ABOUT US

Our Philosophy:

We believe life is sacred. Clinicians spend 95% of their day in non-code activities. Why are we so focused on training people to run codes with mannequins, when code mortality under optimal circumstances is about 77%.

 

"High Fidelity" simulation to us involves a real person portraying an illness with realistic normal and abnormal sounds, not a mannequin.

 

We believe that the next frontier in mortality reduction will come by training people to recognize crucial findings and act early to PREVENT the next code.

 

We know resources are not plentiful which is why we have designed our tools to be affordable even for the smallest programs. Those who use mannequins will appreciate the ability to put any MP3 file, anywhere on the mannequin.

 

It is a seemless integration of all the human factors with portrayal of other data which will train our students to communicate well, think critically and recognize situations, and take action quickly...thereby saving lives.

CREATED BY PHYSICIANS, FOR CLINICIANS:

After many years of frustration, resulting from the inability to seamlessly integrate high quality sounds into standardized patient and mannequin scenarios, Dr. Lecat invented the Ventriloscope. The old simulation methods fractured the reality of the scenario for the student, and even worse eliminated the teaching and testing of the crucial "seeking" and "noticing" skills. It is the integration of unique clues, generated by these skills which allows a clinician to create crucial hypotheses.

 

"Failure to diagnose" is the number one reason for malpractice suits in the US. Without adequate hypotheses, our miraculous technologies are often not applied. Consequently many patients are misdiagnosed.

 

Dr. Lecat created the first Ventriloscope in 2005. After several years of research and development, it was improved and multiple related patents were published.

 

In 2015, the hardwired version of the Ventriloscope, VENTRILOPHONE was created.

 

The Ventriloscope and the Ventrilophone are the only devices to realistically portray abnormal heart, lung, bowel, vascular, percussion, doppler sounds and others ANYWHERE on a live patient or mannequin.

The Ventriloscope and the Ventrilophone are the only devices to realistically portray abnormal heart, lung, bowel, vascular, percussion, doppler sounds and others ANYWHERE on a live patient or mannequin.

 

They are intentionally kept simple to use, reliable and portable for purposes of classroom teaching. Any MP3 sound of yours can be used on our device!

 

Our vision is to help in the training of medical professionals and empower them to listen to patients and integrate the history with physical findings, and improve diagnosis thus preventing codes and saving lives.
