RespiSim Scenarios


Our Vision

IngMar Medical’s vision for the RespiSim® System is to develop a platform for collaboration within the respiratory care community resulting in time savings for instructors, more consistent training, higher skill levels, and ultimately better patient outcomes.

What Are RespiSim Scenarios?

Simulating clinical reality is a challenging task, especially with simulations involving several opportunities for learners to gather information and make treatment decisions. RespiSim Scenarios make simulation easier and save time.

RespiSim Scenarios are comprehensive learning modules which combine multiple patient conditions, assessments, instructor notes, and patient condition information for the learner.

RespiSim Scenarios were developed by our Clinical Education team in collaboration with various subject matter experts. We encourage RespiSim users to customize all aspects of the scenario to meet their specific goals. If you would like help customizing or developing a scenario in RespiSim, please consider our consultation services.

Our scenarios are meant for educational practice only and are not meant to replace policies or protocols established by medical professionals. Always refer to your organization’s policies and procedures for best clinical practice.

Cycle Dysynchrony in PC-AC

Download Scenario

Intended Learners: Critical Care Clinicians, Advanced Mechanical Ventilation Learners

Duration: 15 minutes

Learning Goals: The learner develops the knowledge, skills, and critical thinking skills necessary to identify and resolve cycle dysynchrony in PC-AC. The learner developed skills to identify and correct low oxygenation.

Objectives:

  1. Recognize trigger dysynchrony utilizing scalar waveforms.
  2. Correct cycle dysynchrony by understanding appropriate ventilator parameters.
  3. Assess hypoxemia and recommend ventilator parameter changes to correct oxygenation.
  4. Identify acute lung injury and implement a lung protective ventilation strategy.
