Intercostal Catheter Insertion Module


Here's a module that I've developed for intercostal catheter insertion.  The module is focussed on beginners who have little or no previous experience with the process.


The module works its way through a benchmarking video, so learners have an immediate understanding of what they need to be able to perform.

It then covers the anatomy, indications and contraindications, before looking at the preparation for the procedure itself.  There's some great video and illustration to support these sections, and you can interact with it to get more out of it.

Finally, it goes into the procedure itself, the complications you can experience and how to get out of trouble.

Last of all, there's a brief quiz so you can make sure you're on the right path.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on the module and how it can be made better.
