Special Accomplishments

2011 Dr. Lampotang is part of the UF team that conceived the patented technology behind the Human Patient Simulator.  The team’s simulation research shifted to what has become transparent reality simulation on the web in the form of the Virtual Anesthesia Machine (VAM) simulation. The simulation portfolio has become diversified to include airway devices, perioperative hemostasis, CVVH/dialysis, pharmacokinetics, and physics.
