This Spring, Avkin went on the road to collaborate with VCOM-Auburn for their trauma day simulation in Auburn, Alabama. Megan Weldon, Avkin’s Director or Marketing and Education called the experience of a simulated trauma day ‘an incomparable experience’ when it comes to training medical students and first responders for real life trauma situations.
The student’s had their jobs cut out for them this day, with multiple injuries that required immediate attention after someone drove their car through the finish line of a 5k run (according to the simulation).
One other surprise brought on by Avkin’s wearable simulators was child births.
Thanks to the Avbirth, students were able to practice emergency services for delivering a baby in the field, transporting the mother and child to the hospital while the mother is still in labor with another baby, (yes, twins,) and delivering the second baby in the hospital.
