It looks quite realistic therefore scary, but it is helpful. The war is on, and we have to do what we should. So we spent a part of the reserve money from the Rapid Response project to equip military paramedics. This airborne brigade’s units take part in military actions, so their medics must constantly improve their professional skills and be prepared to use them. This is why People’s Project bought two medical simulators for them.
The first is an overlay that can be anatomically adjusted onto a colleague’s, a test subject’s, body. The material has the same density, color and the rest of features characteristic of an injured living body.
The overlay imitates a shotgun wound; it has been made to help medics practice in performing a wound tamponade which means plugging up the wound and stopping a critical bleeding. In addition, the simulator is equipped with the system of tubes for transportation of artificial blood which crowns the entire performance.
Another simulator is much bigger; it is a stationary unit that imitates two injuries at once, a shotgun wound and a long deep incised one that could be inflicted by shrapnel. The skills that can be trained using this simulator include performing a tamponade, closing and bandaging a wound. This unit is equipped with a system of artificial blood transportation as well.
We are sincerely grateful to a wonderful Ukrainian manufacturer of all this useful scary stuff, the Easy Practice company, for their participation and assistance. Apart from this, these good people also added to the kits all the necessary tubes, hoses, connectors and receivers, as well as lots of bandages for training. Dear friends, we’re sincerely grateful for that!
As for you, our dearest readers and friends, we would like to remind you that unfortunately the war is still on, and the list of relevant requests submitted by our defenders, still has not been satisfied. In particular, we mean our medics: at the moment, we need to support the paramedics of a SpecOps unit with more technological stuff including defibrillator and other essential equipment. This unit’s medic is not only a serviceman but also a volunteer who is traveling around Ukraine giving lectures on first aid medicine. Hence, the stuff we send will not only save our fighters’ lives but also help in educating the next generations of paramedics. Is this need urgent? It’s a rhetoric question. Is our support essential? This issue is also quite sensitive and rhetoric.
Dear friends, please join in. This is the project where a large quantity of small affordable donations will be of crucial importance.
