Earlier this week I traveled to Boothbay to see the LifeFlight of Maine mobile simulation vehicle.
They have reconfigured an RV as a hospital ED and are in the midst of visiting every hospital in the state as part of their new trauma and critical outreach program called the Human Patient Simulator.
It’s pretty impressive to see a full METI HPS system housed in a portable environment. There are lots of factors to consider when designing and housing such expensive (and fragile) equipment and LifeFlight of Maine were creative in their design plan. Check out the link to their website above for details about their schedule. If you are close by you should definitely schedule a visit as it is a very unique program and much needed in the state.
Here are a few more pictures of the inside:
