Air St. Luke's Human Patient Simulation
Your membership dollars at work in your community
In a very real way, your membership is saving lives in your community. Your membership fee is returned to you and your neighbors through clinical education, training, and equipment for local EMTs, firefighters, nurses, physicians, and other health care providers.
This includes the latest in emergency training – Air St. Luke’s Regional Education and Simulation Lab (REAL), our mobile training unit. From growing cities to mountain villages to rural communities, the Air St. Luke’s REAL mobile unit delivers free, hands-on, advanced emergency training right to the doors of local first responders and other medical professionals. The REAL mobile unit brings them the opportunity to sharpen their skills and learn new emergency techniques so they are prepared when you need them most.
The REAL mobile unit features SimMan, a programmable medical mannequin that displays vital signs such as heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing, and that can “die” and be brought back to life. Medical personnel can train and practice trauma scenarios to stay prepared for when the actual emergencies arise.
