Successful completion of this chest pain emergency care scenario will help learners refine their emergency care skills and prepare for EMS association courses, and state and national EMS provider exams.
Mark Willey is a 54-year-old male car mechanic with a history of hypertension and coronary artery disease. He began having chest pains about 6 hours ago while working in his garage. Your task is to attend to the patient at his home and provide initial care after conducting a proper assessment. You will then prepare to transport him to the hospital.
This multiplayer VR patient assessment simulation focuses on prehospital assessment and management of a patient with chest pain. It is designed to help EMS professionals practice assessment and management skills in a safe and controlled virtual setup with a virtual patient.
Effectively communicate with patients experiencing chest pain.
Develop the skills to initiate appropriate and timely management for patients presenting with chest pain
Accurately assess and diagnose the underlying causes of chest pain in a patient by integrating history-taking, physical examination, and appropriate diagnostic tests

Core Skills Training
As part of this open scenario, the learner will begin by conducting a detailed assessment of the patient. This will include determining the patient’s condition, assessing vitals, and verifying patient’s responsiveness. The learner will further check the patient’s pupils and pulse. The patient will be ready for transport to the ambulance when the initial treatment is complete.
All affordances are provided within the environment to provide a realistic and immersive learning experience.
End-of-task debriefing to assess one’s performance, evaluate actions, and get the most out of the training. Examples of topics being touched upon in the debriefing include the following:
- Thorough patient assessment
- Completion of necessary steps
- Correct medication administration to patient
- Sequential completion of task
- Execution of time-sensitive tasks
