The programmable features of BPSim™ make it ideally suited to enhance high, mid and low-fidelity simulations by adding the ability to measure the simulated patient’s blood pressure, a critical component of clinical assessment. BPSim™ provides an additional layer of realism to standardized patient scenarios, by requiring learners to accurately measure pre-programmed blood pressure, rather than documenting reported values from the patient.
BPSim™ is app-based and when managed from your mobile device, it can be programmed for any range of blood pressure including: hypo-tension, normal, pre-hypertension, hypertension (stages 1 & 2) and hypertensive crisis. BPSim™ settings are configured through the BPSim™ mobile app, available on the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.
“Training healthcare providers in the psycho-motor aspects of blood pressure auscultation is crucial. The ability for learners to recognize appropriate Korotkoff sounds as well as perfect valve control for pressure relief are key.”
