Paramedic

National EMS Week

This is Emergency Medical Services Week.

Why should you care?

Well, given the more than 240 million calls received by 9-1-1 operators each year, in the U.S. alone, there’s a good chance you may be making one of those calls or be the subject of one of those calls in the near future.

So?

So, wouldn’t it be good to know when you call there will be a trained professional always available to answer your call, or the call about your injury or health challenge? And wouldn’t it be reassuring to know highly trained Paramedics and Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) are being directed to your location as quickly as possible with the most current equipment, medications, training and communications to provide you the best medical care possible and transport you to an appropriate health care facility quickly and safely?

“Yes,” you said?

Excellent. This week-long recognition event is a reminder, to all of us, of the importance of this vital service we routinely take for granted. Like water and power, we don’t give much thought to them until we turn a faucet or flip a switch and nothing happens! Then we want answers and we want them now.

This reminder is also an invitation – an invitation to attend an “open house;” to learn more how the emergency response system in your community works; contribute to fund-raising activities; participate in public discussions about policies, requirements, staffing, equipping and funding.

Perhaps most importantly, it is a reminder to say “Thank you,” to the thousands of professionals who give of their time and expertise to help their neighbors in need, often as volunteers.

We, at ReaLifeSim, are proud to partner with the EMS community by providing tools to help deliver the most realistic clinical training experiences possible, so they in turn can deliver the best care with competence and confidence.


Emphasizing standardized patients and additional realism with ReaLifeSim

Andrew Spain wrote "Standardized patients are defined as “a person who has been carefully coached to simulate an actual patient so accurately that the simulation cannot be detected by a skilled clinician."

Why wouldn't we want to emphasize realism during our scenarios?

How can this be achieved with a real person next to a manikin arm to start an IV?

What if there was a device that was not over engineered - portable - lightweight - adaptable to almost every scenario?

Wearable ReaLifeSim IV trainers & blood draw trainers attach to the SP's arm and provide high-quality, smart, and efficient experiences for learners to "train the way you treat."

Enhancing the training scenario by adding ReaLifeSim IV trainers to a standardized patient will give students the confidence and competence that is needed to properly treat future patients.

 

Human Interaction in IV Simulation Training

ReaLifeSim IV Trainers, worn by real people, provide the opportunity to experience a look, a tone of voice, a facial expression, and a touch.

  • Created and tested by clinicians - nurses, medics, technicians, medical, osteopathic & veterinary doctors. 
  • Human interactions with hands-on skills practice - wearable, reusable, and affordable.
  • Lifelike feel simulated skin & prefilled (and refillable) blood vessels provide repeated safe hands-on practice, providing the experience of the "pop" through the skin and "pop" through the vessels followed by a realistic flashback.
