Additional Information

Description

This scenario is a testing scenario designed to follow the American Heart Association ACLS Megacode Testing Cases as they are presented in the ACLS Instructor Manual.

The scenario contains 3 Megacode testing cases which all present a patient with symptomatic tachycardia in immediate need of treatment that follows the ACLS Adult Tachycardia With a Pulse Algorithm. From this state, the patients will go through a series of ECG rhythm changes. The rhythm testing sequence in this scenario is Tachycardia → VF → PEA → PCAC.

The scenario is targeted to healthcare professionals and students at different levels, including paramedics, nurses, physicians, and others with responsibilities in managing patients with cardiopulmonary emergencies.
The scenario offer educators the ability to provide realistic and challenging scenario-based simulation to test learners’ critical thinking and decision-making skills in accordance with the 2015 American Heart Association Guidelines Update for CPR and ECC.
To help ensure a standardized test and for ease of use the scenario includes:
• Assessment form with the Critical Performance Steps
• Equipment list and setup guide
• Learner brief
• A flow diagram presenting an overview of the progression along the relevant rhythms
• Scenario programming with automatic and manual events resulting in a detailed log file being generated during simulation

The scenario is designed for use with a wide range of Laerdal simulators and is compatible with SimPad Automatic Mode, SimPad PLUS Automatic Mode, and LLEAP Automatic Mode.
