This module covers how to prepare for and administer nebulizer treatment, assess peak flow and perform a spirometric test.

This module teaches you how to prepare for and administer nebulizer treatment, assess peak flow and perform a spirometric test. Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator offers two scenarios that test your ability to either assess peak flow and perform nebulizer treatment, or perform spirometry. Practice the steps of the procedures online as often as you want, until you feel confident. 

If you are not a medical student or physician, you may prefer the other version of this module, which includes all the procedural information need by professionals in other roles:

You’ll learn

  • to visualize the anatomy of the upper and lower respiratory systems, specifically the key structures of the nasal cavity, oropharynx, laryngopharynx and the lungs and bronchioles
  • how to prepare for administering nebulizer treatment and assessing peak flow
  • to practice and perfect your skills in administering nebulizer treatment, assessing peak flow and performing a spirometric test
  • much more (see Content Details for more specific information)

The SIMTICS modules are all easy to use and web-based. This means they are available at any time as long as the learner has an internet connection. No special hardware or other equipment is required, other than a computer mouse for use in the simulations. Each of the SIMTICS modules covers one specific procedure or topic in detail. Each module contains:

  • an online simulation (available in Learn and Test modes)
  • descriptive text, which explains exactly how to perform that particular procedure including key terms and hyperlinks to references
  • 2D images and a 3D model of applied anatomy for that particular topic
  • a step by step video demonstration by an expert
  • a quiz
  • a personal logbook that keeps track of all the modules the learner has studied and how long
