How Moulage Brings Realism To Training

Bobbie Merica, founder of MoualgeConcepts.com has written an article for EMSWorld.com titled How Moulage Brings Realism to Training.

Bobbie writes “Current research estimates anywhere from 50%–90% of all communication is nonverbal—thus, proper assessment and triage often depend on accurate use of four of the five senses (sight, touch, hearing and smell). Integrating moulage into an exercise creates a powerful training modality that can enhance those perceptions. The use of interactive, odorous, three-dimensional wounds such as hemorrhages improves trainee retention and helps inoculate them from stress when they face the real thing. It can also help teams identify shortfalls in patient coding and determining acuity levels and strengths involving wound recognition, stabilization, standardization and triage on both individual and team levels.”

When I was in Fire Academy we practiced putting out real fire in a simulated burn building after drawing out the drill on the whiteboard. I’d have to agree that nothing trains ‘in 3d’ like a 15-foot tall fire! As Simulation Champions, how can we not do everything in our power to increase realism for our learners?
