Medicine with Lt

The Pre-Clinical Medical Collection in Lt uses real patient cases to provide students with a medically relevant learning experience, both in and out of the laboratory. Students are engaged through active learning and self-evaluation as they progress through a structured series of tutorials, pre-lab quizzes, laboratories, case studies and evaluations.

+Airflow

Record spirometry signals and analyze these to derive dynamic respiratory paramenters, such as forced expired volume in 1 second (FEV1). Compare these with parameters derived from a simulated airway restriction exercise. Students also learn how to perform peak flow tests to assess pulmonary function.

This lesson requires one of the PowerLabs below

+Body Temperature

Learn how to measure body temperature at a variety of sites, how to avoid common errors in measurement, and how to interpret alterations in body temperature. Explore the differences between conductive and convective heat loss with a Thermistor Pod and temperature probe.

+Glucose Absorption

Students investigate how the gut and kidneys handle a carbohydrate load of either glucose or starch. They will eat or drink a variety of substances, then collect their urine and finger-prick blood samples to measure the glucose levels over time.

+Heart and ECG

Measure and analyze the ECG and pulse, and discuss the relationship between them. Compare variations between the different leads of a 12-lead ECG and then perform an Einthoven triangle analysis (ECG example data provided).

This lesson requires one of the PowerLabs below

+Heart and Peripheral Circulation

Examine the direction of blood flow in the veins through a series of occlusion exercises. Practice palpation techniques on arm and leg arterial pulses. Record the radial pulse and discover arterial anastomoses and the connections in the blood supply of the hand.

This lesson requires one of the PowerLabs below

+Heart Sounds

Listen to heart sounds via a stethoscope by performing auscultation on a volunteer. Record and analyze an ECG in conjunction with a phonocardiogram (PCG) and pulse measurements.Investigate the timing of ECG events and peripheral pulse relative to heart sounds, to determine their relationships.

This lesson requires one of the PowerLabs below

+Kidney and Urine

Estimate your own bladder capacity, update your knowledge of kidney anatomy and view an abdominal CT scan, and perform urine testing on “patient” urine samples, and urine observation.

+Lung Volumes

Record and analyze spirometry signals to derive static respiratory parameters, such as lung volumes and capacities. Perform basic tests of pulmonary function and stimulate breathing with hyperinflated lungs.

This lesson requires one of the PowerLabs below

+Autonomic Nervous System

Complete the same exercises as performed in a clinical assessment of ANS function. Examine the effects of nerve stimulation and other stimuli on skin potential. Investigate heart rate variability with normal and deep breathing. Observe the physiological effects of the Valsalva maneuver and of rapid postural change. Finally, perform pupillary exercises.

This lesson requires one of the PowerLabs below

+Peripheral Nerve Function

Record an evoked EMG following electrical stimulation of the median or ulnar nerve at a variety of stimulating currents. Calculate latency and nerve conduction velocity.

This lesson requires one of the PowerLabs below

+Skeletal Muscle Function

Refresh your memory of the basic types of contractions. Record and measure muscular twitch responses to nerve stimulation and observe recruitment as stimulus strength increases. Test the effects of stimulus timing on muscle twitch summation and tetanus.

This lesson requires one of the PowerLabs below

+Spinal Reflexes

Refresh your knowledge of the major structures of the human brain and view MRI and CT scans. Test the knee and ankle jerk reflex responses with and without the Jendrassik maneuver. Students will also assess their pupillary and plantar reflexes.

This lesson requires one of the PowerLabs below

+Blood Pressure

Learn how to measure blood pressure with a stethoscope, blood pressure cuff and sphygmomanometer, then visualize changes during a measurement with a Cardio microphone. Assess peripheral circulation changes with a finger pulse transducer. Then examine the effect on blood pressure in the arm with changes in cuff location, cuff size, and arm position. Finally, ask how leg position affects leg blood pressure.

This lesson requires one of the PowerLabs below

+Getting Started with Lt

In this module students learn how to record and analyze data in Lt. A "Pre-Lab" lesson shows students what to expect in Lt labs and lets them explore the types of signals they might record. They also practice their data analysis skills prior to the lab, where they record and analyze their own pulse.

+Muscle and EMG

Record EMG during voluntary muscle contractions and investigate how coactivation and contractile force changes with increasing demand. Measure the decline in your Grip force during a sustained contraction and examine muscle fatigue. Discover how visual feedback, verbal feedback, and rest impact our ability to sustain muscle contractions.

Patient Case Library

Our Patient Case Library contains all the resources that our Instructional Designers use to create our Medicine and Nursing related lessons. Each pack is based around a real patient’s experience and includes video interviews with the patient and medical professionals they see, test results, scan images, patient history information, and footage of the key medical procedures during their case.

The resources can be easily copied to lessons you are creating so you can go beyond what our off-the-shelf lessons provide and simply create the lesson you want, without the need or cost of creating your own resources.

Each Patient resource pack can include:

  • A 50 word clinical summary (brief summary of the patient similar to a medical letter) and larger clinical summary (more indepth)
  • Patient videos with titles and detailed captions, sometimes video of relatives, procedural videos (clinical examinations and medical procedures) or health professionals (consultant, nurse specialist, sometimes OT, PT, specialised technicians and dieticians and surgeons)
  • Labtest results (SI and non-SI units)
  • Specialised investigations (can include chest x-rays, ECGs, MRI, CT etc)
  • Discharge summary
  • Suggested topics and relevant content warnings
