ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — OSF’s new state-of-the-art mobile health care simulator allows EMS workers to prepare for real world emergency situations.
The simulator will make trainees feel like they are in an ambulance, creating road-like conditions such as sirens and engine noise.
Paramedic Instructor John Gasparini said, “I can attest that, on some of the streets we drive on, this is very realistic. This will buck and cause a student to really need to concentrate on what they’re doing, as far as patient care in the back of an ambulance.”
First responders will be able to train to treat strokes, cardiac events, and other medical emergencies with the simulator.
