Simulated Diabetes Testing
Use simulated Neo/BLOOD and simulated urine to learn about this increasingly common disease.
More than 18 million Americans have diabetes while another 20 million are in a pre-diabetic state. Your students will investigate the disease, including its types, causes, symptoms, and treatment options. Provided with several medical histories and simulated Neo/BLOOD and urine samples, they’ll perform a series of standard diagnostic tests. Based upon their diagnosis and the patient’s medical history, they will be challenged to construct a plan for managing the individual’s condition. The class will also take a “diabetes risk test” to assess their own potential for developing the disease. Your students will-
- Study the types, causes, symptoms and treatments for diabetes
- Perform standard diagnostic tests on a fictional patient using simulated blood and urine samples
- Diagnose the patient based upon the test results and their medical history
- Develop a plan for managing the patient’s condition
Accommodates class size of 40 students.
