Harvey® System

This full-size manikin realistically simulates nearly any cardiac disease at the touch of a button by varying blood pressure, pulses, heart sounds, murmurs and breath sounds. Harvey is the longest continuous university-based simulation project in medical education, and no other simulator presents cardiac bedside findings at the level of detail and fidelity found in Harvey.

    Portable, for stationary or in situ training
  • 50 patient scenarios
  • Digitally driven pulses and impulses in 14 areas
  • 9 cardiac auscultatory areas
  • 6 pulmonary auscultatory areas
  • Ability to modify the amplitude & intensity of all findings
  • Ability to "talk," allowing history-taking
  • Upgradable software system
  • Cost effective training

Harvey Curriculum

Harvey provides a comprehensive cardiology curriculum by realistically simulating 50 patient scenarios. It is structured to begin with common, less complex conditions and progress to more rare and complex diseases. Some patient scenarios are available in both 60 & 90 bpm with corresponding respiratory rate changes of 12 & 15 rpm, respectively.

Learning Environment

Harvey is portable and may be used in any environment in which a patient may be examined. Using stethophones, small groups may learn without an instructor by using the slide programs or the UMedic system. Harvey may also be used in clinical skills or simulation training centers or SP training areas. Larger groups by using stethophones for auscultation, and video projection for observing other physical findings. Most important, Hrvey's location should be convenient for students, faculty and staff. Even though Harvey functions as a self-learning device, the nearby presence and availability of knowledgeable faculty and staff will further ensure a successful program.

world wide
reach

Harvey teaches many thousands of learners annually at over 600 institutions worldwide. The American College of Cardiology Task Force on Teaching has recommended Harvey for training, the British Heart Foundation has placed the simulator at nearly all of the medical schools in the U.K., and the American Board of Internal Medicine uses videos of Harvey its computer-based skills recertification examination. The Royal College of Canada has used Harvey for its high-stakes internal medicine certification examination.
