SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Angel MedFlight Air Ambulance's Flight Nurses and Flight Paramedics train with a lifelike, high-tech patient simulator called SimMan®3G. This full-body simulator allows real-time critical and emergency scenarios for immediate response and recovery. Training on SimMan® is just part of the rigorous orientation process and stringent continuing education hours required of medical flight crew and staff.

SimMan® allows for Angel MedFlight's clinical educators to create true-to-life patient scenarios and cases to test and train flight medical teams.  Since SimMan® is designed with all the functioning systems of a real patient, medical personnel are able to treat the patient as they should and the patient's systems react just as a real patient's systems would in the field.

SimMan® 3G is virtually lifelike: He blinks, cries, has a pulse, and can make heart, lung and bowel sounds.  His pupils respond to light.  He can secrete from his mouth, eyes, ears and nose.  He responds to medications, anesthesia, oxygen and carbon dioxide.

"Training on SimMan is like treating an actual patient who reacts to drugs, procedures and stimuli," says Angel MedFlight Education Director, Matt Greenwell, R.N. "He gives us the opportunity to treat a full range of conditions and patients, from normal to stable to unstable, and offer practitioners critical scenarios on which to respond accurately."

SimMan® is a valuable educational tool in Angel MedFlight's lifesaving efforts. Patients reap the benefits that this real-time, authentic training affords. Critical Care Flight Nurses and Paramedics are required to participate in regular ongoing and annual training, including hazardous materials recognition and response, infection control, critical care for adult, pediatric and neonatal patients and flight safety.
