We are excited for the CALS Simulation Course at the UCLA Simulation Center. The day will consist of introductory lectures reviewing ACLS, CALS, indications for pacing, and inotropes. We will then run through several emergency ICU scenarios that correspond to the CALS guidelines.
We are interested in studying how this simulation course will improve provider confidence in emergency resternotomy situations as well as patient outcomes. Any feedback that you may provide is appreciated to improve future courses.
To participate in the study please review and complete the consent found in the CALS folder using the UCLA Box link. Please also complete the pretest. A similar exam will be administered following the simulation course.
A link to the mock emergency resternotomy simulation video can also be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sx_tM3rQHXg&t=13s
Please then complete the posttest following the simulation course.
