ETS Burn set version 3

A burn set version 3 is now released for all certified ETS instructors. The burn set consists of a victimbank with various degree of burn injuries and is developed for the purpose of running simulation exercises were the scenario results in a large number of patients with burn injuries.

Developments made for the Burn set version 3:

  • new patients
  • new management cards
  • updated patient outcome categories
  • new markings/stickers

The burn set consists of 72 patients with management cards. Some of the patients who are in need of specialised burn care, for exmaple at a regional burn centre, have an extra management card describing the interventions needed at the burn unit. The patient outcome categories have been updated together with experts from national burn centres in Sweden and Western Australia.

The material has been tested in two simulation exercises. One was held in November 2011 at KMC and was a surge capacity exercise to find out if Sweden can take care of a large number of burn casualties.
The second exercise was held in May 2012 by ETS in New South Wales, Australia. Some additional revision was made after these two exercises.

Both exercises are described on the website:
