Services Provided at the Center for Pediatric Resuscitation
Our team visits outside facilities, assesses their current resuscitation systems and preparedness to respond to potential cardiac arrest emergencies, and analyzes their needs and liabilities. Working with each site we visit, we then develop contextualized curricula and training programs appropriate to each site to improve performance and patient outcomes.
Mobile simulation stations
Simulation-based training with medical manikins has been used for decades to enhance provider performance during intense resuscitations. Using mobile simulation stations, simulation events are designed to replicate these stressful events and evaluate cognitive, technical and behavioral performance of providers and their impact on patient care and outcomes.
Peak Performance Laboratory
Using high-tech tools such as eye-tracking software, biometric wearables such as “fit-bits” and “hexoskin,” physiological measures of stress, and headbands outfitted with functional Near Infrared Spectroscopy brain oxygen saturation and blood flow analysis, our team can track and evaluate healthcare provider cognitive load, stress, fatigue, resilience and performance during simulated and real resuscitation events. This information can help us identify methods to modify teamwork to optimize patient care and outcomes. Learn more.
We measure processes and outcomes associated with resuscitation, benchmark performance against best practices and data from comparable systems, and provide feedback to providers and teams.
Our tele-support command center enables us to provide real-time best-practice support, consultation, training, credentialing and feedback.
We offer innovative training interventions to optimize team performance during a resuscitation, including point-of-care CPR training, multidisciplinary simulation and debriefing. We provide educational programs designed to assist frontline providers to recognize and initially treat and manage patients who are at high risk of cardiac arrest and for low-volume but high-risk events. These educational endeavors support early intervention and improve team competency when a patient’s condition has deteriorated.
