Use this App in your simulation training, you won't believe what happens next!
Ultrasound is a fantastic tool for helping diagnosing the cause of undifferentiated shock in patients. However, case training can be hard given the nature of the device. Often simulations only provide static images like printed copies, or oral confirmation of the diagnose and pathology from the simulation leader. This can be OK for the purpose of the simulation, but often leaves the participants questioning if they really would have gotten the same result given a real patient with real pathology.'
If simulation also can provide a way to interpret ultrasonographic pictures as part of the case, putting them in clinical context, maybe both self esteem and knowledge can be gained? Maybe
-"OK, so what do I see?"
can now be answered with:
-"Well, you tell me!"
