Army holds medical training in Rochester


ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC)- Friday in Rochester the U.S. Army held a training exercise to help prepare Army nurses for combat.

The training uses a specialized mannequin which helps to give a more realistic trauma experience.

The army conducts these training exercises to emphasize the team element of a trauma situation.Each member knows his or her specific role, and what each the doctor, nurse or medic is in charge of.

According to Captain Rodney Noe this helps the team know exactly what to do when they are deployed and face a crisis situation or setting....which can mean life or death for the injured.

Captain Noe says this training is important to each team, so they can work together without missing something - which he says is essential to the teams' effectiveness.
