ADLS® is an advanced practicum course for those who have successfully completed
the BDLS® course. It is an intensive,
two-day course that allows students to demonstrate competencies in casualty decontamination,
specified essential skills, and mass casualty incident information systems/technology
applications. Using simulated, all-hazards scenarios and mass causality incidents,
ADLS® makes use of four interactive sessions in which participants treat simulated
patients in various disaster drills and situations. Training is focused on the development
of hands-on skills to allow participants to apply the knowledge learned in BDLS®.
ADLS®’s interactive scenarios and drills utilize high-fidelity mannequins and volunteer
patients to simulate a realistic experience in treating pathologic patient conditions
not routinely encountered by the responders and health care providers. Hands-on exercises
teach practical skills, such as decontamination and use of protective equipment,
and provide instruction in topics that traditionally are not addressed in health
care education curricula.
Day 2 of ADLS® is the “hands on” day of training. Four
skills stations reinforce the previous day’s learning. These skills stations are
™ - This challenging station allows the students to practice
the concepts of the disaster paradigm with an emphasis on patient triage. Simulated
disaster victims must be triaged and treated correctly while attempting to manage
a chaotic scene and request appropriate resources.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and Decontamination
- This station teaches important
concepts about the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) and decontamination
techniques. Students are given the opportunity to wear PPE and participate in a simulated
decontamination while attempting to render medical care.
- This station teaches vital skills necessary for
medical disaster management. Students are taught about the Strategic National Stockpile
and proper Mark-I kit use. Students are also allowed to practice Smallpox immunization.
Human Patient Simulator
- Recognition of victims of a chemical and biological disaster
is paramount. This station is designed to reinforce the detection and proper treatment
of conditions that may occur during disasters that we do not normally treat. Treatment
of chemical, biological, and traumatic patients is covered. The use of high fidelity
human patient simulators allows the student to see, hear, and feel information that
would normally be provided by an instructor, creating a more realistic experience
than standard mannequins can provide.
