The mission of the Simulation lab is to support LSU Health Shreveport School of Medicine's educational mission through the use of real-time interactive simulation systems. The lab works closely with departments, course directors, individual faculty and other health care organizations to develop education experiences which utilize simulation. A total of three simulation suites are available for use. Each suite contains state-of-the-art equipment including sophisticated computers and life-like mannequins. The specialized mannequins are anatomically accurate and demonstrate various clinical signs and scenarios, such as hemorrhage, respiratory and cardiac arrest. The computers are capable of a wide array of clinical scenarios and additional equipment is available to further enhance clinical training and skill development.
