The Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) recently undertook military health care drills using a combat wound mannequin, which transmitted real-time data onto a tablet.
The drills took place at the PLA Western Theatre Command.
The PLA’s combat wound mannequin is able to simulate combat wounds such as fainting and wound-produced bleeding, as well as physiological reactions including pupil reflex, pulse, heart sound, breathing sound, and calls for help. It features an intelligent control system and bleeding system and the actions taken by the medical personnel are recorded and transmitted back to a tablet
Other mannequins being used to enhance Tactical Combat Casualty Care training within the PLA’s Western Theatre Command, include advanced combat wound mannequins, interactive CPR mannequins, and interactive tracheal intubation mannequins.
