By the end of this simulation session, the learner will be able to: 1) Recognize toxic shock syndrome. 2) Review the importance of a thorough physical exam. 3) Discuss management of toxic shock syndrome, including supportive care and the difference in antibiotic choices for streptococcal and staphylococcal toxic shock syndrome. 4) Appropriately disposition a patient suffering from toxic shock syndrome. 5) Communicate effectively with team members and nursing staff during a resuscitation of a critically ill patient.
Pediatric sepsis is a low-frequency, high impact condition. Nurses and physicians do not see it often, but must recognize and treat children with sepsis efficiently when they present. This makes pediatric sepsis education particularly amenable to simulation scenarios.
At the end of this simulation session, the learner will: 1) Demonstrate the management of status epilepticus 2) Justify when airway intervention is needed for status epilepticus 3) Describe risk factors for status epilepticus 4) Prepare a differential diagnosis for the causes in status epilepticus.
By the end of this simulation-based session, the learner will be able to: 1) Recognize and diagnose anaphylaxis according to the criteria set forth by the NIAID and FAAN symposium 2) discuss the appropriate dose, concentration, and delivery route of epinephrine for anaphylaxis 3) list and discuss the rationale for the second-line therapeutic options used to treat anaphylaxis, and 4) develop an appropriate disposition algorithm to be used when managing anaphylaxis in the clinical setting.
At the end of this simulation session, the learner will be able to: 1) discuss the management of febrile seizures 2) discuss when placement of an advanced airway is indicated in the management of a febrile seizure 3) list the risk factors for febrile seizures 4) prepare a differential diagnosis for the causes of febrile seizures 5) educate family members on febrile seizures.
At the end of this simulation session the learner will: 1) Recognize signs and symptoms of delirium tremens (DT); 2) promptly treat DT with benzodiazepines and supportive care; 3) appropriately manage a patient with DT and effectively communicate with nurses and other team members during the resuscitation of an acutely ill patient.
At the end of this simulation session, the learner will: 1) Recognize signs and symptoms of mesenteric ischemia; 2) order appropriately imaging and labs in the workup of an elderly patient with abdominal pain; 3) manage a patient with mesenteric ischemia, a rare, but serious cause of abdominal pain in the elderly; 4) discuss anchoring bias, specifically related to patients referred to the ED with an established diagnosis by outside specialists.
