Altered Mental Status in Child with Intractable Vomiting
This virtual simulation, led by Dr. Nick Slamon, involves a child with altered mental status.
Included in this live, 1-hour simulation:
- Support for up to 5 participants, with one designated as code leader.
- Two mock code styles tailored to your site’s capability:
- Zoom style Mock code leader view for multiple remote learners without VR headsets OR
- VR headset style mock code where every learner in a headset is part of the action in the VR setting
- An extensive “pre-brief” session where the capabilities of Acadicus and introduction to VR landscape is given prior to the start of the mock code to familiarize those new to VR.
- Learner opportunities to drive the care of the virtual patient.
- Dynamic patient vital signs and exam findings that are manipulated by the instructor in real time to react to choices made by the learners.
- Use of realistic VR manikins who can breathe, seize, have rhythm disturbances, change vital signs, show alterations in perfusion and level of consciousness.
- Use of realistic, interactable and fully functional equipment is available to the learner including bag and mask, central and peripheral IV’s, chest tubes, laryngoscopes, endotracheal tubes and advanced monitoring just to name a few.
- Ability to display patient information including radiographs, CT scans, MRI, Ultrasound, Echocardiograms and lab studies when requested by the learners at key transition points in the code exercise.
- A comprehensive “debrief” session where adjunctive learning tools such as posters, algorithms, photos and learning mnemonics will be revealed to help the learners maximize their understanding of the code scenario and their retention of the salient physiologic learning points.
- A screen recording so that you and your team can review your mock code repeatedly together to learn where improvements in care and opportunities for improved closed loop communication can occur.
Work with our team to run this simulation for you, or run your own scenarios and access the entire Shared Content Library using Acadicus Pro subscription.

About the Instructor
Dr. Nick Slamon
Dr. Slamon completed medical school in 2001 at Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia PA. He then completed a residency in pediatrics and a fellowship in Pediatric Critical Care Medicine at the Nemours/duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington Delaware. In addition he serves an Associate Professor of Pediatrics in the Clinical track at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. From 2007 until June 2011 Dr. Slamon worked at the University of Florida as an attending in the 24 bed mixed cardiac and pediatric intensive care unit. He also served as the fellowship program director for his final two years in Gainesville, overseeing 2 fellows per class. He then returned to duPont in July of 2011 serving as the fellowship director and overseeing the expansion from a one fellow per year program to the current 3 fellow per year, 9 fellow program.
Dr. Slamon is an active member of SCCM and the AAP. His research interests are varied but include a strong track record of education and partnership with fellows and junior faculty. Analysis of innovative ways to deliver care are of particular interest. Recent projects include a study of physician biometric parameters using wearables during live critical care activities, a similar biometric project in simulation, use of a digital stethoscope to diagnose pediatric murmurs remotely, review of rapid response activations using telemedicine technology, parameters needed to create a viable pediatric eICU, and he is currently working with a new device to help diagnose pediatric heart failure using an artificial intelligence analysis of ECG/Phonocardiograms. His most recent undertaking involves his partnership with Acadicus to improve immersive medical training through the use of virtual reality simulation.
