The training solution for bedside cardiac assessment skills

For nearly 40 years, Harvey has been a proven simulation system to teach bedside cardiac assessment skills that transfer to real patients.

Harvey realistically simulates nearly any cardiac disease at the touch of a button by varying blood pressure, pulses, heart sounds, mumurs and breath sounds.

Harvey is the longest continuous university-based simulation project in medical education.

Designed for any Learning Environment

Harvey is portable and may be used in any environment in which a patient may be examined. Small groups with stethophones may learn without an instructor by using the slide programs or the UMedic system. If the area is only for Harvey, it should be about the size of a patient’s small hospital room, so that space is available for "Bedside Rounds."

Harvey may also be used in Clinical Skills or Simulation Training Centres or SP training areas. Larger groups may learn in a lecture hall by using stethophones for auscultation and video projection for observing other physical findings.

Most importantly, the main location should be convenient for both students and the person-in-charge. 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.
