CONSCIOUS CASUALTY

This dummy was developed with the co-operation of Surf Life Saving Australia as a water rescue dummy for IRB Racing, IRB driver training & Tube Rescue practice. After two years of development, several prototypes and extensive testing they were delighted with the result. During the testing the dummy was also found to be suitable for Jet Ski rescue training and other general rescues scenarios.

For IRB driver training you can now train year round, in the roughest surf, close to the reef and in the coldest weather to practice those fast pick ups as many times as you like. This dummy never complains about the cold water, the aching arms and the sore shoulder or jaw from when the rescuer slightly misjudged the pick up! These manikins will provide a uniformity in the size and weight of casualties being rescued, an important factor in competitions.

The problem for many SLS clubs is to find enough willing volunteers to act as a patient for the IRB rescue teams for practice, especially during the colder months - consequently, skill development suffers. Inflatable Rescue Boat (IRB) competitions/training aims to:

  • Allow crews to demonstrate their techniques and abilities to perform rescues.
  • Bring crews together to discuss and improve IRB techniques and operations.
  • Promote safety awareness techniques for the crew and patients in simulated rescue scenarios.

FEATURES & BENEFITS

  • Shortened to 1.5m to be more manageable for a range of rescuers.
  • Dry weight reduced to 20kg, which  increases to about 40+kg when pulled from the water.
  • Weighting lowered from the torso to the hips to improve stability  in a moving sea.  
  • Boots removed and replaced with durable PVC sleeves on lower leg to reduce drag during extraction.
  • Arms are built aloft to simulate a volunteer 'patient' - no dislocated shoulders or wrists!
  • A polypropylene loop to the back allows the manikin to be lowered into position or hung up to dry.
  • Bright orange overalls and SOLAS reflective tape on the head make the manikins very conspicuous in open water.
  • Polyethylene strips running from the shoulders to the knees allow flexibility in and out of the water but prevent the manikin from being too 'floppy'.
  • Protective overalls are user replaceable and greatly extend the life of the manikin
The dummy weighs 20kgs when dry.  After a few minutes in the water the dummy takes on the water and assumes an upright posture with arms aloft.

For IRB Racing, the dummy attaches to the 'can' using a webbing leash with a velcro connection.  The leash attaches around the neck of the dummy.  As you grab the dummy with your arm through the dummies arms the velcro releases and you drag it into the IRB. 

The weight you are hauling is the dry weight of the dummy plus the water that has soaked into the dummy, ~ 40+ kg Once in the IRB, the water runs out of the dummy and quickly returns to about 20kg which makes for reasonably easy weight management.

The orange overall is made of polyurethane coated polyester which is resistant to salt water.  Polypropylene webbing is stitched to the overall in all high stress points. Beneath the overall the carcass is a tough nylon mesh, as used in our standard water rescue dummy which has been used by NATO military rescue dummies for years.

Throughout the history of medicine, clinical learning has been based on imitating the actions of others. Medical students are expected to learn complex medical tasks by watching other clinicians perform that task. This is known as the “see one, do one” approach, or the apprenticeship model. Certainly, the “see one, do one” approach to learning will continue to have its place. In many cases, however, experts within healthcare see simulation as an alternative, or at least a stepping-stone, between classroom learning and clinical practice. This means change.
