Very thorough tutorial. Good quiz to gauge understanding. With results on quiz, feedback could be given immediately. Otherwise great.

Really enjoyed this! Enjoyed the simulation and the quiz. I would seriously consider using this with my nursing students. Interesting history also.
Under "Cuff Placement", first sentence, should be "location" (singular)
Would be nice to have a "back" button.

Excelente material para ser usado en Enfermería Básica.
Por mi parte estoy innovando en la simulación clínica, por lo que este aporte es grandiosos para mí.

An excellent presentation that even the layperson would be able to comprehend and understand.
Only thing that I would like to see be added - is a short explanation of what levels are considered to be okay (ex. 140/80) and what are considered to be dangerous levels

Great information-- useful for lecture or for modifying into a "hands on" lab. Applicable for multiple courses and levels of students.

This is perfect for students that need extra help or more time to understand the concept. The simulation is amazing!

This is an excellent review and/or preview for students learning BP skills. I have used this prior to teaching the skill as well as following didactic instruction of the skill. Student response was positive for both. It reaches students through a variety of learning modalitites.

I plan to use this in my online supplemental materials, as it is self-paced, easy to navigate, and accurate. I enjoyed listening to the phases of the sounds, as we have some need to identify the exact timing of the systolic pressure. It would be helpful to have a narrated version, be able to test oneself on the simulation as to the accuracy of listening to and identifying the correct pressure levels, and to include larger font size on the slides. Also, we use the left side as the preferred or most accurate reading side, whereas the presentation always pictured the right are-small, but important detail.

Content was appropriate to individuals in the health science field. Effective teaching tool outside of the classroom for reinforcement of blood pressure skill. Easy to use and material was clear.
The simulations was only inflating the blood pressure cuff which should have included inflating and deflating and hearing the korotkoff sounds to determine the systolic and diastolic blood pressure.

Excellent material, that can be used for health science students, nurses, paramedics, etc. Also may be useful for anyone who wants to know about blood pressure and its importance.
Easy to use, friendly.

This is a good introduction to the concept of measuring blood pressure that would be good to have my occupational therapy students complete prior to a lab where they practice on an actual person. I like that it is interactive and self paced.
