Innovations in Trauma Training With Henry Heimlich, M.D. (1997)
Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM)
The Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical Services Systems (MIEMSS) in Baltimore has developed an innovative program using life-like simulators and human cadavers to teach the life- saving skills taught in trauma training classes offered by many medical centers in the U.S. and Canada. These courses, which train physicians to provide emergency care to trauma patients, often use live animal laboratories to demonstrate procedures and test students. The MIEMSS program is an alternative to the use of live animals in training. Henry Heimlich, M.D. narrates this examination of one program using alternatives to train physicians in trauma care. The film includes interviews with the course director, a course instructor and the participants who reflect on their experience with the program. The film is designed for course instructors and for health professionals interested in options that reduce or eliminate the use of animals in trauma training.
