Oesophagel Atresia Repair – 30 April 2021
30 April 2021
We ran the simulation training session on Oesophageal atresia repair using the Imperial College model in the Technical Skills Lab
We are grateful for Miss Sofia Chacon who is a Simulation Fellow/Paediatric surgeon from Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, who agreed to come and help set up the model. The model was made from a 3d printer to simulate the baby’s rib cage and silicon was wrapped around to simulate the skin.
Dental CPD with Brian Miller – 15th & 16th July 2021
In July we welcomed Professor Brian Miller to NNUH for two days of Dental CPD. Brian ran two courses on Direct and Indirect Restorations and Tooth Wear Management.
Direct and Indirect Restorations focussed on restoring function and aesthetics with a range of contemporary techinques such as the use of minimally invasive crowns and the vertiprep method. Tooth Wear Management covered the management of tooth wear including dealing with aesthetics and occlusal changes.
We are very grateful for their expertise.
Hands on Endodontics – 23rd July 2021
In July we also welcomed Shashi Mishra who ran a Hands on Endodontics course.
Delegates explored the key principles in endodontic assessment and diagnosis using biological approaches to chemo-mechanical preparation and obturation of the root canal system. Delegates used the Technical Skills Lab phantom heads and explored various instrumentation techniques.
We are very grateful for Shashi’s expertise and look forward to his next course.
Paediatric Simulation Day – 23rd July 2021
These have historically been run in Ipswich but as this deanery is so large, they wanted to expand their teaching into Norfolk to make them more accessible.
We welcomed 10 delegates and 6 faculties who were involved in the course, which consisted of 6 scenarios throughout the day involving our brand new paediatric manikin (paediatric Hal). Please see further information on Paediatric Hal in our equipment spotlight.
Ophthalmology Course – 12th August 2021
As part of the induction programme for Ophthalmology Regional Trainees (Health Education East of England), a 4 day course was held at the NNUH in August. a new role within the Technical Skills Department. Contact details below.
On the last day of this course practical sessions were held in the Technical Skills Lab, which included Microscope Corneal Suturing, a look at the new Eyesi simulator and also Oculoplastic simulation training using Pigs eyes which were kindly donated to us from Archers butchers in Norwich.

Meet Paediatric HAL, the world’s most advanced paediatric patient simulator and the first capable of simulating lifelike emotions through dynamic facial expressions, movement, and speech.
HAL is designed to help providers of all levels develop the specialized skills needed to effectively communicate, diagnose, and treat young patients in nearly all clinical areas.
Key features include:
- Interactive eyes and active facial expressions
- Dynamic lung compliance with true ventilator support
- Real patient monitor support: SpO2, EKG, capnography, NIBP, live pacing, and defibrillation
- Emergency intervention: surgical airway, needle decompression, and chest tube
- Wireless and tetherless
