Moulage adds enough realism for students to become completely engaged in the scenarios presented. It allows them to feel the patient or patient simulator is someone for whom they must provide appropriate care. Using very quick, basic simulations and simple makeup, the simulated three-dimensional lifelike wounds can be cleaned, sutured, bandaged, etc., for a realistic nursing experience. Nursing simulation can use simple makeup and include wounds applied to a real person’s or patient simulator’s limbs, chest, head, or any other part of the body. The simulation can be as basic or advanced as needed by also adding other elements of realism, including sweat, blood, pus, mucous, or any other “recipes” needed to create a realistic learning environment. The Life/form® Ultra Nursing Wound Simulation Kit includes everything needed to create complex scenarios to assist students with a multitude of sensory perception experiences. Included are simulated wounds, makeup, and makeup accessories all packaged in a hard carry case.
Nursing assessment is based on sensory experiences - what is felt, seen, heard and smelled. Wound simulation supports sensory perception in a nursing scenario and assists students in confirming physical signs, realism, and critical thinking. Realistic, simulated conditions and injuries test the natural feelings and reactions that would occur in actual patient situations. The instructor-created simulation scenarios assist students with making assessments, prioritizing patients, and determining correct treatments. Simulation allows students to make critical mistakes without endangering a live patient, providing them with realistic patient interaction and enabling them to gain experience and gain confidence before entering real-life clinical situations. The more realistic the simulation, the greater the learning experience. Applications of wounds, blisters, abrasions, bruises, and much more act as visual aids. (Code LF00720U)
