How do I … Create a Class

Creating a class is designed for use by a trainer, therefore it is under the Trainer Tools Button. To see this Button, login as any user. The Trainer Button is on the right side of the window. You can have the manikin connected but it does not have to be connected to create a class with logins.

NOTE:

  1. You can only create a class from this Group Login window.
  2. You cannot create an empty class. It must have at least one student login.
  3. A student can only be added to a class when the student login is created.

Creating a class is the same as using the Group Login Tool to create student logins but with one difference. You add a comma and add a name after teh password; thus the format is name,password,class. That name will be the Class name. Class names will be converted to all lower case and will have all spaces removed when you click on the Check Logins Button.

Procedure to create a class.

  1. Click on Trainer Tools to open the Trainer Tools Menu
  2. Click on the Login Tools Tab and then select Group Login
  3. Click in the Group Login Window (This places the cursor in the first line.)
  4. Type: student name,password,class name
  5.        In words: student name comma password comma class name
           There are no spaces after the comma
  6. Click on Check Logins (This will verify the format is correct. If correct the Create Logins Button will highlight)
  7. Click on Create Logins Button

Details On Entering the Names

  1. Type the Name of the Student then a comma (no space)
  2. After the comma (no space) type the password (eg 123), then a comma
  3. Type the class name (do not end it with a space). For each student in that class, add the same class name. HINT: copy and paste the comma and class name if you have a lot to do and are using a long Class name..
Students Not In Classes: If you do not add a comma after the password or type in a Class name, then you will create a student Login which is NOT in a class.
Students In Different Classes: You can create different classes simply by putting the name of the class after different students.

Check Logins Button

  1. When you are finished with your list, click on the Check Logins Button. This verifies that the files names are permitted, that the spaces are correct and that you have a password. If it finds errors it will correct the logins. If it does not find a password it will create a password (1234) and put it into the correct spot.
  2. Change Some Information: If you want to change a name or change any information in the list you can do this when the Check Login Button has finished. To change something, click in the window on the name you wish to edit. When you have finished making the changes you want, you must click the Check Logins Button again.

Create Logins Button

    This becomes active once the Check Logins function has verified that everything is formattted correctly. The Create Logins Button will not highlight (become active) until the Check Logins Button has been pressed and the procedure is completed. When you click on the Create Logins Button, the student logins and the classes will be created. If you made changes you must press the Check Logins Button again.

How do I … Transfer a List of Names from Word Into a Class

If you already have a list in Excel or Word you can copy and paste the list into the Group Login Window. However, you must be careful to make certain the FORMAT is correct before you paste it. Here is what you have to do:

Special Format To Transfer a list of names from MS Word

  1. FORMAT: name,password,class|
  2. It must end with a vertical line.

It must have a special separator at the end of each login. This means that there will be NO returns in the file so it will be a list which is in a single line. It can be very long, that is okay. The terminator must be the vertical line |. Here is an example of the way a list would look.

  1. Bob Williams,123,RialtoHosp|
  2. Melissa James,123,RialtoHosp|
  3. Keana Jacks,123,RialtoHosp|
  4. Mila Panzvrsky,123,RialtoHosp|

The list can also be without any hard returns so that it is a single long line. For example the above list would look like this:

    Bob Williams,123,RialtoHosp| Melissa James,123,RialtoHosp| Keana Jacks,123,RialtoHosp| Mila Panzvrsky,123,RialtoHosp|

Both of the above formats are correct. When you paste this list into the Group Login window, it will display as a single long line. When you click on the Check Logins button it creates the list as you wanted. If you have a long list of names in Word, it is easiest to do a search and replace on the return marker. Replace all return markers with |.

The Check Logins Button
When you work in the Group Login window, before you can create the logins, you must first press the Check Login Buttons. This will verify that the format is correct. It will put in the password if it is missing. The following are valid logins but they will create different tyes of logins.

  1. Name,|               When you press Check Logins Button, it will add the password 1234. The Login will be created. It will not be in a class.
  2. Name,123,|        When you press Check Logins Button, it will create the Login with the password you put in. It will not be in a class
  3. Name,123,FD1| When you press Check Logins Button, it will create the Login with the password and put it into a class.

If you specify a class, and the class already exists, the Login will be put into that class.
If you specify a class, and the class does not already exist, the class will be created.

Transfer a list of names from Excel

If you copy and paste directly from Excel, it will not have the commas or the required terminator. To copy the list it must be in the format:
    name,password,class|name,password,class|name,password,class| ...
The list can be any length.See the description above for transferring a list from Word.

How do I … Perform Low Volume Protocol

The Special Manikin
You must have either a SmartMan ALS (LV) or SmartMan Megacode (LV) manikin to be able to perform this protocol. The name of the product above the Main Menu will display (LV) if your product has had this change made. The special features of this manikin gives the tidal movement of air in relation to the compressions and release of the compression, timing for pushing air into the lungs with a BVM in relation to teh up and down movement of the chest, pressure sensitive opening of air into the stomach, and total timing of both the chest compression and ventilation. These are required to learn how to use this protocol to provide optimal value to the patient.

Why and How
LV was developed in response to the research that indicates quality of chest compressions and time on the chest are the key factors which correlate to survival. The LV protocol reduces interruptions by providing a ventilation on a non-intubated patient as chest compressions are also ongoing. Some protocols also focus on reducing the Peri-shock time without chest compressions. To dowload a detailed written description, click here: pdf on using low volume protocol.

Practicing on SmartMan
SmartMan measures and displays the volume of the air generated on release of the chest together with the small amount of air generated by the BVM on release of the chest. This interaction between the person performing the chest compressions and the person using the BVM is necessary in order to get the timing, volume and rate of air flow correct.

There are 3 videos related to LV Protocol

  3. There is no network to connect to, what options do I have
  4. • You can create a Wi-Fi hotspot or portable hotspot with your Android device. This is the preferred method of connecting if no wireless network is available. Refer to PDF on Creating Hotspot for details.
    • Windows computer have the ability to create a network called Ad-Hoc that your Android device may use. This is not a recommended method of connecting. Refer to PDF on Using Ad-Hoc for details.

  5. My device keeps disconnecting during use
  6. • In VirtualHere USB Server app, go to option (3 dots in a line) at the top right corner, make sure to check "Keep wifi on" and "Keep awake"

  7. SmartMan program is not detecting the manikin even when VirtualHere says the device is in use!
  8. • In VirtualHere client, right click the manikin device and click "stop using". Right click again and click "use" to reset the connection.
