With this new training concept, we give emergency doctors even better preparation for missions involving helicopters and hoists. We exercise relevant mission scenarios with you at the Stiftung Bergwacht foundation’s Centre for Safety and Education (Zentrum für Sicherheit und Ausbildung).
Growing demand: hoist missions
With the growing enthusiasm for outdoor sports and increased opportunities for recreation in remote areas, helicopter crews are being confronted with mission processes and injury types that are more and more complex. We provide intensive training in an ultra-modern simulation facility in Bad Tölz, regardless of the weather or time of day. We have also developed individual training scenarios for teaching emergency doctors in both helicopter simulator units.
The course content addresses emergencies of internal medicine as well as trauma. Among other things, we use various techniques to practise rescuing patients from confined locations with a risk of falling. The course also has a practical focus on dealing with patients requiring reanimation.
These one-day courses take place at the Centre for Safety and Education (Zentrum für Sicherheit und Ausbildung), run in Bad Tölz by the Bavarian Mountain Rescue Service’s Stiftung Bergwacht foundation.
