Abstract:
Our group developed a system for practicing breath sounds auscultation using KINECT. This system solves several problems associated with past simulation education models. The system is inexpensive, and simply operated. We evaluated the process of learning breath sounds auscultation with a nurse and a nursing student. In this paper, we introduce practical exercises, using the KINECT system. We also report the student’s evaluation of the system. We additionally completed an auscultation test using an existing breathing sound file and breathing sound data obtained using the KINECT system, and compared the results. We obtained responses from 78 students. All students replied that they were interested in the KINECT system, and 83.3% of students were able to distinguish an accessory murmur from normal breath sounds. In all, 97.4% of students reported feeling motivated to learn using the KINECT system. The result of the examination to identify a kind of the respiratory sound using the apparatus which we developed did not have a result and the change using existing sound data. The KINECT system was useful for learning breath sounds. Use of the system was interesting to the students because of the simulated patient interaction, similar to those encountered in “real life” clinical settings. Using the realistic KINETIC system, the nursing students were able to develop the skills necessary to distinguish breath sounds. Additionally, the system was motivating for nursing students.
