Mayo Clinic Simulation Experience:
Mayo Clinic faculty and staff will guide participants through a simulation of medical and leadership response to crisis situations. The learner will have the opportunity to be a member of a simulated relief team assisting with casualties of a natural disaster. Learners will be divided into teams of approximately 6 and be mentored by a medical provider serving as faculty who will demonstrate some techniques of the clinical care of an injured simulated casualty(mannequin) and then have the team work together to perform these skills.
Skills demonstrated and experienced will include, but not be limited to, control of bleeding, airway establishment, circulatory support, the primary and secondary survey of a casualty and at all times working as a team with closed loop communication and mutual support of team members in a safe learning environment. No prior medical expertise is necessary for learners. All pertinent simulation involves mannequins only with moulage/make-up, except for possible demonstration of ultrasound diagnosis on a volunteer faculty member.
