Minnetonka students simulate trauma care at Children’s
Minnetonka High School Vantage students in health care and sports science courses received a level one trauma care simulation experience on Jan. 27, at Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis.
Simulations included situations in a trauma ward, pediatric intensive care, acute care, pain management and comfort care. Vantage students learned and practiced administering medicine, CPR, respiratory care, blood pressure, charting and more.
“Vantage helps apply things the students have learned in the classroom in the real world,” said Vantage Director Dick Hurrelbrink. “You teach it, then you do it.”
The Vantage program at Minnetonka High School is an advanced professional studies program that provides junior and senior students with real-world experiences in professional settings, where they can learn and develop skills for high-demand careers, said Hurrelbrink.
