Now there is a comprehensive free site enabling professionals & students to hone & master clinical & diagnostic skills. Practical Clinical Skills offers valuable resources such as study guides, audio simulations of heart & lung conditions & interactive drills. Tips on what to look out for during diagnosis are displayed adjacent to the associated simulation. It also features structured courses for review.
The interactive simulations are involved & helpful. Here are some examples:
- Take the blood pressure of a 65 year old woman with a two hour history of chest pain and dizziness using either an aneroid or mercury manometer & see if your observation is correct.
- Determine if a 12 year old male has hypertension & determine a treatment plan if necessary.
- Read an EKG & determine the patients condition.
- Ascultate the patient’s abdomen to find out what an abnormal whispered pectoriloquy sounds like.
This is a great tool for anyone trying to master skills, whether brushing up on fading skills or studying for the exam.
