(www.redllamainc.com) announced today that the SimPraxis® surgical simulation platform applications now available on iOS include the SimPraxis Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy and SimPraxis Laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication procedures. These Apps are authored by University of Washington Surgeons Mika Sinanan, MD (Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy), Carlos Pellegrini, MD and Roger Tatum, MD (Laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication). 

Interactive Surgical Decision-Making

These Trainers, and the SimPraxis Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy Trainer, can be purchased from the iTunes App Store on your computer or from the App Store on your iPad and at  http://appstore.com/redllamainc on your web browser.

SimPraxis training modules provide a level of detailed surgical training unmatched outside of the operating room experience using high-fidelity video in highly interactive simulations, didactics, and anatomy quizzes. SimPraxis is an interactive simulation software platform, which offers an easy, cost-saving, engaging and game-like way to deliver surgical training to those who need it, when and where they need it.

"We are excited to be able to offer General Surgeons and General Surgery Residents the flexibility of using the SimPraxis Trainers on both the Windows and iOS platforms. The ease of downloading and the video quality on the iPad, iPad Air and iPad Mini continues to exceed our expectations," said David Robison, MLIS, Red Llama VP of Product Management.

The learning objectives of the SimPraxis Trainers are: to orient the user to the roles of the surgical team; learn the relevant anatomy; learn the specific steps of the procedure; understand the required port placements; become familiar with the necessary instruments; and master the key risks of the laparoscopic hysterectomy. Users also have the opportunity to review the potential errors, injuries and complications associated with each step.

All actions and decisions made in each Trainer are captured for complete formative tracking and summative scoring in order to provide meaningful and accurate assessment.
