Electronic Fetal Heartrate Monitor (EFM) Scenario
Pre-eclampsia is a condition primarily characterized by high blood pressure which can present itself in a pregnant patient during the final weeks of the third trimester. If left untreated, it can develop into eclampsia, the life-threatening occurrence of seizures during pregnancy.
The Electronic Fetal Heartrate Monitor Scenario is a first-person 3D module that trains nurses and physicians within OB/GYN to recognize the onset of pre-eclampsia by assessing the patient's condition, administering medication, and correctly utilizing and reading data from the fetal heart rate monitor.
The simulation was developed by a team of artists, programmers, and game designers on the Unity3D platform and can be deployed via a webpage container.
This simulator allows for a physician or nurse to monitor a pregnant patient over the course of 12-18 hours, while administering medicine, requesting a variety of tests, and keeping track of the fetal heartrate for unexpected changes.
