This course is in power point format and includes multiple simulations of pupil reactions that you might encounter in the clinic setting. The course is intended as a training module for clinical personnel.
The simulations are included to aid in your understanding of the pupil and its functions and reactions. They mimic real pupil reactions so that you may follow along and see an APD while having it explained to you. This saves tech training time and allows techs to view and learn about pupil function and APD/Pupil assesment without having to wait to find a patient with an APD in the clinic. Once you have completed this course you should be able to evaluate pupils in the clinic being able to identify normal pupil reaction, hippus, and APD reactions.
Please note that you will need the most updated power point viewer on your computer to view the slides in this course. This may be downloaded for free by using the link on our homepage.
