Resuscitation! is a realistic virtual patient simulator for the iPhone. Resuscitation! gives you a case presentation of a patient who is ill. It is your job to take a history, perform a physical exam, form a differential diagnosis and administer therapy to treat the patient’s underlying problem. It includes real, open source images of EKGs and radiology studies. This app allows you to play the role of an emergency room doctor. Resuscitation takes place in a state-of-the-art resuscitation bay where you have all the tools you need to treat the patient. You can place the patient on a monitor, start IV’s including central lines, perform procedures like chest tubes, administer a vast number of clinically important medications, order radiology studies, EKGs, and even call consultants.
Resuscitation! is a very technical medical simulator and is designed mainly for health students and professionals who are interested in emergency medicine and critical care. On each case you are scored ranging from student to attending. Resuscitation! may be too advanced for you if you have no medical or clinical experience. But hey, the first few cases are free, so try it out! There are 5 free cases and an in-app purchase ($3.99) with 34 total cases. There is also an emergency neurology module with 10 detailed cases created by a board-certified academic neurologist ($2.99).
Your support is appreciated and will allow us to continue making fun and educational cases.
