Project Improvement of Neonatal Resuscitation Outcome Through Simulation in Latvia
|5'000 Euro research grant with ESPNIC|
The intent of the grant is to provide support for young and talented physicians in their early career in the field of neonatal intensive care with focus on Simulation Based Continued Education (postgraduate). The research activities undertaken shall be with the active contribution of the applicant. The award will be announced at the General Assembly during the Annual Congress.
|LuSi calibration device abstract|
A calibration device was designed and built to assess the accuracy and precision of lung simulators such as LuSi.
|LuSi Physiological Model|
Model based simulators provide consistent simulation teaching yet are challenging to validate. Although a fundamental issue, little attention has been given to validation."The Comprehensive Textbook of Healthcare Simulation" covers the subject only on few pages. The authors conclude with ".....the onus is on all supervisors who run interactive simulations to be aware of the inaccuracies of the simulator .... and how these might cause negative learning". The purpose of this document is to provide comprehensive information for these supervisors and trainers in order for them to assess the models built into LuSi for fitness of their training goals.
|LuSi Case Development|
The purpose of this booklet is to help LuSi users create clinical cases for simulation based training.
|TestChest Physiological Model|
This booklet describes the physical representation of the physiological models built into TestChest®. The information provided herein is intended for clinicians who wish to exploit the full capabilities of TestChest® and is not intended to be a textbook of physiology. In order to make the physiological models of TestChest® feasible, some simplifications were necessary. These are explained in the text.
