Red Llama Partners with Medical Simulation International on Global Health Project. For the past few years, Red Llama has been privileged to work on a global health project with Minneapolis-based Medical Simulation International on a project to create a SimPraxis®-based Fistula Repair Trainer. Millions of women in the developing world suffer from obstetric fistula due to obstructed deliveries. Working with surgeons around the world, we are developing a Trainer to improve training of additional surgeons and to prolong their successful practice of fistula repair. Dakar ORIn 2011 we traveled to Dakar Senegal to work with Dr. Serigne Maguey Gueye and capture video of his repair technique. In January 2013 to Ngaramtoni, Tanzania to capture video of Dr. Andrew Browning's work. Dr. Browning is the contributing author to Dr. Brian Hancock's Practical Obstetric Fistula Repair. Finally, in October 2013, we traveled to Addis Ababa to work again with Dr. Browning and Dr. Catherine Hamlin at the Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital. This project is part of the International Federation of Obstetrics and Gynecology's (FIGO) work to improve fistula care. An article about this project appeared in their March 2012 Newsletter and is reprinted here (pdf) and Minneapolis TV station KSTP reported on the project.

Red Llama Releases Two New SimPraxis® Trainers: the SimPraxis Laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication Trainer and the SimPraxis Laparoscopic Hysterectomy Trainer May 21, 2012, Seattle, WA. Red Llama, Inc. announced today that it is releasing version 1.0 of its SimPraxis® Laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication Trainer and SimPraxis Laparoscopic Hysterectomy Trainer. The learning objectives of these SimPraxis Trainers are: to orient the user to the roles of the surgeon and assistant; 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 these two laparoscopic procedures. 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. These self-paced modules provide a level of detailed surgical training unmatched outside of the operating room experience through the use of high-fidelity video in highly interactive simulations, which run on a personal computer.
