Title: Virtual Health Care Team: Near Drowning Case Study
Url: http://shp.missouri.edu/vhct/case699/
Creator: Weber-Hardy, Lorilie A.
Publisher: University of Missouri--Columbia
Description: Published by the Virtual Health Care Team at the University of Missouri – Columbia School of Health Professions and created by Lorilie A. Weber-Hardy, the purpose of this case is to "test the knowledge and to build confidence in the advanced respiratory care practitioner's ability to critically think and perform in the care of a pediatric near-drown patient." In this case, a six-year-old boy has fallen into a freshwater lake and users are guided through the case in order to identify what equipment and procedures are needed for intubation and to raise the child's body temperature. The "Bibliography" section leads users to further online resources for more information. This case study along with all the cases available from the Virtual Health Care Team, are excellent additions to a classroom activity or assessment in order to help students prepare for health care careers.
