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 [...]
Healthcare simulation technical staff are often very knowledgeable about computer technology or film production but may be less knowledgeable about the physiological principles which underlay medical simulation scenarios. This article, which focuses on the basics of hypovolemia, is part 7 of a series of articles entitled Physiology, The Force Behind Simulation – A Guide for [...]
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 healthcare situation being studied. This article, which is part 6B of a series entitled Physiology, The Force Behind Simulation – A Guide for Sim Techs, covers the physiological response, treatment and [...]
