Branching logic format for the clinical simulations is similar to the testing feature used on the NBRC CSE, presenting a logical progression and creating a "cause and effect" style of learning. High-quality lung and heart sounds, radiographic images, waveforms, and other images provide realistic patient assessment data. NBRC-style multiple choice questions include rationales for both correct and incorrect answers to aid in content review and self-evaluation. Well-respected respiratory care author with vast experience in writing clinical simulations ensures that critical content is covered thoroughly and accurately.
