Eye motion and life saving

WEBSITE

Eye Simulator/Virtual Patient Simulator 

Hours of educational fun are provided by a website produced by the University of California Davis School of Medicine, which includes an online eye movement simulator. The application provides an eye motion and pupil response simulator, animations to demonstrate neurological testing and quizzes to test comprehension.

It also offers a set of patient cases with various neurological pathologies.

A great touch is the online flashlight that you can shine into the eyes to see whether, for example, a dilated pupil reacts to light.

You need the Quicktime and Shockwave software, but both can be downloaded from the website.

BOOK

5 Minute First Aid Life-Saving Skills

British Red Cross

If you are looking for books to display in the surgery waiting room, or to recommend to patients, look no further than the British Red Cross’s 5 Minute First Aid series. Comprising six titles, these practical guides were published by Hodder Education in May. They include 5 Minute First Aid Life-Saving Skills, designed to enable busy people to learn essential life-saving skills quickly, while also providing advice on what to do in more common scenarios; for example, when a baby chokes.

The other titles in the series cover first aid tips for babies, children, older people, sport and travel.

Copies are available from bookshops, price £6.99, or call 0845 601 7105.
