly funded study, titled “Improving breast radiotherapy setup and delivery using mixed reality visualization,” in collaboration with the UF Health Proton Therapy Institute at UF Health Jacksonville.
We are excited to announce that Samsun (Sem) Lampotang, Ph.D., FSSH, FAIMBE, has received the prestigious 2022 J.S. Gravenstein Award from the Society for Technology in Anesthesia (STA).
The award is named for Joachim S. “Nik” Gravenstein, M.D. (1925-2009), Lampotang’s mentor and a driving force in advancing anesthesia technology, patient simulation, and anesthesia patient safety for more than 30 years.
Updated: June 7, 2021 Summary In an oxygen-pinching technique developed and refined on a model-driven, oxygen-consuming Human Patient Simulator, the patient or a caregiver manually interrupts oxygen flow from a […]
Advancing patient safety by training clinicians to use existing devices, procedures, and drugs better via simulation and re-designing devices, procedures, and drug delivery.
We endeavor to foster communication and collaboration among the diverse UF Academic Health Center simulation entities and maximize effective use of all simulation resources.
We strive to provide a framework and template for other colleges and institutions to identify, discover, and list their simulation activities and to function as a virtual simulation center.
