KindHeart offers a realistic and reproducible human cardiac surgery experience for deliberate practice of CABG, AVR, and Adverse Events. The Cardiac Surgery Simulator (CSS) is used with the Cardiac Tissue Cassette to enable simulation of cardiac surgery. The cassette is mounted in a KindHeart Cardiac Patient which simulates a human patient from neck to mid-thigh in a recumbent position. The KindHeart Cardiac Surgery Simulator Base Unit (CSS) is the control unit for the Cardiac Surgery Simulation System (CSS, KindHeart Cardiac Patient, KindHeart Cardiac Tissue Cassette).
The Thoracic Surgery Simulator (TSS) is used with the KindHeart Thoracic Patient and KindHeart Thoracic Tissue Cassette to enable simulation of thoracic surgery on a human patient. The cassette is inserted into a KindHeart Thoracic Patient which simulates a human patient from shoulder to hip in a left lateral position. Surgery can be performed using open, laparoscopic or robotic techniques.
