About The Course:

In this scenario, the learner is called to the emergency department to assess a 54-year old male suffering a chest pain. The learner must perform an EKG and recognize an ST elevation myocardial infarction. They must then administer appropriate medication and activate the interventional cardiology team. 

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 helps learners perform independently without guidance and test their knowledge and skill. A debriefing is provided to help learners assess their performance.

Learning Objective:
  • Interpret focused history to elicit a patient history
  • Read and identify rhythm displayed on the monitor
  • Assess patient using SAMPLE and OPQRST methods
  • Administer correct interventions based on the patient condition
  • Perform close-to-real conversation with virtual patient based on verbal communication enabled by natural language processing

Core Skills Training

ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction

When blood flow to the heart muscles is blocked one or more areas of the heart may not be able to receive adequate blood supply. This leads to a myocardial infarction or, in simpler terms, a heart attack. This is a life threatening condition calling for prompt and immediate action on the part of healthcare professionals. Promptly recognizing and treating a myocardial infarction is a skill all healthcare providers need to be competent in. This scenario features an ST Segment Myocardial Infarction that requires participants to 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
