iPads were deployed with the patient monitor app SimMon as part of CSU’s mLearn Project. The iPads were used to enhance the simulation environment in the skills ward and were used in conjunction with simulation manikins that were already in situ.
To use this app, one device becomes a patient monitor, displaying patient heart rate, blood pressure and SpO2. A second device is used by the
facilitator to change patient vital signs on the first device (the monitor) in order to simulate a deteriorating or improving patient.
The iPads are also used to access resources such as e-MIMS for students to look up different drugs and acquire the most up to date information.
This also extends to a range of other resources available through CSU Library’s extensive digital catalogues
