Ambulance simulator to train medical professionals
Dubai, January 14, 2014
Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC), a health and wellness destination, has received an ambulance simulator from Mediclinic Middle East, the UAE’s largest private healthcare company.
The ambulance used for simulation is integral to emergency response training at DHCC’s Khalaf Ahmad Al Habtoor Medical Simulation Center (KHMSC), a comprehensive simulation training facility, said a statement.
The simulation sessions will provide medical students and health professionals with a realistic first responder experience in a risk-free environment, it said.
Trainees will be able to learn from scenarios across a range of crisis interventions such as cardiac arrest management, and emergencies including trauma, breathing difficulties and obstetrics.
It will also allow trainees to familiarise themselves with conditions with limited space and practise technical aspects of working in an ambulance.
Marwan Abedin, chief executive officer of DHCC, said: “We are always looking to train the next generation of medical professionals in near-realistic conditions and this donation from Mediclinic helps further our goal. The ability to practise in simulated scenarios is key to developing confidence to prepare for real-life critical medical situations.”
David Hadley, CEO of Mediclinic, said: “As part of our continuous relationship and commitment to DHCC, Mediclinic has donated a simulation ambulance to assist with the up-skilling of doctors, nurses and paramedics in a realistic training environment. We recognise the importance of training healthcare professionals to improve the quality of care and patient outcomes, and benefit Dubai residents.” - TradeArabia News Service
