Critical Care/Cardio Thoracic/Paramedic Laboratory
In the Critical Care/Cardio Thoracic/Paramedic Lab we simulate cardio thoracic and medical procedures that are commonly used within hospitals. We have simulation equipment that is used to demonstrate clinical skills techniques that students will be expected to show when on placement in hospital wards, including a mannequin used to demonstrate hygiene needs and washing technique. The model can also be catheterised and used to practise passing a nasal gastric tube. Through specialist techniques we can check whether students are washing their hands correctly - something that is essential in a hospital environment.
