Additional Information

Description

The HealthCare Simulation South Carolina (HCSSC) Nasogastric Tube Insertion scenario is designed to provide formative or summative assessment and structured feedback for participants inserting a nasogastric tube.

The Nasogastric Tube Insertion scenario presents a 34 year old male with ulcerative colitis, who presents preoperatively with constant bloody diarrhea, and a distended abdomen.  Placement of a nasogastric tube is ordered, with placement to low suction.

Nasogastric Tube Insertion has been developed for several of the Laerdal software platforms. Each version takes full advantage of Laerdal programming capabilities. As a result, the scenarios are easily run from a well-structured menu. Debriefing logs include color-coded check marks to provide easy-to follow, objective-based debriefing guides. In addition, multimedia is embedded throughout the scenarios to provide enhanced fidelity and "just-in-time" participant feedback.

HCSSC scenarios are programmed to support proven methods for objective-based feedback and Practical Simulation. For more information about HCSSC scenarios and courses, and how to achieve Practical Simulation visit the HCSSC website at www.healthcaresimulationsc.com/simstore.
