CHF & BiPAP Pneumothorax

Case Summary

A 74 year old woman presents with several days of SOB. The learners can use POCUS images to identify and diagnose CHF. They will start medications and a trial of BiPAP. The patient then develops chest pain, becomes unstable, and is found to have a new diagnosis of PTX on POCUS. The learners can work through their steps of doing a finger decompression with procedure slides.


The following slides are deliberately “view only” (since they are the master slides). To use them – you simply need to copy and paste the slides you would like to use into your own, new Google Slides Document.

How can you make your Virtual Resus Room using these slides?
  1. Click on link for Room
  2. This will open in a new tab as a “View Only” Google Slide document
  3. Google Slide -> File -> Make a copy -> Entire presentation
  4. Copy document pops up. Name case. Press Ok.
    • Name slide set something generic like “Room A” so it doesn’t contain spoilers when you share with your learners!
  5. This will open new tab as your editable Google Slide document
  6. File -> Version History -> Name Current Version -> “Unused Room”
    • This will save this untouched version of the room before the case starts (See “Resetting Room after Case” in “Running the Sim”:)
