What’s New 

The latest UbiSim launch is here! We have three new patient scenarios, a special update to our employee health record (EHR), a highlight for our IV lines, and a few exciting fixes.

3 New Scenarios

Our scenarios are unique to UbiSim, bringing our total scenario count to 41, including 5 tutorials. 

Scenario 1: Earl Jenkins, A 71-year-old with Heart Failure Exacerbation

Objectives include assessment, interventions such as gathering labs, starting an IV, interpreting critical lab values, SBAR communication, prioritizing STAT, NOW, & scheduled medication administration, education, and emotional support.

Scenario 2: Xavion Alexander, A 6-year-old with Sickle Cell Disease

Objectives include assessment, interventions such as venipuncture for labs, SBAR communication, administration of blood, patient and family-centered care, education, & reassurance.

Scenario 3: Sharif Amari, A 56-year-old with an Acute Myocardial Infarction 

Objectives include assessment, interventions such as administration of STEMI protocol and fibrinolytic medications, SBAR communication, and therapeutic communication.

2 new features

  • New automatic vital signs logs have been added to the EHR. A log is automatically taken every 5 minutes when the monitor is on and connected. Logs are also automatically added for relevant assessments. 
  • New IV lines now highlight and display a floating name label when touched – enabling easier I-Tracing in VR.

Important Enhancements 

  • Your choice of avatar is now saved after first logging in, rather than being asked again before each session. This can be changed from your profile on the web portal.

    New privacy compliance is available in Institution Settings, where Admins can now disable saving of all web streamed facilitator recordings if preferred/required. 
  • To make it easier to know when ready to start, notifications now appear when each participant and facilitator joins the session. 
  • The direction required to turn up the oxygen flowmeter has been reversed, to align with the clinical setting. 
  • The PPE room sign option for ‘Novel Respiratory Isolation’ has been updated to ‘Special Droplet/Contact Precautions’, as Covid-19 phases from pandemic to endemic. 
  • The Admin setting that allows editor access now applies to Trainers only – Admins always have Editor access. 
  • New password requirements have been increased to a higher security standard. This requirement applies to new accounts and when changing/resetting a password on an existing account.

Bug Fixes

  • Assessment of reflexes is now correctly shown in the debriefing results 
  • Improvements to stability and responsiveness of the platform, in particular with minor network issues
