About The Course:

In this scenario, the learner walks into a room in the emergency department to find a 54-year-old male who is unresponsive. The learner must perform the initial assessment and call for help. Once the team arrives, the user will guide the team members to prepare the patient for CPR and appropriate medication. Collaboration and time management is the key to successful execution of this procedure.

In this VR simulation, both single-player and multiplayer modes are available. 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 assessment helps learners perform independently without guidance and test their knowledge and skill. A debriefing is provided to help learners assess their performance. 

Learning Objective:
  • Read and identify rhythm displayed on the monitor 
  • Administer correct interventions based on the patient condition 
  • Communicate effectively with team members 
  • Perform efficiently as a team 
  • Identify and make effective use of emergency equipment

Core Skills Training

Cardiac Arrest

Ventricular Fibrillation, Pulseless Ventricular Tachycardia, Pulseless Electrical Activity, and Asystole are lethal heart rhythms and call for prompt intervention. A timely intervention can succeed in saving lives if it is backed by an excellent team effort among healthcare givers, clearly defined roles for each team member, effective communication and an awareness of emergency equipment and their usage. This VR simulation provides all necessary affordances to complete the task. It is designed to help participants work as a team to assess and treat a virtual patient.

Training

With prompts, guidance and affordances learners are hand-held through the process to practice the procedure in a virtual environment with a virtual patient. 

  • Photorealistic virtual environment
  • Physics-based interactions
  • Detailed instructions
  • Multiplayer with real-time voice chat

Assessment

Test acquired skills to perform the procedures from start to finish without prompts. An incorrect step will take the learner back to the start to start afresh. 

  • Live scoring
  • Post-assessment debriefing
  • Adequate affordances for efficient performance
  • Time tracking to monitor activity completion
