Akito Tanaka, a 63-year-old male, is brought into the emergency department with symptoms consistent with COPD exacerbation. He has a former smoking history, COPD on home O2, and is on anticoagulation for atrial fibrillation.
This multiplayer VR session is designed to enable learners to recognize massive hemoptysis as an airway emergency and make arrangements for an effective airway securement plan and adjunct management.
- Recognize decompensation of patient and need for definitive airway
- Recognize life threatening bleeding and reverse anticoagulation
- Approach appropriate specialists for continued management of massive hemoptysis

Core Skills Training
COPD with Massive Hemoptysis
As part of this open scenario, learners will initiate treatment with traditional therapies for COPD exacerbation and positive pressure ventilation. Though the patient responds well to the initial treatment, he soon develops a coughing fit and hemoptysis with compromised airway. Learners will then be required to secure the airway, reverse anticoagulation, and manage massive hemoptysis. A call will have to be placed to an ICU doctor for further consultation.
All necessary affordances are made available to learners to assist them in performing their tasks with efficiency and effectiveness.
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
