Online Patient Simulations: A New Era of EMS Training in the COVID-19 Pandemic - Meg Carman


The coronavirus pandemic has changed the way we deliver medical education. Students still need realistic patient simulations, but providing these online is challenging. Join Dr. Carman as she explains how to engage students in time-sensitive, moderate-to-high risk decision-making in the prehospital, emergency, or critical care environment. Demonstration of iSimulate© software will be used to create a distance learning platform for interaction with standardized patient participation and responsive hemodynamic monitoring to mimic the online classroom environment.
