Ornge, Ontario’s provider of air ambulance and related services, took first place at the 2016 Canadian Association of Emergency Physicians (CAEP) Simulation Olympiad. This is the first time Ornge has participated in the competition.
The team consisted of two Ornge Critical Care Flight Paramedics and two Physicians.
“I was extremely proud to see the Ornge team succeed,” says Dr. Andrew McCallum, President and CEO of Ornge. “It is nice to see the skills of Ornge staff on such public display, and this competition provided a glimpse into the outstanding care our crews provide for Ontario patients every day.”
There were eight teams from across Canada comprised of emergency medicine residents and allied health professionals from medical schools across Canada. Through three rounds, the Ornge crew faced stiff competition. At each stage they excelled, and the medical audience particularly appreciated their airway management checklist and superb crew resource management. In the final, the team managed a tough paediatric immersion hypothermia scenario beating a skilled team from the University of Alberta.
Ornge will defend the CAEP Simulation Olympiad Championship in 2017 in Whistler, British Columbia.
