Earlier this week I posted about the CAT Heavy Equipment Simulators from CSE Software, and today I am sharing about their mobile training simulator products for healthcare providers including a Heparin Adjustment Trainer and Smart Pump Training Apps. According to a report by CareFusion, 70% of heparin errors are caused by the wrong dose, omission and prescribing errors. The majority of heparin errors (47.6%) originate in administering the medication, followed by 18.8% in transcribing the order, 14.1% in prescribing the product, 13.9% in dispensing functions and 5.4% in patient/lab monitoring activities. These simulators can help train away these very errors! After reading the below information visit the “News->Videos” section of the Health Scholars website for more coverage of these apps.
In this interactive app, hospital professionals will learn how to properly administer the medication Heparin through a Smart Pump. Heparin is most often used as an anti blood clotting medication, and can be fatal if administered incorrectly. The app will take the user through several scenarios where he/she must correctly figure and administer the medication. Results can be saved for Internal viewing by administration.
