Moulage
 Moulage
– The artistic technique of incorporating realistic
cues, such as wounds, perspiration, blood, or
therapeutic devices, to increase the “psychological
fidelity” of a simulation.

Considerations
 Alignment with objectives
 Participant considerations
– Level of experience
– Environment
– Inter-professional education
 Subject
– Human
– Mannequin
 Knowledge
– Physiology of the situation
– Mechanism of injury

Food Products?
 Avoid
– Mold Growth
Clinical education that measurably improves care.
Food products?
 Possible Exceptions:
– No direct contact with mannequin
 Edema: Cream of wheat/oatmeal in secured bags
covered with nylons
 Coffee grounds added to a fluid presented in a basin
– Cornstarch for thickness
– Rice crispies/broken chips in a baggie for crepitus
– Plain gelatin with red food coloring for clots
Clinical education that measurably improves care.
Human Subjects
 Benefits
– Blending make-up for bruises is easier
– Adhesives stick better
– Individual can assist with device or moulage
– Individual can assist with clean up
– Realistic facial expressions and movement
Clinical education that measurably improves care.
Human Subjects
 Limitations:
– Need breaks
– May have allergies to moulage/device materials
– Inability to perform all “critical actions” when
simulating a medical emergencies (ie. Intubate)
– Limitations to the application of devices (ie. Foley)
– Limitations related to exposure
Clinical education that measurably improves care.
Mannequin Subjects
 Benefits
– More realistic device application (ie. Intubation)
– Easy exposure
– Ability to alter physiological findings
– No allergic concerns
– No timing issues related to breaks
Clinical education that measurably improves care.
Mannequin Subject
 Limitations:
– Lack of movement & facial expressions
– Devices do not fit realistically
– Surface staining
– Realistic blending of make-up is challenging
– Variances' to the adhesive qualities of materials

THE LIST IS ENDLESS!!!
Show me the money!!!



Use expired materials (ie. Medications, defib pads)
Repackage materials (ie. Cath kits, central line kits)
Predetermined disposal site
Make friends with ancillary departments (ie.
Pharmacy, Biomed, Materials)

Sample Recipe
 Meconium
– Green finger paint
– Yellow finger paint
– Blue dish detergent
Mix finger paints, adding until desired color. Add
dish detergent for color and consistency.

Sample Recipe
 Liquid C-diff Stool
–
–
–
–
–
–
½ cup Corn starch
2 tsp Shaving cream
Black finger paint
Green finger paint
Red finger paint
2 drops green food
coloring
– 1 drop red food coloring
– Blue dish detergent
Clinical education that measurably improves care.
Pour distilled water into a
bowl for the approximate
amount of stool, add
green and red finger
paints to make a brown
color, add a tiny amount
of black finger paint and
food coloring. Mix corn
starch, shaving cream,
and blue dish detergent
for realistic consistency.
Sample Recipe
 Blood Clots
– 1 box Gelatin
– Food coloring
– Water
Clinical education that measurably improves care.
 Mix according to box
directions but use half
as the amount of water.
Add food color until
desired color obtained.
Pour into a cake pan
(9x13). Place in
refrigerator overnight to
settle.
Assignment
 Bruise
– New
– Older
 Oozing blood
 Make the moulage needed for your simulation
