The Importance of Observation During Healthcare Simulation

Simulations and hands-on exercises are designed to promote students’ ability to apply the skills they’ve learned in a realistic way. However, when it comes to simulation scenarios, the presence of an instructor can oftentimes affect the student’s critical thinking and decision-making ability, whether they realize it or not. SimScreen® is an innovative solution to this obstacle, allowing students to function independently throughout the simulation while being observed discreetly by their instructor via a two-way mirror. Students are able to focus on their assessments and implement care based on their findings without the subconscious effect of the observer, just as they would in a real-life clinical setting.

Caring for Campers with Food & Environmental Allergies - Auvi-Q Auto Injector

Food allergies have increased steadily over recent years, currently approximately 7% of children in the U.S. Approximately 40% of these children have multiple allergies, and they are at higher risk for allergic reactions and anaphylaxis when they are at camp (1,2,3). This is because they have more opportunities to try different foods than at home or school, and the risk of cross-contamination is higher. In addition, campers may experience bug bites, pet dander, insect stings, snake bites, and other allergens. This blog will describe how camps must prepare to deal with anaphylactic reactions that can arise from food and environmental allergies.

4 Reasons Why You Need An AED

AED is an abbreviation for Automated External Defibrillator. An AED is a small medical device that is used to restore a normal heart rhythm. Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), which is frequently misdiagnosed as a heart attack disrupts heart beat regularities. The majority of SCA occurrences arise when a person's heart begins to beat in a pattern known as ventricular fibrillation (V-fib). Instead of contracting and relaxing to pump blood across the body, the heart quivers very quickly.

Epinephrine Training: Simulation Education for Anaphylaxis Situations

Anaphylaxis is a life-threatening allergic reaction that happens within a few minutes to hours after exposure. Symptoms typically develop rapidly after exposure. Swelling of the airways and shock can lead to death within a few minutes without immediate treatment. Epinephrine is a primary emergency drug that is used to treat anaphylaxis. It activates alpha-adrenergic receptors to reduce vasodilation that occurs with anaphylaxis. This helps maintain blood pressure, especially within the central circulation. Epinephrine also activates beta-adrenergic receptors to relax the smooth muscles within the bronchi. This helps to open the airway and relieve bronchospasm, wheezing, and shortness of breath.
