Now updated to reflect the 2010 emergency cardiovascular care guidelines.
An extraordinary study guide helps students take the knowledge they learn in Paramedic Practice Today: Above and Beyond, and apply it to 15 complex patient care scenarios in a virtual prehospital setting - promoting mastery of NSC competencies.
Two different types of lessons are included in each VPE study guide: preparatory (foundational) lessons and summative lessons to ensure that students can benefit from the study guide exercises throughout their class, not just as a summary tool.
The preparatory lessons cover a particular topic by using multiple cases. The lesson on patient assessment, for example, is a preparatory lesson that covers multiple cases in the software.
Summative lessons parallel the clinical chapters in the textbook and demonstrate the student's ability to manage particular medical or trauma conditions.
Interactive patient care simulation software is used for each study guide lesson, featuring scenario-setting videos, virtual assessment tools, treatment protocols, emergency drug information, intervention wizards, and more.
Serves as a bridge between the classroom and clinicals, so students truly understand how theory applies to situations theyâ€™ll face in the real world.
Realistic, emerging conditions of the patient are a direct result of students' interventions (student's interventions can and will change the patient's condition).
Hands-on learning makes it easy for audio, visual, and kinesthetic learners.
Prepares students for clinicals by removing the risk of harming real patients and builds their confidence throughout the course.
