NorthShore’s online source for timely health and wellness news, inspiring patient stories and tips to lead a healthy life.
NorthShore University HealthSystem's new “Simbulance” (donated by Superior Ambulance) made its big debut last week at all of NorthShore's hospitals. This ambulance will be used for community outreach (like CPR, Stroke, and Epi-Pen education) and EMS training by our local fire department and Emergency department.
Check out the photos for an inside peek and tour of all the cool things the Simbulance offers!
Thank you to Superior Ambulance for your generous donation of the Simbulance to NorthShore!
CPR dummies both blink and have accurate medical reactions to diseases, conditions, and treatments. They are powered by batteries and can be moved around wirelessly. They can be given IV fluids, which are collected in pouches inside.
John Cram, NorthShore Simulation Coordinator (left) and Jon Hillenbrand, NorthShore’s Photographer and Media Production Team Lead (right), participate in a “CPR-off”, a contest to see who can be more accurate with their chest compressions measured on a tablet that’s connected to the CPR dummies wirelessly.
Dr. Bridget Wild sets up a music station/playlist that plays music at 100-120 beats per minute! Which, helps keep the rhythm when doing chest compressions.
