COVID-19 Rx: Treatment Simulations

You are a health care provider in a developed country. Several patients await your care. These patients are suspected of having COVID-19 and have been triaged by severity of illness. We recommend starting with the mildly ill patient, but you are free to see them in any order.

Ventilator Simulator
The ventilator simulator is an immersive online mechanical ventilation training tool. This release incorporates the most recent evidence-based guidelines in pediatric and adult ventilation, as well as COVID-19 information and COVID-19 patient cases.
The virtual ventilator incorporates real-time changes in vital signs, ventilatory parameters, patient appearance, arterial blood gases, chest x-rays and more.
COVID-19 Preparedness
Quality Emergency and Critical Care services are crucial to saving lives in the current COVID-19 pandemic here in Kenya. Strengthening these services across the country will not only save us now but even when the pandemic is over because, emergencies always happen, regardless of whether we are prepared or not.

This consensus statement has been brought together at short notice to advise on airway management for patients with COVID‐19, drawing on published literature and immediately available information from clinicians and experts.
