Traveling Unit Provides Hands-On Medical Training

Posted: Updated:

A training group says emergency medical providers in North Dakota only encounter a seriously injured patient once or twice a year.

But Simulation In Motion North Dakota says when those high intensity situations arise, volunteers need to know how handle them.

Now there's a way to gain hands-on experience without the pressures of making a life-ending mistake.

Simulation In Motion North Dakota is a mobile education unit that will put medical technicians in emergency situations and teach them how to work through that medical situation.

"ND Star is making sure that every scenario is evidence based so that means it is the most up to date and the best practice that you can have," says Margo Dailey-Filipkauski, Trinity Critical Care.

One of the cool things about this is there is only four in North Dakota. And, it's one of the few states that have this particular technology in this part of the country.

These simulated patients can be mistaken for real people. They can talk, react to treatments. And, even breathe, cry, and even bleed.

"With these simulated patients, it's not what you would do, do it. They are able to do everything that you would do for a real patient," says Dailey-Filipkauski.

It's a chance for volunteers to get hands-on experience without putting someone's life in danger.

"We give you a scenario, we kind of stand back and let you fumble you way through it and at the end of the 15 minutes we break the scenario at that time," says Erica Erck, Registered Nurse.

This is where the learning kicks in. Educators ask what volunteers did well and what they could have done better.

"And when they did their second scenario they nailed it," says Dailey-Filipkauski.

So when those high intensity situations arise, the educators hope the volunteers will have enough skills and knowledge to be able to treat patients out in the field.
