About The Course:

This is a case of a middle-aged patient who is feeling dizzy and weak.  The team is expected to perform an initial assessment using SAMPLE and OPQRST and obtain an ECG. Upon recognizing a heart block, they should ensure IV access, prepare, and perform pacing before calling for cardiology. 

Both single-player and multiplayer modes are available for this course. The multiplayer mode facilitates users to collaborate as a team, perform procedures with fellow participants, communicate over voice chat in real-time and share knowledge and experiences. 

The open scenario allows learners to perform independently without guidance and practice their knowledge and skill. A debriefing is provided to help them assess their performance.

Learning Objective:
  • Use a focused history to elicit a patient history
  • Identify the rhythm displayed on the monitor
  • Perform cardiac pacing
  • Assess patient using SAMPLE and OPQRST methods 
  • Initiate appropriate ACLS management

Core Skills Training

Bradycardia

Bradycardia, a slow heart rate, can be a life-threatening condition which requires prompt intervention from healthcare providers. As part of the Emergency Care Curriculum, this simulation focuses on providing both pharmacologic and electrical conversion of the arrhythmia. In this scenario participants will interview, assess, and treat a virtual patient.

Debriefing

End-of-task debriefing to assess one’s performance, evaluate actions, and get the most out of the session. The debriefing includes crucial points related to the scenario.

  • Thorough patient assessment
  • Completion of necessary steps
  • Correct medication administration to patient
  • Sequential completion of task
  • Execution of time-sensitive tasks
