Advances in Training Procedures at FSCH

Simulation labs like this are becoming more and more standard when it comes to medical training, being implemented not only in hospitals for practicing healthcare professionals, but in universities for students as well.  These labs use state-of-the-art equipment, which includes life-like mannequins that are capable of recreating nearly any situation that can arise, including high-risk situations such as “CPR, ACLS, malignant hypothermia, any situation that doesn’t happen very often,” as described by the manager of site operations at FSCH, Tammy Burrows.  The aim of simulation labs like the one at FSCH is to provide our healthcare professionals with hands-on experience in high pressure situations, helping save lives.
