"The Orpheus has made all the difference in the world as far as preparing me for real cases in the OR. Developing skills and increasing a student's confidence is a major key in succeeding in clinical rotations. I can't imagine a program without it!"
- Nancy Sponable, CVP Class of 2011
"Every effort is made to enhance the realistic operating room experience, from donning masks to enter the room to the beeping of the physiologic monitors! The approach of total immersion provides a very serious, therefore useful experience for the practicing perfusionist as well as perfusion students."
- William Riley CCP, Boston
"The staff at SUNY Syracuse have done a tremendous job at providing a realistic O.R. experience for perfusion simulation; it feels like you are in a realisitc operating room environment. Perfusion simulation is an outstanding tool to train perfusion students before they do live cases. There is nothing more valuable than being able to allow people to make mistakes and troubleshoot them so they better understand how those mistakes can affect CBP and/or the patient; this can only be done by simulation, not in a live O.R. environment."
