Discussion for ABG Online Learning Activity
Christa Steffens (Faculty)
I used this activity in a nurse residency program as a review of arterial blood gasses. I incorporated the tutorial as a part of a "Jeopardy" style game in which resident groups competed against one another to complete the quiz questions. The residents really enjoyed the activity. A few ICU nurses even commented that they used the tutorial after hearing about it from the nurse residents. Since then, the tutorial has been integrated into the ICU nurse orientation. Great activity!

Quality of content: content is very accurate. The ABG Online Learning Activity used appropriate language and examples to explain arterial blood gases. Understanding ABG's can be difficult for many nursing students, this activity makes a difficult topic more easily understood. This activity can reinforce and review in class content but should not be used as a sole teaching device. This activity is appropriate for the junior/senior level nursing student.
The activity is set up on individual slides similar to a Power Point presentation. The slides are easy to read and "click" through. Basic ABG information is presented in the first half of the activity with case studies presented in the last half. The case studies are useful as in class review material. The instructor can pull up the case studies, allow the students time to read the study, and then ask the students the associated quiz questions.
This activity is well-designed to use in the all online classroom as well. This activity will be easy to use by all instructors/students who are familiar with "Power Point" formats.

helpful. Arterial blood gas interpretation can be a little tricky and I have
always had to think about these situations for a while to understand them. This
tutorial provided a step by step guide to interpreting arterial blood gases. I
am really impressed. I feel much more proficient after doing all of the case
studies. The content is of very high quality. The concepts are represented
accurately and completely. This is an excellent guide for a nursing student
trying to understand and apply these concepts. This tutorial is an effective,
interactive and fun learning tool.
