A new training simulator has been opened in Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance’s new airbase in Thruxton. The new simulator will help first-responders with training for different environments, from the Hampshire Forest to a crowded nightclub. It allows them to practice their technical skills as well as how they work as a team. After each scenario, the team is able to have a thorough debrief, commenting on strengths and weaknesses and how the situation is best handled.
New features of the immersive training simulator will be added, such as environments including the New Forest, University Hospital Southampton’s resuscitation room. The aim is to make the scenario as realistic as possible. The iSimulate helps with this goal. It is a real-time feedback monitor that relays the patient’s information to the crew as treatment is being given, reports Island Echo. This new technology is pioneering in the goal to refining first-responders skills.
