Innovation in Emergency Medical Response

Emergency medical responders are using patient simulation today to practice lifesaving skills that require precision and speed, such as airway management. They’re creating interdisciplinary disaster scenarios to improve communications among different response teams. They are leading students through golden hour scenarios, covering all aspects of patient care from the point-of-injury to transport to the operating room. CAE Healthcare offers the most authentic training tools for the rigors of emergency medical response.  The CAE Healthcare line of patient simulators and validated scenarios challenge the trainee’s clinical and critical thinking skills, providing the best possible preparation for emergency care without any risk to real patients.

WakeMed Center for Innovative Learning, North Carolina, USA

Over the past few decades, EMS providers have rapidly adopted hospital technologies-- from pulse oximetry to 12-lead ECG monitoring to capnography — that have allowed emergency responders to capture more accurate patient information and deliver better care. Amar Patel, director of the WakeMed Center for Innovative Learning, which is part of WakeMed Health and Hospitals in Raleigh, North Carolina, USA, believes that the next wave of technology for EMS will be ultrasound. “Ultrasound can help us manage and treat patients’ medical trauma more effectively,” says Patel. “It’s a tool that we need to embrace.”
