Using Training Headwalls to Create a Simulated Critical Care Environment

Simulation training has become a cornerstone in healthcare education. It offers a safe environment for students and healthcare professionals to practice and perfect skills, make mistakes and learn from them without real-world consequences or real danger to patients. One crucial element in medical simulation training is creating an environment that closely mimics real life clinical settings. Educators and healthcare facilities can implement training headwalls into their skills and simulation labs to create realistic scenarios and enhance the learning experience. In this blog, we'll explore the benefits of utilizing training headwalls from DiaMedical to create a realistic critical care environment for healthcare simulation training.

Prolapsed Cord With Simvs Fetal Monitor: Tuesday Teachings - Simulation Innovation

Specialties like Maternal Health have become increasingly vulnerable in the wake of the COVID-19 Pandemic and its effect on nursing education/clinical practice availability. Simulation training is crucial in today’s healthcare education climate as it affords students the opportunity to practice skills without risk to patients. In this week’s Tuesday Teachings video we explore a simulation scenario featuring students tasked to care for a laboring mother who experiences a prolapsed umbilical cord. This simulation utilizes the SimVS Fetal Monitor from the SimVS Hospital OB Virtual Diagnostic Platform as well as the SimVS Nurse Call System. The SimVS Fetal Monitor is an essential tool for OB training as it allows instructors to adjust fetal heart rate and uterine contractions in response to student interventions. Exclusive features like pre-programmed scenarios and a price point that’s a fraction of the cost of high-fidelity birthing manikins makes the SimVS Fetal Monitor a favorite among educators everywhere.

SimVS Nurse Call System: Enhancing Patient Prioritization & Delegation Skills

Two of the most complex skills for nurses to master are prioritization and delegation. They must decide what needs to be done first and who is best suited for the task. There may be some instances when nurses have the time to make these choices thoughtfully, but quick decision making is usually what’s needed in today’s fast-paced healthcare environment. Medical simulation training is the best way for students to learn how to prioritize and delegate patient care tasks as it allows them to make these difficult decisions independently with no risk to patients. Continue reading to learn more about how educators can integrate these types of nursing simulation scenarios into their curricula.
