MATT (Multiple Amputation Trauma Trainer)

MATT (Multiple Amputation Trauma Trainer)

Harvey® The Cardiopulmonary Patient Simulator Harvey® The Cardiopulmonary Patient Simulator

The STAR Center welcomes MATT (Multiple Amputation Trauma Trainer) to its already impressive array of simulation manikins. MATT is actually two separate manikins: the AirwayPlus Lifecast Upper Torso Trainer (above, left) and the Packable Hemostatic Wound Trainer (above, right).

The upper torso manikin trains responders to perform life-saving tasks such as maintaining a patient’s airway, needle decompression, chest tube insertion, cricothyroidotomy, and intraosseous infusion.

The lower torso manikin features a full left leg with a bleeding wound at the inguinal crease for hemostatic wound training, venous bleeding at the lower leg, and a traumatic amputation of the right leg requiring a tourniquet. Pressure and flow sensors provide users with immediate feedback regarding the application of sufficient pressure, elapsed time to occlude bleeding, and volume of blood loss.

For more information on trauma training, contact Mike Wystepek at 412.578.5476 or email michael.wystepek@ahn.org.
