AbcdeSIM is an online simulated emergency department with virtual patients. In an online realistic and immersive emergency department environment doctors and nurses are challenged to care for the sickest patients. Mistakes made in online patients are not fatal as in real-life, but important learning points, thereby improving everyday patient care. Doctors learn to accurately assess the medical condition of each patient, recognize life threatening illnesses and injuries, and resuscitate and stabilize in ordered priority.
In an attempt to provide a positive contribution to the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the VirtualMedSchool and IJsfontein initiated to create a COVID-19 level, based on the existing serious game / medical simulator AbcdeSIM.
This level is offered for free for all medical and health professionals.
This level of AbcdeSIM has been developed specifically for the training of COVID-19 assessment, using the ABCDE protocol. The patient interaction and specific protocol, as well as the physiological behaviour of the patient, has been updated to support the effective assessment of a COVID-19 patient.
