Who is Biomed Simulation?
Our Mission is to Bring Life to Simulation
Biomed Simulation’s (BMS) mission is improving clinician performance through patient-free simulation.
Standard of Care Improvement through training and increased proficiency of Perfusionists working in acute clinical care and Operating Room environments represents a significant decrease in cost and liability risk reduction for Health Services Providers.
BMS’s simulation platform addresses these key needs for providers. Our initial products include simulation modules for the operation of the Heart Lung Machine – Cardiopulmonary Bypass (CPB) and the Extra Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) machine used in long-term cardiopulmonary support.
BMS’ platform roadmap includes other simulators, data analytics interfaces and guideline-based test patient scenarios to continually improve clinician performance and address Healthcare providers concerns.
What We Do and How are we unique?
Our family of Califia products support simulation experiences involving ECMO/ECLS and Cardiopulmonary Bypass. Our products are software heavy and are based on patient physiology. This means that once the operator programs the patient physiology or pathophysiology into the Califia Simulator the learner’s actions immediately and without operator intervention determines how the patient’s lab values and hemodynamics. Operate the simulation by attaching your extracorporeal circuit to the patient module or use an internal virtual ECMO or cardiopulmonary bypass circuit.
Califia is certified by the ABCP to provide the practicing perfusionist with high-fidelity CPB/ECMO simulations.
Our Vision is that clinicians will train in an environment that is indistinguishable from real-life
Biomed Simulation was founded to establish a new standard for training perfusionists and critical care specialists. As we interact with satisified users we become aware of greater challenges in the training of these specialists. We will continue to move forward in providing the most advanced tools for training and evaluating performance of these clinicians, thus establish us as the leader in simulation training.
We believe we will be recognized as the leader in perfusion and critical care training leading to the best possible standards of care and patient outcomes.
Richard Tallman, JR. PH.D.
Jorge has been with Biomed Simulation since 2013. As a lead engineer, his focus is on engineering new technologies. More often than not, it involves a lot of software development; also working as a key member of a team that includes hardware designers and contract manufacturers towards introducing new simulation hardware or improving existing products. He earned a bachelor’s degree in EE from University of Manitoba and has served in systems engineering as well as technical sales and mid-level management positions.
