Learning Exercise: Class lesson on blood pressure readings
This is an example on how this blood pressure simulation can be used in a class.
Course: Fundamentals of Nursing
Date Last Modified:
Have the students read information on how to take a blood pressure in their textbook or workbook Have the students complete the online simulation and take the self-tests at the end of the simulation Perhaps have some group discussion about a reflection of what they learned from the textbook and simulation ( you could provide the small groups with probing questions about key points). Have the students return a demonstration of taking a blood pressure on each other Administer a standard quiz to assess learning A limitation of the simulation is that it does not discuss the use of automatic machines to record blood pressures. It also does not discuss how irregular heart rhythms can cause misinterpretations of blood pressure readings.
