Ch9 Medics Workshop

Understanding what vital signs of healthy individuals look like is the first step in diagnosing unhealthy patients. Using a wide variety of real medical equipment (pulse oximeters to measure pulse rate and oxygen saturation levels, thermometers to measure temperature, stethoscopes to listen to breathing, peak flows to measure lung capacity and sphygmomanometers to measure blood pressure) pupils  were able to compare the vital signs of a range of clinical case scenarios and offer possible medical diagnoses. Further evidence was then presented to test pupils' theories, including xrays, lung sounds and patient telemedicine interviews. A wonderful workshop to inspire future medics!
