Asthma Exacerbation: An Emergency Medicine Simulation Scenario.

Angus K, Parsons M, Cheeseman N, Dubrowski A - Cureus (2015)

Bottom Line: In the practice of emergency medicine, simulation is a valuable tool that allows medical students and postgraduate residents to develop skills in a safe environment at no risk to patients.In this report, we present a case simulation of an acute asthma exacerbation utilizing a human patient simulator.The case is designed such that it can be easily modified to accommodate the trainee's level of expertise, allowing instructors to challenge both the novice and advanced learner alike.

ABSTRACT
In the practice of emergency medicine, simulation is a valuable tool that allows medical students and postgraduate residents to develop skills in a safe environment at no risk to patients. In this report, we present a case simulation of an acute asthma exacerbation utilizing a human patient simulator. The case is designed such that it can be easily modified to accommodate the trainee's level of expertise, allowing instructors to challenge both the novice and advanced learner alike.

Mentions: Prior to the session, we developed a patient script as well as a stepwise, detailed scenario template (Table 1). This process required collating all the information and supporting documents such as EKG/ECG tracings (Figure 1) and x-rays (Figures 2, 3) that were to be used during the scenario execution. These templates were then submitted to the simulation lab’s technical staff who reviewed the script, programmed the mannequin, and supplied required materials for the scenario’s execution.
