What you'll learn

Vital signs are the most important markers for measuring the basic body functions. They can be measured anywhere, like in a medical setting, at home, or the site of a medical emergency, etc. Vital signs are always obtained during a routine physical examination. They are also used for assessing symptoms or as part of a follow-up assessment for patients undergoing treatment in children.


They generally include body temperature, pulse rate, blood pressure, respiratory rate, oxygen saturation levels. Changes in vital signs prior to clinical symptoms can be beneficial for early treatment since early detection of preventable outcomes is key to timely intervention. Monitoring vital signs play a central role and are gold standards in daily clinical practice and their results.

However, they are suggestive; they are of interest to clinicians caring for patients on wards or in emergency departments. The knowledge of monitoring and equipment used for these vital signs plays a very important role for clinicians to better diagnose and treat the patient as early as possible. It can also prevent any adverse events and avoiding the patient in the ICU ward.

Therefore this simulation course provides a detailed introduction to the process of obtaining pediatric vital signs, covering body temperatures, pulse rates, respiratory rates, and blood pressures. Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator offers three different scenarios that test your ability to prepare for and assess pediatric vital signs; each covers temperature, heart rate, respiratory rate, and blood pressure.
