Learning tools

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.

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.
