Prehospital Simulations

High-fidelity simulations presenting critical patients requiring interfacility or scene transport.

Prehospital Simulations at their Best


These scenarios have been developed to train healthcare professionals, learners at different levels, emergency medical technicians, paramedics, and nurses involved in the transport of a critical patient to definitive care. The learning objectives are developed to facilitate learners to determine correct priorities and enhance operational assignments. The scenarios may be used individually or in multiples for competency verification. The cases provide learners with an opportunity to practice and evaluate their ability to complete a quick physical exam and assessment prior to transport, organize information provided to make treatment decisions, and prioritize current interventions to facilitate immediate transport. Students will be able to demonstrate their ability to manage patients in an interfacility setting as well as on scene as backup to first medical contact. Included with each scenario is a list of suggested readings designed for educators to supplement their training sessions.  The scenarios are designed for all modes of prehospital transport including EMS ground ambulance, hospital transport, rotor wing aircraft, and fixed wing aircraft.
