Running Simulation Experiences in the Classroom Has Never Been Easier


We would like to send you one simulation at no cost. This is a fully-working simulation (not a partial sample). The student portion is also available (see link below), but note that the student portion is meant to support the simulation itself.

Our Challenge to You: Try this 1 simulation with your students, regardless of whether you have fancy, high-fidelity equipment, or if you are running with the bare minimum. Nothing fancy is required. Let your students give you feedback on whether they found the simulation useful or not.

Simulation is not the future of Respiratory Education, it is the Now. This new product contains 20 simulations ready-to-go out of the package. There are two parts:

Instructor Manual: This is provided to educators at no cost when a commitment is made to purchase accompanying Student Manuals as a required text. The Instructor Manual Contains:

  • Simulation Instructions: This how-to portion of the guide contains everything you need to know to run simulation in the classroom with a basic manikin (nothing fancy is required), as well as how to run simulation in a high-fidelity simulation environment (with all the data needed to program the simulator, build the environment, etc.)
  • Moulage Guide: This unique guide helps make simulation become more real, including things like diaphoresis, bruising, etc.
  • Ventilation Guide: One of the challenges we face in respiratory is how to adapt mechanical ventilation to manikins that are limited by certain PEEPs, VT, etc. This guide will help expand those limitations in the simulation environment with tricks and tips by experts in simulation.
  • Debriefing Guide: the power of simulation is in the debriefing process. This detailed guide will provide valuable information in how to become an effective debriefer.
  • 20 Simulations ranging from basic assessment skills up through ventilator management and hemodynamics. Each simulation is aligned to the NBRC matrix (references are given), and contains:
    • Equipment chart: Higher fidelity options, as well as basic substitutions
    • Patient work-up: Complete information on patient, including lab values, ABGs, CXR report, Past Medical History, Chief Complaint, History of Present Illness, and more.
    • Comprehensive algorithm that walks you through the simulation from start to finish, using a green, yellow, red theme to help understand where students have made good decisions, or when coaching is recommended. This is objective-based.
    • Debriefing questions with recommended teaching points
    • NBRC Questions / Critical Thinking Questions: These are the same questions found in the Student Workbook, but with detailed, referenced answers.
Student Workbook

A workbook has been designed for the student. This perforated workbook is carefully designed to serve an important partnership with the simulation experience. It is divided into two distinct sections:

  • Preparation Modules: These modules are in random order (key is in Instructor Manual), and carefully designed to prepare the students on any elements you'd like to make apparent to the students prior to simulation. For example, you may or may not wish to have the student review hemodynamic interpretation prior to participating in a simulation that involves a Pulmonary Artery Catheter and Central Line.
  • Follow-Up Modules: There is a tendency with simulation to have the actual experience and then nothing further. These modules can be assigned by number after the fact, and include several elements:
    • Summarizing. This section requires the student to summarize the experience, a very important step in debriefing. Guided questions help the student attach long-term meaning to the experience.
    • NBRC: These multiple-choice type questions follow NBRC-style questioning in relevant topics. For example, a simulation on Pulmonary Emboli may contain follow-up questions on the D-Dimer, V/Q, streptokinase, etc.
    • Critical Thinking: Both scenario-based and more generalized critical thinking questions take the simulation to that final, high-level thinking, level.
Guidance and questions are not available in the student workbook, but are all available in detailed format in the Instructor Manual.

Anticipated Availability of these titles is Spring 2016 (for Spring adoptions)
