Emergo Train System (ETS) is an academic / educational simulation system used in several countries around the world for training and testing the preparedness and management of emergencies, major incidents and disasters.
The ETS military victim bank consists of patients with ‘war-injuries’ – both severe and minor – such as for example penetrating gun wounds, penetrating blast injurie, tissue injuries etc. for the purpose of running simulation exercises in a military setting.
The Military victim bank consists of 50 patients with management cards. The management cards are available as level 2 and level 3 symbolising the different level of care. Level 2 can be either an outpatient clinic or a Forward surgical team (FST) with limited emergency surgery capability. Level 3 is a theatre hospital with limited capability and 30 days ICU holding capability.
The material has been developed together with subject matter expertise and tested in a number of exercises held at the KMC - Centre for Teaching & Research in Disaster Medicine and Traumatology. The exercises were part of a research project.
Further symbols for running exercises in a military setting have been developed, for example staff, vehicles etc. Those symbols can be purchased separately to be able to design a training set specific for your organisation.
