Sims promise 'revolution' in medical training
DefenseNews
Future medical training needs for military and civilian doctors are similar; the list includes virtual patients and cadavers, haptic technology, advanced simulators for high-fidelity operations and patient-specific sims. This was the view presented by retired Col. Richard Satava, senior science adviser for the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command, during a panel about the dual use of technology in military and civilian arenas at the ITEC 2013 simulation and training conference. Technologies for medical simulation are useful in both fields and could be programmed to teach doctors to treat the victim of a car crash or someone injured in combat.

Civilian medical providers learn military medic trauma care
Watertown Daily Times
The only noises that could be heard in the dark, smoke-filled war zone were gunfire and the faint breaths of wounded soldiers who were assessed and treated by medics. That training exercise at the post's Bridgewater-Vaccaro Medical Simulation Training Center in New York showed civilian emergency medical service providers what treatment practices are used in combat, giving the civilian providers ideas on how local protocols could be improved in treating patients.

EmergyCare teaches new CPR
Kansas First News
Darren Redding spent part of his pounding on the chest of a $25,000 mannequin. Redding was one of more than a dozen Erie, Kan.-area first responders who were learning a new, more effective way of performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation during a training session at EmergyCare. "This type of CPR is a little harder," said Redding, an EmergyCare emergency medical technician. "You're doing more chest compressions before you break." EmergyCare is training all 230 of its first responders in the high-performance method of CPR, which will be mandated in Pennsylvania beginning July 1. CPR is performed on people who suffer cardiac arrest in an effort to keep their heart pumping until normal rhythm is restored.

In debate over 'biosimilars,' patient safety must come first
The Baltimore Sun
Abby Bernstein writes, "On average, biologics contain molecules that are a thousand times larger than most regular medicines. That's because they are made from living organisms rather than chemical compounds. Because of this complexity, there's no real way to make a true generic version of a biologic. However, a less expensive copy that's similar enough to treat the same disease can be manufactured. These drugs are called 'biosimilars.'"

Readmission simulator could help healthcare staff improve care coordination
MedCity News
You're working in the ER when a patient comes in with severe congestive heart failure. You look up their file and find out they were discharged within the past 25 days. Was there a way this could have been avoided? You need to figure out where the breakdowns occurred in the patient's care so you and your team can make the right decisions to avoid such as fast readmission again. What do you do?
