New Ventilator Simulator Release

The ventilator simulator is an immersive online mechanical ventilation training tool. This release incorporates the most recent evidence-based guidelines in pediatric and adult ventilation, as well as COVID-19 information and COVID-19 patient cases.

The virtual ventilator incorporates real-time changes in vital signs, ventilatory parameters, patient appearance, arterial blood gases, chest x-rays and more.

By completing this simulator, the learner will be able to:

  • Describe the key features of a mechanical ventilator
  • Set appropriate ventilation and oxygenation goals for a variety of patient conditions
  • Demonstrate how to titrate ventilator parameters to achieve adequate oxygenation and ventilation
  • Outline a systemic approach to the evaluation of a patient, non-invasive and invasive monitoring, and ventilator parameters to determine adequacy of ventilation and oxygenation
  • Demonstrate how to manage mechanically ventilated patients and troubleshoot problems that arise

Notes:

  • If the simulator does not completely fit your browser window, you can adjust the size of the simulator by resizing your browser window. 
  • Please send any feedback or questions regarding the simulator to openpediatrics@childrens.harvard.edu.
