Amira Mohamed, a 36-year-old refugee from Syria with a history of lung damage from previous exposure to a chlorine gas bombing, is admitted for shortness of breath (SOB). She became increasingly SOB over a 2-day period during the past 7 days. She was admitted to hospital 2 days ago with SOB and fever. Repeat chest x-ray shows a RLL pneumonia for which she is prescribed IV antibiotics.

Learning Objectives:

Recognize signs and symptoms of acute anaphylaxis.

Determine priority actions based on patient status for early interventions.

Demonstrate knowledge related to medication administration for prevention and treatment of anaphylaxis.

Demonstrate effective interprofessional communication within the context of an emergency situation.

Simulation Modality:

Virtual gaming simulation / virtual patient


This simulation’s scenario and script were formally peer-reviewed by two external institutions, then the final simulation was pilot tested by several students on a student testing committee then as part of the Virtu-WIL Student Program’s rollout.
