The focus of this scenario is on the principles of incentive spirometry (IS) and the importance of using this technique in the care of your post operative patient.
Identify incentive spirometry equipment and the proper configuration
Recall the appropriate steps for use in incentive spirometry
Validate the importance of incentive spirometry (IS) in post-operative care of a patient
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.
