SAM – the Student Auscultation Manikin 3rd Generation - is an innovation in teaching and learning heart, lung, and bowel sounds. SAM’s brand new computer software interface includes Case Videos, a Real Sound Library, Echo Cardiogram Videos, and ECG Waveform for heart sounds.
Case Videos contain patient and clinical interactions for various conditions. Users can watch a video and practice listening to the SAM for a life like simulation. Users can also create and save their own case videos.
The Real Sound Library contains sounds recorded from live patients. Echo Cardiogram videos associated with various heart conditions are recorded from live patients. An ECG waveform is displayed with various heart sounds to help identify S1.
Containing the largest high quality sound library available, SAM is a portable and easy to use manikin. While SAM is used in many simulation centers, it is also easily moved into a classroom or auditorium for group instruction.
SAM’s computer software interface is easily projected into any smart classroom. With programmable and password protected lectures, many institutions find value in having numerous instructors utilize SAM. If you already own a Cardionics SAMII, you can easily upgrade your existing software with the new exciting features. You can upgrade each new feature separately or as a bundle.
