Developing an Effective Education Plan for Simulations Based on AHA 2020 Guideline & NREMT Psychomotor Scenarios


Simulation is a powerful tool for EMS educators to teach standardized patient care and to enhance patient safety on the streets. For an effective simulation you need qualified trainers, a goal-oriented curriculum and reliable simulation technology. Georg and Andreas will show and discuss how to develop an effective simulation scenario based on AHA 2020 Guidelines or NREMT Psychomotor cases. The usage of custom, high-fidelity, patient monitors, defibrillators, and ventilators will help your trainers carry out these scenarios in as realistic a way possible.

Next Generation Technology for the Next Generation

Worldwide, there are almost 1.3 billion adolescents between the ages of 10 and 19, of which 42 million are in the U.S. They represent a specific group with distinct challenges. Understanding and preparing for these specific needs will allow healthcare workers across the globe help adolescents and teens in crises. And they are needing help. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) says 16-18% of adolescents had 1 or more emergency department (ED) visits yearly. That’s at least 6.5 million ED visits every year in the U.S. alone. The numbers may vary from country to country, but the reality is the same – teens are in EDs in large numbers.
