The ACLS SimMan® Scenarios set contains thirty-one (31) scenarios that address major learning objectives geared toward cardiopulmonary emergencies. The scenarios offer educators the ability to provide realistic and challenging scenario-based simulation to improve and test learners’ critical thinking and decision-making skills in accordance with the American Heart Association’s 2010 ACLS Guidelines.
The set contains twenty-two (22) core scenarios, five (5) teaching scenarios and four (4) testing scenarios. All core scenarios relate to 2010 American Heart Association algorithms and contain timed events that require critical thinking and specific actions that must take place for the learner to successfully complete each scenario.
These scenarios can be used in a variety of settings where assessment and management of critical cardiopulmonary emergencies are a priority.
• 5 teaching scenarios that allow the instructor to work more closely with participants so that critical skills can be reinforced without the time pressure in the core scenarios
• The core scenarios in the set include:
- Respiratory arrest (1 case)
- Cardiac arrest (2 cases)
- VF (5 cases)
- PEA (4 cases)
- Asystole (3 cases)
- Bradycardia (3 cases)
- Tachycardia (4 cases)
• 4 testing scenarios that focus on AHA Megacode testing
