$7,000 grant approved for Emergency Medical Service's request for training
The primary use for these training mannequins is for the ongoing improvement
of intubation procedures. This is one of the most critical life-saving
skill sets a paramedic possesses.
As technology advances, the caliber of the mannequins has greatly improved
the skill of endotracheal intubation, offering a higher percentage of
success in actual field applications. The most common use of this skill
is during cardiac arrest, so the benefit to the patient and community
can be measured in lives saved. These adult training mannequins are capable
of imitating cardiac dysrhythmias commonly seen in cardiac arrest, allowing
providers to practice the Advanced Cardiac Life Support algorithms necessary
during such an event.
