Former student and staff member Joe Benson recently visited Liverpool Life Sciences Simulation Suite. Joe utilized SIM man to simulate an asthma attack scenario, teaching students how to assess, diagnose, and treat it using oxygen and therapeutic agents. Additionally, sixth form students from the Medicine, Veterinary, and Dentistry group learned how to use a laryngoscope for intubation if the patient didn't respond initially. The realistic SIMMAN scenarios enables our students to handle the situation professionally and respectfully. Joe is a popular and engaging visitor, and we eagerly anticipate his return in a few weeks for the next stage of the patient's treatment. Meanwhile, students will participate in lessons aimed at enhancing their understanding of breathing and airway management...#LiverpoolLifeSciences #Liverpool #Simman #asthma #medicine #vet #dentist #lifesciences #utc #students #education

🌟 Heidi and Evie Save The Day 🌟 On Monday, two of our Health and Social Care 6th Form students bravely assisted a medical emergency in a café. A 79-year-old lady fell ill and fainted, followed by a seizure. Heidi and Evie quickly placed the lady in the recovery position and stayed with her until the ambulance arrived. The lady is now recovering and expressed her gratitude for their medical support. This incident showcases the exceptional abilities and practical application of our students' Health and Social Care knowledge beyond the school setting. We are so proud of them both! Well done to Heidi and Evie! 😍..#heroes #students #savetheday #healthandsocialcare #health #education #Lifesciences #LiverpoolLifesciences #Liverpool #Merseyside #proud
