Emergency medical services personnel and first responders are a critical component in the preparation, response and recovery from all levels of incidents, emergencies and disasters. In order for high quality care to be delivered with high efficiency, all members of the emergency medical response team must work together, mutually reinforcing and supporting each other for the benefit of the patient. ADMS was designed to offer emergency medical services training focusing on command, control, coordination and communication among all first responders under the direction of the incident commander, and first receiver training at hospitals.
ADMS Emergency Medical Services Training
Emergency medical services (EMS), emergency medical technicians (EMT), and other members of the medical and emergency management community can be trained in response, triage, treatment, transportation and pre-hospital care, whether as an individual or as part of a multi-disciplinary emergency management team. In a virtual world, trainees can assess casualties, observe vital signs, decide severity of injuries, assign priorities and choose treatment and transportation options, all in a safe, controlled, and true-to-life environment. ADMS simulates the health status of the casualties as one of the real-life effects of the trainee’s interactive decisions. To make your emergency medical services training experience as true-to-life as possible, ETC Simulation has worked closely with leading trauma doctors to validate the integrated medical information and appearance of the virtual victims. Using ADMS, trainees are able to enhance their skills in:
- Emergency Triage Training Medical first responders are able to triage the casualties by assessing vital signs and other medical information. The virtual casualties can be tagged with color coded triage cards (red, green, yellow and black) to indicate status.
- Emergency Medical Care Training: Trainees can decide to stabilize and treat the casualties. In some instances casualties are stabilized in a crashed car, or in the case of a large scale incident, treatment and decontamination areas/tents can be established to treat casualties.
- Emergency Transportation Training: Casualties can be transported by ambulances and helicopters to hospitals, and non/light injured by buses to shelters. Incoming ambulances can be directed to the ambulance pools to the dedicated treatment area.
- Hospital-Based First Receiver Training: Victims are transported to hospitals by ambulance, helicopter, or by their own means of transportation, creating a need for triage and decontamination at the hospital site. In many cases, this creates a secondary ‘ incident scene’ where safety and security needs to be ensured.
ADMS Emergency Medical Training Scenarios
The medical module for high-impact emergency medical services training allows for flexible and scalable scenarios, with many types of injuries and medical conditions being represented. A broad range of high-impact incidents including car, bus, train and plane crashes, as well as various natural and manmade disasters can be recreated within the virtual virtual environments. Exercises can be customized using the instructor toolset to meet your training goals and objectives, and the quantities, types and severity of casualties can be adjusted within every incident. Emergency medical trainees are able to:
- Deploy initial team rollout of resources
- Set up a clinical footprint on the scene
- Practice technical rescue operations
- Assess, triage and treat the patient
- Arrange for the timely removal of the patient from the scene
- Transport the patient to the next point of care
ADMS Emergency Medical Training Objectives
- Save lives by making the right decisions
- Practice triage, decontamination and transportation
- Support local resources as directed by the incident commander
- Organize and deploy resources in a safe and efficient manner
- Meet OSHA required Hospital-based First Receiver Training
- Prepare for mass casualty incidents
- Incorporate safe work practices
- Apply Standard Operating Procedures
- Train and test your Hospital Emergency Management Plan (HEMP)
- Facilitate continuity of hospital operations
- Enable better performance in live exercises and real incidents
Realistic Emergency Medical Training
Victims and staff behave realistically due to the embedded artificial intelligence, and the physics-based simulation makes the dynamic elements behave as they do in real-life. Training with ADMS requires interactive decision making that will affect the outcome of the training exercise; trainees experience the consequences of their decisions as they would in real-life situations. All exercise scenarios are open ended and your decisions control the development, resolution or escalation of situation. Emergency medical services, first responders and first receivers are committed to the preservation of life, the prevention of further injury, and the promotion of recovery. ADMS can help you prepare to efficiently and effectively meet these challenges, and improve your capability to deliver emergency medical services during incidents of any magnitude.
