Eryka Emilien Tchuosi, NTHS senior interning with the Johns Hopkins Simulation Center, will be published in a medical and scientific journal after assisting in research to perfect a mannequin with active bleeding tonsils. 

The mannequin is a hybrid task trainer which helped dozens of airway managers including but not limited to, anesthesiologists, paramedics, and ENT experts. 

“Eryka has assisted in several pieces of the building phase,” said Adam Dodson, Operations Manager at The Johns Hopkins Medicine Simulation Center in Baltimore. “I am looking to publish this as a technical abstract in the Journal of International Simulation in Healthcare Education.” 

The publication would be presented as a poster presentation next January in California.  “Teaching others what we have done and how we have done it will benefit many patients,” commented Dodson. 

The mannequin has already been used to train 30 advanced airway managers in a multi-disciplinary difficult airway course.  “It was a huge success,” said Dodson. 

This project was a great learning experience for Tchuosi. “I got to learn how artists would do molds, what was needed, and what shades of colors would make the scabs/ molds look like the mannequin’s skin,” she said. 

Tchuosi is a student in New Town’s Project Lead the Way Biomedical program. 

The Johns Hopkins Medicine Simulation Center is a fully accredited state-of-the-art medical training facility.  The main goal of the Simulation Center is to improve safety within patient care.
