  Simulation center for the subject of neurosurgery is a new model of education, implementing innovative forms of learning in medical education, and is a target marker designed to develop practical skills and abilities through IV generation virtual reality glasses, microscope, autopsy materials, mannequins for trepanation and other practices.

  Goals of the simulation center:

  Realization of professional skills in students in the subject of neurosurgery

  Objectives of simulation center:

  • Formation of professional skills and increasing the psychological readiness of students to work with patients turned to neurosurgery;
  • Evaluation of the correlation of theoretical and practical knowledge of students in the subject of neurosurgery;
  • Evaluation of the student's tactics used in unforeseen situations in neurosurgical complications;
  • Formation of skills to work in a team of neurosurgeons.

  Equipment needed:

  • Oculus Quest 2 virtual reality goggles 128 GB VR headset.
  • Training skull fixator for neurosurgery.
  • Tomlov 7 LSD training microscope.
  • Tumor tissue samples for autopsy.
  • Neurosurgical instruments.
  • Cadaver dissection table.
  • Negotoscope.
  • Trainer for practicing spinal interventions.
  • Mobile autopsy table for small animals.
  • Cranial specimen for trepanation.
  • BJ1104 Cranial drill (System 1000).

  The existence of a simulation room in the subject of neurosurgery will help build professional skills and help develop student readiness to work with patients.

  • Students will learn the technique of skull trepanation with an electric skull trepanner and will be able to perform it independently.
  • Using virtual reality goggles, any procedure that can be performed on a patient can be performed as if it were in real life.
  • With VR goggles, you can learn the anatomy of the brain, spinal cord, and other organs as if you were seeing it in real life.
  • Students learn how to determine the consistency and type of tumors from brain tumor material.
  • Students will be able to perform dissection of brain tumors using materials.
  • Reproduce the proper technique for primary surgical treatment of a soft head wound on a simulator;
  • Perform first aid and medical treatment for cervical spine and spinal cord injuries.
  • Discuss and demonstrate the bones, muscles of the skull and innervation of facial muscles.
  • Talk about cranial surgery by demonstrating the instruments of surgery.
  • Examine the types of neurosurgical instruments and how they are used.
  • Learning how to fix the head with a neurosurgical head fixator and how to determine the position of the head during surgery in a patient.
  • By practicing with a training microscope, students will acquire the skills to perform microneurosurgical surgeries.
  • With the help of a nongotoscope, students learn to interpret grams in MRI, MSCT and other neuroradiologic methods of investigation.

  During the practical training in the simulation room the teacher will be able to assess the ratio of theoretical and practical knowledge of students in the subject. In the simulation room, the student will be able to assess the practical situation and independently decide the tactics of care for neurosurgical patients. Thanks to the simulator, we will be able to teach students to work as a team in emergency situations in neurosurgery.
