Tania is 7-months old. Her older sibling developed a cold four days prior and the next day Tania had a running nose and a cough. She was doing fine until yesterday when she did not eat or drink much. This morning, she had some noisy breathing, and her chest looked funny while she was breathing. When the condition persisted for a couple of hours, they were directed to the emergency department.
Tania has not urinated today. Her last bowel movement was yesterday evening, and it was normal. She is otherwise healthy and fully up to date with her vaccines.
This multiplayer, open-scenario VR simulation is designed to help healthcare practitioners identify respiratory distress in an infant and respond to it. The post-session debriefing serves as a self-analysis, helping learners identify errors and rectify them.
- Identify respiratory distress in an infant.
- Review the diagnosis of bronchiolitis.
- Initiate supportive care with supplemental oxygen and fluids.
- Recognize treatment failure and intubate an infant.

Bronchiolitis and Respiratory Failure
In this multiplayer open scenario VR simulation, learners are expected to react to a case of bronchiolitis in an infant. They will identify the respiratory distress and review the diagnosis of bronchiolitis. Learners will start with oxygen, achieve IV access and give fluid bolus. With a dropping oxygen saturation level, learners will have to perform an endotracheal intubation and call PICU at the pediatric referral center. Affordances are made available to perform the necessary steps in the scenario. The team can discuss the case and share knowledge and experiences to treat the patient.
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
