Pictures of a couple of the hands on learning labs that the CCI's participate in. One is the ACLS Patient simulator where we get to practice doing compression, intubating, relieving a tension pneumo and ACLS algorythms. The simulator patient talks to us, has heart and breath sounds, can be shocked, given IV fluids, is connected to an EKG, and can even be ventilated. Another opportunity is provided by our Burn Trauma ICU. They host the Advanced Burn Life Support class twice a year. Our CCI's are often recruited to be the moulage victims (they get dressed up and "accessorized" to look like real burn victims). Both are awesome learning experiences!
