In partnership with the SSA (French Armed Forces Health Service), Medusims has developed a numerical medical simulator for the initial treatment and care of war wounded – Combat Rescue Level 1 (SC1) – by soldiers out in the field. Description You are a soldier. Within a platoon, you are conducting a patrol on the outskirts […]
In 2013, Medusims published its first numerical medical simulator concerning the treatment and care of patients presenting with Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS). Within 4 years, this simulator was being used very widely in post-university training sessions organised by a laboratory in France and abroad: Belgium, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, South Korea, Russia, the Middle East and Africa.
In his office, a man experiences very strong chest pain and calls the emergency services.
In this pre-hospital scene, you are an emergency doctor who must make a diagnosis, stabilise the patient, and orient him within the healthcare system.
At the hospital, you are a surgical cardiologist and ensure the monitoring of treatment and care.
The simulator includes 2 clinical cases – 1 STEMI case (myocardial infarction with elevation of the ST segment), and 1 NSTEMI case (myocardial infarction without elevation of the ST segment).

A scientific study was conducted to assess the educational effectiveness of this numerical simulator compared to a high-fidelity simulator. The results, presented at the 2014 SFAR (French Anaesthetists’ Association) Conference, suggest that both tools offer comparative positive teaching benefits.
