About this work


‘Harvey’, a Cardiology Patient Simulator (CPS), is a life-size manikin created as a teaching aid for medical students and staff. Harvey is used to test physical examination and diagnosis skills without the need for a real patient. He can mimic a range of real medical conditions so students can study and practice under realistic conditions. Harvey was developed by the University of Miami, School of Medicine. It exhibited the first prototype at the American Heart Association Sessions in 1968. Patient simulators have since become increasingly sophisticated. They range from basic manikins to full-size computerised examples such as Harvey who simulates up to 27 heart conditions. maker: University of Miami Place made: United States
