Six of the Wisner EMT members participated in the Simulation in Motion-Nebraska mobile simulation training experience last Wednesday evening. The program is designed to increase life-saving training opportunities for rural emergency medical providers and hospitals through the use of mobile high-tech simulation trucks.
The 44-foot trucks include dual slide-out room extensions. The front section is used as an emergency department room. The middle section is the simulation control room and the rear section is the ambulance module.
The high fidelity patient simulators (mannequins) can respond to the treatment they are given, can talk, breathe and bleed. The training courses include an adult male, adult female capable of giving birth, a child and an infant.
