First Responders at EMS World Expo '18 Train for Chemical and Mass Shooting Simulated Attacks

NASHVILLE, Tenn. and MIAMI, Oct. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- During a mock terrorist attack

emergency response workshop, Gaumard's Trauma HAL® S3040.100, the first robotic patient simulator specifically designed for CBRNe (chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, explosive) response training, will be used to simulate the victims of a large scale attack to facilitate training opportunities for EMS teams and first responders. The training exercises will take place today, Monday, Oct. 29, from 1 to 5 p.m. CDT at the annual EMS World Expo in Nashville's Bridgestone Arena.

EMS teams, first responders, and HAZMAT specialists will be provided a rare opportunity to work together on a large scale, true-to-life exercise. They will train in a broad range of skills including casualty care, planning, interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary teamwork, transport, and advanced protocols such as chemical decontamination of victims. All the while, incident commanders will monitor events remotely via body cameras and drones.

"Gaumard's goal is to ensure that first responders stay a step ahead of the rapidly-changing demands of emergency preparedness by providing simulation training tools that can be used anywhere," Gaumard Executive Vice President John Eggert says. "As EMS professionals face ever-more challenging situations, simulators are used to sharpen their life-saving skills in a safe training environment, resulting in better management of emergencies in the real world."

Gaumard provides EMS students and professionals with realistic trauma patient simulators and skills trainers to practice patient assessment and treatment throughout the continuum of care, including point of injury care, transport, and emergency room handoff.

On Tuesday, the Gaumard simulator Trauma HAL® S3040.50 will be the victim during two "Active Shooter Mass Casualty Incident" training exercises. This simulator features pressure-sensitive wounds and trauma limbs for point of injury, care under fire, emergency field care, extraction, patient transport, mass casualty and more.  These exercises are scheduled in Room 101 in the Music City Center on Tuesday, October 30th from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., and from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Gaumard's world-renowned family of patient simulators offer total solutions to emergency management educators and professionals at a wide range of price points designed to fit any budget. Additional simulators on display at the Expo will be:

  • Pediatric HAL® S2225, the world's most advanced pediatric patient simulator and the first capable of simulating lifelike emotions through dynamic facial expressions, movement, and speech.
  • Care In Motion™, Gaumard's groundbreaking wireless video-assisted debriefing solution, which allows educators to record training exercises in the field and maximize every learning opportunity through post-exercise review, reflection, and team discussion.
  • Code Blue® III S300.105.250.PK, a pediatric simulator featuring a comprehensive array of airway, respiratory, and cardiovascular functions, perfect for training individual and team-based ALS skills.
  • HAL® S315.600, a CPR training torso portable enough for traveling CPR outreach instructors, and strong enough to train professionals in-house.
