The Simulation Labs hosted paramedic students from the Round Rock EMTS Academy and St. David’s Round Rock Medical Center Paramedic Program on August 15, 2015.
The students participated in six life-like scenarios using the high-fidelity manikins here at the St. David’s School of Nursing at Texas State University. To provide a real world environment for the paramedic students, these manikins were placed in settings similar to what EMS personnel might encounter. For example, one manikin was lying on the floor in a cramped bathroom with no lighting (in the lab's Home Care unit) to simulate a heroin overdose in an apartment with no electricity. Another patient was found lying on a classroom floor simulating having just "fallen" from a 20-foot ladder and suffering a spinal injury. The paramedic students had support from other advanced EMT and EMT students to make the simulations progress as true to reality as possible.
This is the third year that the nursing school and EMTS Academy have collaborated to hold the simulation lab day. The six scenarios were developed by EMTS Academy Director Matt Nealand and nursing school simulation lab staff members Tiffany Holmes and Ryan Douglas.
