Paramedic students and health care professionals enjoy real-world training simulations at Mercyhealth’s EMS Training Center in Janesville. The “sim lab” is designed to let instructors develop a variety of patient care scenarios, complete with sounds and realistic backgrounds projected onto the walls. Within these scenarios, students practice skills on the METIman, a human patient simulator.
By using video, called METI-Vision, instructors play back the simulation cases to have the students review and critique their own performance as part of their training process.
Mobile Simulation Laboratory
Our mobile simulation lab is a retrofitted ambulance containing all the necessary equipment for paramedic and EMT training, including the METIman human patient simulator. It is used at outlying fire departments for on-going training and refresher sessions.
