OBJECTIVE Appropriate emergency measures are essential in improving the outcome of patients with thoracic injuries. Pathophysiological background and basic principles of emergency treatment decisions should be already taught in undergraduate medical curricula. The effectiveness of a computer simulation model on thoracic trauma management was evaluated. METHODS Forty-one students were enrolled in this pre-test/post-test self-controlled study. Learning experience was based on a complex computer… CONTINUE READING
