AIM Group International stages simulation on the Island of Lampedusa
The SIAARTI Academy (Italian Society of Anaesthesia, Analgesia and Intensive Care) went to Lampedusa for a unique training event. For four days opinion leaders and specialists met to confront issues of emergency medicine. Attendees included more than 100 residents from 38 Italian post-graduate schools who participated in classes and took part in simulated emergency operations.
Emergencies and disasters are not simple or predictable events. Through the use of simulation technologies, first responders and medical personal can participate in guided learning replicating real world experience. This singular opportunity improves organizational and logistic techniques in evolving scenarios while teaching the best procedures to save human lives.
