Mobile Simulation Training Unit in Action

Intern Prehospital Skills Day

Intern Prehospital Skills Day

Our UTHealth Houston Mobile Simulation Training Unit was utilized during our recent EMS Prehospital Skills Day Intern Orientation. The newest Emergency Medicine residents participated in the curriculum that includes high-fidelity simulation and hands-on skill stations to provide a robust exposure to various prehospital scenarios and responses, hemorrhage control as well as effective immobilization and patient movement. This orientation was made possible by the Houston Fire Departments Technical Rescue Team and UTHealth Houston’s Department of Emergency Medicine EMS Faculty.


Mobile Simulation Unit Training with Harris County ESD 48

Crews at Harris County ESD 48 have had an ongoing partnership with UTHealth Houston’s McGovern Medical School of Medicine in providing training opportunities. Recently these EMS crews had the opportunity to utilize the Department of Emergency Medicine’s Mobile Simulation Training Unit (MTSU) in pediatric scenarios to test their critical thinking and skills proficiency.


UTHealth Houston Save A Life Initiative

UTHealth Houston “Save a Life” is a new community outreach event aimed at teaching bystanders simple, life-saving interventions that can be done in the field and require little to no medical equipment. These interventions can be done without formal medical training and may buy people in the community the critical moments needed to allow medical professionals to arrive and continue medical care. Our inaugural event taught bystanders and medical students how to perform hands-only CPR and using state-of-the-art CPR feedback mannequins improved participants’ technique. Participants were able to see what performing CPR could be like both on the ground and inside a real ambulance using our cutting-edge Mobile Simulation training Unit (MSTU). Join us for future sessions to see how you too can be a part of the Chain of Survival.
