Well I understand you can't take a real BP on a manikin. So I guess let me rephrase. When doing a scenario, will you ever have a live "patient" aka an actor, that I will have to put a blood pressure cuff on and use my stethoscope to take a real BP? Or do I just put them on a manikin and ask the instructor what it would be?
It depends. If we are using a patient actor, you’ll take a BP on the patient actor and the proctor will tell you what the simulation BP is. If we’re using a high fidelity manikin, you’ll take a BP on the manikin.
