This page aims at providing medical professionals and trainers with simulation resources to provide their staff with high quality training and educational resources for dealing with COVID-19 cases. The 3B Scientific Group, including iSimulate and Cardionics, has put together a list of scenarios for monitoring "Coronavirus" patients. We have also included a tutorial on how to use the REALITi patient monitor simulators for distance based learning. In addition, you will find a link to request free access to the auscultation course library SAM Online for remote study.
Please note: all users of the REALITi patient monitor simulation system by iSimulate can add these cases to add to their live systems. If you do not own the system, you can still download the REALITi360 patient monitor app free from your app store and add the scenarios, however, with a limited functionality.
The learning cases below are templates and can be edited to fit individual training needs. They are designed to be run as a standalone simulation or as a screen recording to use for online/ LMS discussion and to foster critical thinking conversations.
All of these COVID-19 simulation scenarios have been developed based on real patient cases.
Mild case, description:
24 YOF presents to the ED/EMS for fever, cough shortness of breath, pleuritic chest pain. States that her mother tested positive ~7 days ago and has been quarantined at home with her and her 9-year-old son. States worsening fevers, muscle ache, frontal headaches, cough causing shortness of breath and the chest pain.
Moderate case, description:
54 YOF presents to ED/clinic for evaluation of worsening shortness of breath. Patient has been experiencing COVID symptoms for 8 days and is COVID + on outpatient testing.
Severe case, description:
73 YOM presents with 2 days of progressive cough and SOB. Staff states he has bad seasonal allergies, which makes his COPD worse. He is has been reluctant for help from staff and has been supplementing with his nebulizer. He called the nurse today unable to speak in full sentences.
Mild case, description:
44 YOF presents with 4 days of progressive cough and SOB. Reports 4 days of fevers and weakness that have since resolved. Significant COVID+ exposure in the ED 5 days ago. Pt is an ED nurse at neighboring ED. Patient presenting to ED 3 days ago for testing however returned due to worsening SOB.
With the 3B Smart Anatomy courses, you receive access to 23 anatomy lectures, 117 interactive virtual anatomy models and 39 anatomy quizzes to test your learning progress. Access to the anatomy app is usually provided exclusively with the purchase of a 3B Scientific anatomy model. In order to support distance based learning during the coming months, 3B Scientific has unlocked unlimited free accounts for the medical community around the globe. Watch this quick video to preview the content of the app and use the link below to register for your free account.
During the past weeks, our Customer Service teams have frequently received questions about the proper cleaning of 3B Scientific® anatomy models. We've therefore decided to put together a quick guide for you with some practical recommendations.
3B Scientific® anatomy models are manufactured from the highest quality materials and we only use long lasting colors to finish the anatomical details. Please follow the steps to clean your anatomy model while keeping its parts and paint safe.

The REALITi 360 patient monitor simulators by iSimulate mimic branded patient monitors and vital sign monitors to provide a learning tool as close to the reality as possible. The app is available for download in the app store and requires a license to be unlocked. There are currently three simulation systems offered in the REALITi 360 suite: the starter version REALITi GO, the quality version REAILITi PLUS, and the full version with CPR Feedback and Video Debriefing REALITi PRO. All three systems support the new Remote Control Module for distance learning.
With the 3B Scientific® Patient Care Training Manikin PRO, a number of medical skills can be trained, such as:
The newest update to the best selling BLS training manikin includes a student and instructor app for direct feedback and analysis of the CPR performance for up to 6 manikins at a time.
CPR Training with direct feedback is easy with this advanced CPR Training Manikin. It allows instructors to comfortably monitor the CPR performance of up to ten (10) trainees at a time.
This Airway Management Trainer is ideal for advanced training in:
This Auscultation Trainer is delivered with the versatile SimScope Auscultation Training Stethoscope. All heart, lung and bowel and bruit sounds as well as videos are recorded from adult live patients for students to experience a life-like simulation.
This I.V. Injection Trainer is the ideal simulator for practicing the following medical skills:
You have access to a wide range of consumables to meet hygienic requirements with 3B Scientific medical simulators and task trainers. We have linked the currently most sought after products here below:
