Carolina® Healthcare Simulations: Blood Glucose Kit
In the Carolina® Healthcare Simulations Kit Series, students practice clinical skills, techniques, and procedures. Each simulation includes a case study that provides students with background information about a patient who presents with relevant symptoms. While performing a series of investigations, in addition to gaining an understanding of human anatomy and physiology, students learn and practice skills that can be used in a healthcare setting.
The Carolina® Healthcare Simulations: Blood Glucose Kit provides students with a case study about a retired teacher who has been feeling unusually tired recently. During the lab, students learn how to measure blood and urine glucose levels. Students learn how to collect and test blood glucose with simulated samples and perform urinalysis with simulated urine samples. Students practice using a glucometer and urine test strips. At the completion of the lab, students are able to assess their patient's health and make determinations about a diagnosis. Kit is designed to accommodate 6 groups of students.
Teacher prep, 90 minutes. Investigation 1, 50 minutes. Investigation 2, 50 minutes. Assessment, 10 minutes.
Includes 1-year access to digital resources that support 3-dimensional instruction for NGSS. Digital resources may include a teacher manual and student guide, pre-lab activities and setup videos, phenomenon videos, simulations, and post-lab analysis and assessments.
