Physiology: The Force Behind Healthcare Simulation – A Guide for Techs, Part 8: ABGs

The more closely healthcare simulation matches real life situations (aka fidelity), the more likely that learners will become involved in the learning experience and be less confused. In the clinical setting, healthcare practitioners review past labs or order new ones to help make decisions about appropriate patient care. Lab results should be included in healthcare [...]

Physiology: The Force Behind Healthcare Simulation – A Guide for Techs, Part 6A: Intro to Hypovolemia

The key to developing a realistic healthcare simulation experience is to understand how physiological functions change in response to various stimuli (stressors). Learners are more likely to focus on desired learning objectives when they participate in life-like scenarios and receive information which is consistent with the clinical situation being studied. This article, which focuses on [...]
