The importance of Debriefing in Healthcare Simulation-Based Learning as is an important teaching and learning tool

  • healthcare

Healthcare simulation is an important teaching and learning tool. It allows students and trainees on all levels to acquire relevant experience and practice specific abilities in a safe and controlled setting. However, the effectiveness of simulations relies on several factors the use of debriefing to ensure that the learning process is working as intended.

Innovative Strategies for Mobile Health Solutions

  • simulation

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia, and its prevalence is increasing. Early diagnosis is important to reduce the risk of thromboembolic events and stokes. The authors investigated the topic of mobile health solutions quite extensively through technical aspects of detection and proper management. The authors covered different parts of the issue efficiently. One of the first parts was on mobile health solutions that they covered using an extensive literature review.

Investigating effects of healthcare simulation on personal strengths and organizational impacts

  • healthcare

Healthcare professionals must make a lot of choices. Many of these choices occur in high pressure environments when every minute counts or when a wrong decision might lead to severe consequences. Doctors, nurses, therapists, and other professionals often face a lot of work-related stress that requires them to continue to operate at their best, meaning that they need honed skills and instincts. The ability and knowledge required for this only comes from practice, but practice is not always possible.

Impact of pulse pressure on clinical outcome in Extracorporeal Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation patients

  • article review

The researchers realized that more than half a million people in America suffer cardiac arrest each year. In Europe, more that quarter a million people suffer out of hospital cardiac arrest annually.Rilinger and his colleagues proposed that refractory cardiac arrest and veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation can be referred to as extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation (eCPR) and it can be used as therapy for patients suffering from both cardiac arrest and out of hospital cardiac arrest.

Vasoplegic syndrome following cardiothoracic surgery— A Review of pathophysiology and update of treatment options

  • cardiac

Vasoplegic syndrome occurs in up to 50% of all patients receiving cardiac surgery. This condition is a type of vasodilatory shock that proceeds cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). Vasoplegic syndrome involves normal or increased cardiac output and decreased systemic vascular resistance (SVR) leading to organ hypoperfusion. It has a similar mechanism and presentation as sepsis, usually requiring vasopressors to improve mean arterial pressure (MAP).
