Manikin breathes new life into paramedic intern training


Manikin breathes new life into paramedic intern training

A manikin that will assist paramedic interns with realistic simulations during training has been made possible for the Maroochydore station, thanks to a local ambulance committee (LAC).

The Nambour LAC generously donated the baby manikin, which replicates the anatomy of a three-month-old infant.

It will give interns the opportunity to practise advanced resuscitation skills, including airway management, professional rescuer cardio pulmonary resuscitation, vascular access and four-lead electrocardiogram monitoring.

“Maroochydore station is so thankful to the Nambour LAC for purchasing and donating this valuable piece of training equipment and we look forward to putting it to great use,” a statement from Officer-in-Charge Casey Horne reads.

Nambour LAC president Gary Langford, along with student volunteers, presented the donation to the station.

LACs are an arm of the Queensland Ambulance Service, supporting the service in a variety of operational and community roles.

Queensland has about 150 active LAC committees and 1600 volunteers.
