Abstract:

The proposed simulation-based system will provide training in applying a wide variety of hemorrhage control technologies and techniques, especially those that have been developed to manage junctional and non-compressible hemorrhage. The initial focus will be to provide learning scenarios for use of direct pressure, packing, and use of the Combat-Ready Clamp (CRoC) and Abdominal Aortic Tourniquet (AAT). Using as a foundation the work we have done to simulate hemostatic agent application (which in turn leverages our prior work in surgical simulation), we propose to use a combination of sensors, physics-based interactive computation, and display techniques with standard, low-cost, readily available manikins to create a robust, flexible configuration approach to providing hemorrhage control training that focuses on non-tourniquetable injuries. The system is envisioned as consisting of a thin battery-powered sensor that reliably measures pressure applied to it and wirelessly sends that information to a simulation computer.
