The availability of passive and low-fidelity tools for a simulation lab is extensive and varied. Factors which influence selection include course frequency, course size (number of manikins needed), durability, cost, portability, and level of functionality. Rotating learners through several stations to practice on different manikins and devices helps to stretch the learning and practice of effective interventions. It is important to select the correct tool for the learning objective. The use of tablet-based devices for simulation has undergone a rapid increase in recent years. The inherent safety of these devices along with flexibility and adaptability make them ideal for teaching purposes. Simulation of cardiopulmonary bypass is challenging and Orpheus is a dedicated simulation solution.
