The high fidelity SIM Man provides the opportunity for students to experience realistic simulations. He breathes; has pulses, bowel, heart, and lung sounds. He even speaks. For this particular simulation, Radiology students join us to learn how to work together to care for the patient. A 22 year old unhelmeted male was involved in a motorcycle accident and thrown 20 feet. The students learn how to protect the cervical spine and work around the constraints of the backboard. They perform a complete head to toe trauma assessment with all appropriate interventions. This is always an exciting day in Melbourne and this event is held twice per semester.
