Besides so-called technical skills, such as defibrillation, chest compressions and ventilation, a new group of skills that affect the effectiveness of the medical team emerges; like communication, leadership, decision making and task management. Real-time cardiac arrest simulations are dedicated to help you improve your team-work skills and become an even better member of an Emergency response team!

Rapid trauma survey
When treating a polytraumatized patient, it is vital to recognize all injuries and miss none, while also wasting as little precious minutes as possible. After this workshop, you will be much more confident performing an examination. You will be training hard with ITLS-awarded Emergency Medical Personnel!
MASSIVE BLEEDING CONTROL
“Just put on a tourniquet!” Sounds so simple, right? In this workshop, the instructors will make you practice, practice, practice, and show you how to work with highly specialised bleeding control equipment or with whatever you have on hand.
TECHNICAL and fire rescue
No matter how surgically skilled, the physician can’t cut open a car or carry the patient out from a fire. Firefighters can. In this workshop, professional firefighters of Ljubljana Fire Brigade will take you through their procedures that enable medical staff to access the injured.
Wouldn't you expect something mountain-ish in Slovenia? As people get injured in places difficult to reach, specialised services make it possible for medical personnel to take care of the injured. Our excellent mountain rescue service will take over this workshop so don’t worry, everybody should return safely on firm ground.
EXTREMITIES TRAUMA - DO’S AND DON’Ts
Every day, the Emergency Medicine Department is flooded with an endless queue of limbs that are broken, sprained, dislocated, bleeding (or all of the above). What to do before “RICE”? How to assess the damage to nerves and blood vessels? Can I pop this joint back in? How? … Should I?
THORAX AND ABDOMEN TRAUMA MANAGEMENT
Thorax and abdomen trauma management in the field might often be frustrating compared to extremities trauma management, as there is not much to be done in the field with minimal equipment - but there is, on the other hand, a lot to be done in OR. This workshop will guide you through what can be done in the field and what happens later in the OR.
Dealing with a polytraumatized patient requires an extremely well-coordinated team that is able to identify and prioritize all the key issues, treat them and stabilize the patient. Learn about the protocols in place and how a trauma-code is run in real life from one of our most experienced trauma surgeons.
With advancements in technology, ultrasound is becoming a standard piece in the toolkit of an emergency medicine doctor. In this hands-on workshop, you will learn to perform focused ultrasound examination that provides vital information about a patient's condition.
HOW TO: X-Ray, CT and Emergency medicine radiology
Is there a fracture? Is there fluid in the chest cavity? Air in the abdomen? Do I see signs of pulmonary embolism? Diagnostic imaging is crucial in managing patients that walk or roll through the doors of the Emergency Medicine Department. You will learn how to examine X-rays and CT scans with such a system as to never miss anything again.
“Give me one 5-0 suture, please!”, “Let’s do a simple interrupted suture …” Do you know what that means and do you know how to do it? In this workshop, you will learn everything, from choosing the correct tools to making the final knot.
AMBULANCE INSIDE OUT
Lights, sirens, action! Have you seen the inside of an ambulance before? We will let you open all the boxes and drawers, make you take the stretcher out and let you figure it out how to put it back in again, and, of course, you will be able to turn on the lights and sirens.
