Four Trucks to be used for Emergency Medical Simulation
Four emergency response simulation units were purchased through a UND grant for Simulation in Motion North Dakota. The program will help educate and refresh the skills of medical providers across the state.
Deb Grabow is the Simulation Coordinator for Sanford Health. She said the four units are trucks that have one side as a replica of an Emergency Room and the other side as the replica of the back of an ambulance.
“My true passion for this would be to really bring trauma and emergency education to all areas across the state,” Grabow said.
Trucks will be based in Bismarck, Minot, Grand Forks, and Fargo. Emergency response teams will go to rural areas around their base to help refresh the skills of other medical providers.
Grabow said the grant will run for three years, after that the hope is to have the state fund the simulation units.
