Clinical Critical Care Simulation Lab
The Critical Care Lab is designed to provide high fidelity simulations for students who are learning about critical care or desire to refine their critical care skills. The lab is an extension of classroom lecture for med-surg classes and is also utilized by the critical care nursing elective. With one emergency room bay and one intensive care unit hospital bay, the simulation area is meant to enhance the content students are learning and provide realistic equipment, sounds, and monitors for the particular simulation. Through small group simulations, the patient simulators allow students to intervene to help a patient experiencing chest pain, code blue, collapsed lung, slow heart rate, or traumatic injury.
