The Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has created a healthcare crisis that has put a major training burden on hospitals, emergency medical services, and long-term care facilities, among others. To assist you in preparing your staff and teams, Laerdal Medical and partners have created a set of free scenarios to help you prepare.
Suspected Uncomplicated Novel COVID-19 Infection (ARI)
This scenario presents a 55-years-old male presenting in the emergency room with fever, coughing and generally feeling unwell. He returned from travel in an endemic area for COVID-19 1 week ago. The front desk has prioritized him to immediate examination and isolation.
The participants are expected to prepare equipment, don PPE, assess patients and triage to home quarantine, educate patients, communicate effectively with interprofessional team, escalate standard precautions for all patients and safely dispose of equipment and PPE.
Severe Novel COVID-19 Infection (SARI)
This scenario presents the expected arrival of a 71-years-old male with suspected COVID-19. The patient called the healthcare triage call center, with high fever, coughing, chest pain, and respiratory difficulty. 8 days ago, he met with his son who has now been tested positive for 2019-nCoV. The patient has a history of diabetes 2 and chronic liver disease.
The participants are expected to prepare equipment, don PPE, assess patient, administer supplemental oxygen, obtain a venous blood sample, order bedside x-ray, and triage to admission on either Intensive Care Unit (UCI) or monitored acute respiratory department, educate patient, communicate effectively with interprofessional team, escalate standard precautions for all patients and safely dispose of equipment and PPE.
As more and more people rely on healthcare, it is important to keep both personnel and patients safe. To help prepare your staff, we’re offering a set of free resources to help your teams plan and act under crisis conditions - ultimately to helping save more lives.
