Cough Simulation Video

Description: Understanding how infections are transmitted enables the healthcare worker to initiate protective measures. Using a human patient simulator, we have developed a method that visually demonstrates respiratory particles that are dispersed during a human cough. Using this as a training tool, a mental picture is provided for the healthcare personnel.

By seeing the personal and environmental contamination that occurs during a human cough, the healthcare worker is better prepared to make decisions that can protect them, others in the healthcare environment, and others within their community.
