Identification of the Problem
Our students participate in a simulated clinical experience for Code Blue. Currently, the students place, but do not connect, actual defibrillation pads during the Code Blue simulation. These are quite expensive and leave an adhesive residue that is difficult to remove from the human patient simulators. We re-use them as much as possible, but they last for only a few groups, which is cost prohibitive for a large cohort of students.
