A Blended Module for the Emergency Medicine Resident: An Introduction to Vital Signs and Emergency Stabilization
Author(s) Bobby Desai
ABSTRACT
Beginning a residency in Emergency Medicine is a daunting task, and the new physician must be aware of what abnormal vital signs are and understand when to initiate emergency therapy. This module was created to teach the new physician about the vital sign of temperature. The module is blended to incorporate online learning via both direct and asynchronous methods, as well as face-to-face interactions using high fidelity simulation.
