At Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children (RMHC), we're committed to providing excellent quality care to all families. Sometimes, this means bringing education directly to your neighborhood. We're thrilled to announce the creation of our Mobile Training Center, an RV that is outfitted with the most technically advanced classroom technology and simulation manikins available.

Our Simulation Manikins

Just like your kids, these manikins come in varying sizes: Ryan, our 16-year-old full body adolescent; Max, our 6-year-old full body child; Hope, our 1-month-old full body newborn and Chloe, our 25-week premature infant. These High Fidelity Simulation Manikins offer a wide-range of clinical functionality to teach the stabilization skills for airway, breathing and circulation management. 

While all of our manikins are top-notch, Chloe is really unique. She's a realistically proportioned 25-week preterm infant that can help health care professionals learn proper care and resuscitation techniques for preterm infants. In addition, we also can schedule training with our pregnant manikin to simulate difficult deliveries. As the largest Level IV NICU in the region, unparalleled maternal and newborn care is a passion of ours.

Our Tours

Though our first tours around the region will be geared towards clinicians, we'll be giving tours and showing off the various bells and whistles of this portable simulation lab, which includes on-board WiFi, classroom video cameras, debriefing TVs and broadcasting capabilities, among other elements. The lab is equipped with two classroom settings to best meet the learning needs of participants. There is a realistic ambulance classroom and a hospital classroom that can be used as an ER room or an inpatient pediatrics room. However, we'll soon be able to teach basic training courses like CPR and training for babysitters to you, our community. 

We hope that your family will never have to experience a medical emergency. If you do, we are here for you and your loved ones. We're investing in the skills and training of our clinicians and community to respond whenever a child is in need.

Simulation is a valuable education tool for both medical professionals and the public. Our new Mobile Training Center will allow clinicians to work with these high-tech manikins, facilitating training and improve the outcomes of patients, from preemies to adolescents.
