Full Body Moulage for Emergency Trauma Simulation

Speaker: Mr Todd Dadaleares
Date: 2​ November 201​7 (Thu)  | Time: 1400 - 1730
LocationAcademia, Level 2, White Space
Workshop Level: Novice to Advanced 

Learn to create intensely realistic moulage for a full body trauma patient. Participants will be provided insight on creating facial swelling, bruising, malformations of bone and bloodied, burned skin. Patients with traumatic amputations and impalement injuries will also be covered in detail. 

Using SimMan3G as our model simulator, moulage skills will be demonstrated live while supported with videos and images of other traumatised high fidelity simulators. Participants will work in teams to moulage sections of a multi-traumatised patient. Silicone wound creation for adhering to mannequin and specialised blood materials will be used. A colour study and match-up will take place to create appropriately “ fresh” haematomas, bleeding and bruising.
Learning Objectives:
  1. Access under the skin of hi fi simulators –to create swelling or believable internal injuries and what to use for materials specific to the case.
  2. Approach moulage like an artist– by matching colour expertly.
  3. C​lean up a very messy, moulaged simulator in time for a quick turnaround-using appropriate, specialised materials​.
