1st Edition Sim Pack: November 2020
The respiratory therapy content pack includes a scene template with the patient staged in a hospital room along with various oxygen adjuncts. An interactive vitals monitor and various scenario states are used by instructors, sim techs, and/or standardized patients. Develop your own scenario, or work with presets available in the demo scene.
Control the scenario while students interact with the patient. Change vital signs, patient animations (breathing), and other scene variables.
The scene template includes a a stethoscope, a variety of oxygen adjuncts and an interactive oxygen flow meter.
This scene template is staged in a hospital room, but the content is compatible with a variety of environments such as our long-term care room, ER, or ICU.
Sponsors and Contributors
Organizations can sponsor expansions of or modifications to simulation content to be included in the next edition of this content pack. Expert instructors can gain access to complimentary Acadicus Pro Space to capture and share 3D recorded demonstrations that can be accessed by other Acadicus users.
Jeffrey Wenzel, MSEd, RRT, CHSE
In 1994, Jeff began his career in southern Indiana in respiratory therapy. After obtaining his Bachelor’s degree in Health Services in 1997, he moved in 2000 to the greater Chicagoland area working as a respiratory therapy supervisor/educator for Advocate Healthcare. From there, Jeff graduated in 2002 from Southern Illinois University with a Master’s Degree in Workforce Education and Development. Jeff began teaching in the Respiratory Therapy program at Madison College in 2004. Blending technology and education has always interested Jeff. In 2007, the opportunity to combine simulation into respiratory therapy course work, Jeff quickly adopted this new technology becoming the leader in simulation at Madison College assisting nursing, EMS and other health programs to integrate simulation into their curriculums.
Currently, Jeff Wenzel, MSEd, RRT, CHSE, is the Director of Simulation for Madison College’s Health Simulation Center and oversees six simulation centers across the Madison College district. As an instructional consultant, Jeff continues to work with simulation partners across the world in developing new simulation tools to aid simulationist in their simulation activities
Madison College provides top, hands-on training in 150+ degree & certificate programs at 9 local campuses with online, accelerated & part-time options.
