Harvey is the cardiopulmonary Patient Simulator. It is a proven system to teach bedside skills that transfer to real patients. This full-manikin realistically simulates nearly any cardiac disease at the touch of a button by varying blood pressure, pulses, heart sounds and murmurs.

The simulator provides a comprehensive cardiology curriculum by realistically simulating 30 conditions. It is structured to begin with common, less complex conditions and progress to more rare and complex diseases. Findings include blood pressure, venous, arterial and precordial impulses, ascultation in multiple areas that varies with respiration when appropriate and breath sounds.

"Harvey" may be used in any environment in which a patient may be examined. Small groups with stethophones may learn without an instructor by using the self-assessment slide programs. Larger groups may learn in a lecture hall by using stethophones for auscultation and video cameras and monitors or a projector for observing other physical findings.

"Harvey" is used to train medical students, residents, fellows, primary care physicians, physician assistants, nurses and para-professionals. Among students, it may be used effectively during each and every year of school, starting with the Introductory or Normal program for a beginning student. This is consistent with the goal of wedding basic sciences and clinical exposure throughout a student's education. In addition, skills can only be learned and maintained with repetitive practice.

Multiple studies have shown that the cardiovascular examination is a sensitive, highly specific and cost-effective skill. At the same time, national studies of Internal Medicine and Family Practice trainees have clearly demonstrated that cardiovascular bedside skills are sorely lacking. The solution suggested in these studies is repetitive practice through simulation technology and testing outcomes.
