This activity is appropriate for health professionals who have a role in the assessment and treatment of patients with suspected COVID-19. You will perform a head-to-toe assessment of all body systems, along with ordering and interpreting labs, cultures, imaging, etc. Your goal is to successfully manage the patient’s condition.
Six 20-minute-long cases are currently available.
Free registration is required.
xlung is a web-based platform that can simulate mechanical ventilation for patients with COPD, ARDS, and more, including with or without metabolic disorders. Patient parameters can also be set directly by changing demographic data, pulmonary physiology, and muscle effort, making this an ideal platform for ICU teams to prepare for complex cases. Follow the link to investigate the demo version. The team at xlung has made the platform free of charge for front-line workers during the pandemic. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for full access to the simulator.
Among OPEN Pediatrics other simulators is a ventilator simulator:
The ventilator simulator is an immersive online mechanical ventilation training tool. This release incorporates the most recent evidence-based guidelines in pediatric and adult ventilation, as well as COVID-19 information and COVID-19 patient cases.
The virtual ventilator incorporates real-time changes in vital signs, ventilatory parameters, patient appearance, arterial blood gases, chest x-rays and more.
Cases are each 20 minutes
ECMOjo is a simulator and trainer for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). ECMOjo has been developed by the Telehealth Research Institute (TRI), John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) of the University of Hawaii.
Full Code is a serious game that features a number of free ER medical cases to explore, including one directly related to infectious disease management (Case #83). The application can be used in browser, and also has iOS and Android versions. Every case has a unique scoring rubric and every action you perform affects your final score. The case ends with a detailed written debrief.
Cases are each 20 minutes
No registration required.
Peer-reviewed simulation cases for Emergency Medicine programs available in FOAMed spirit. Cases include respiratory failure, ambulatory care, STEMI with VF arrest, out of hospital cardiac arrest, protected intubation, with more coming.
This website offers a comprehensive set of primary clinical assessment simulation resources that would be applicable to many health professions. Modules include blood pressure measurement, ECG acquisition and analysis, auscultation of heart and lung sounds, point of care ultrasound, and more. No registration required.
VIC cases are clinical reasoning exercises with feedback. Their role is to provide a bridge between theory and seeing patients in clinic (or ER), providing students with what Ericsson has called "deliberate practice" as a way of gaining clinical expertise. A case editor is available for developing custom cases, and pre-existing cases exist for anesthesia, family medicine, preoperative, nurse practitioner, obstetric medicine, pharmacy, and rheumatology.
Cases are each 20 minutes.
