PacerMan® System

Practice The Entire Transvenous Cardiac Pacing Procedure

PacerMan® is the first and only high-fidelity simulator for immersive transvenous pacing training—from needle insertion to electrical capture using all the clinical equipment. With PacerMan, clinicians can practice the entire procedure—including identifying intrinsic bradycardias, assessing intracardiac waveforms and manipulating output and rate with a pacing generator.

Simulab's patented SimuSensor® technology powers PacerMan, replicating a true clinical workflow by allowing the learner to use their own pacing generator to trigger patient responses on a simulated patient monitor. PacerMan can be set on Instructor Mode, with specifically chosen scenario parameters or randomized Student Mode. Both settings include options for multiple outcomes and offer hands-on learning anytime, anywhere.

Physician Reviews

“PacerMan is an outstanding resource for teaching transvenous pacer placement. There’s nothing else like it. We have now taught TVPacer placement to 150 physicians and have found it extremely valuable!”
Jeffrey Tabas, MD, Professor of Clinical Emergency Medicine, UCSF School of Medicine

“PacerMan is great for a variety of learners, from residents to seasoned attending physicians.  It really does a great job of reminding you how complex transvenous pacemaker insertion can be with all of its particular steps – all while giving you the opportunity to keep on practicing (with real time cardiac monitor changes) until you get it consistently right!”
Michael Yashar, MD, Attending Physician, Department of Emergency Medicine, Cedar Sinai Medical Center Co-Course Director

“The PacerMan System can help you do a procedure that is not common in the ER, but it can save a life.  The design of the PacerMan can help you to train and to teach an easy procedure blindly, as well as any complications that may occur.”
Jose A. Rubero, MD, Associate Program Director, Emergency Medical Residency Program, Osceola Regional Medical Center University of Central Florida

It's a fair enough question, and one we often get asked!

some of our top reasons for using a manikin in your training sessions:
xtricating a casualty from a dangerous situation such as from within a confined space requires specialist technical rescue skills in order to prevent further problems.
We know good CPR gives higher survival rates, and the idea about scoring is to reflect how good the performance really is for the patient.
This manikin has been designed in consultation with the Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS) and is ideal for teaching a range of lifeguard skills and techniques.
