Abstract

In-hospital cardiac arrests have high mortality rates, increased by delayed resuscitation. Using a single group pre-post interventional design to implement virtual cardiac arrest simulations for medical-surgical units, the purpose of this project was to decrease resuscitation delays and improve self-confidence of the nursing staff. Both response times and confidence improved following virtual simulation. Conducting virtual simulation for resuscitation training may be a valuable alternative to in situ simulation.
