Fort Campbell, KY – In the Army, training simulators are used on a regular basis to keep Soldiers ready. In aviation a flight simulator can replicate the most treacherous of flying conditions allowing the crew to gain experience and confidence to respond. An egress trainer prepares Soldiers to safely escape a Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle rollover.
And, at Blanchfield Army Community Hospital, a state-of-the-art obstetrics and pediatrics simulator is preparing Soldiers and their civilian counterparts on the Labor, Delivery and Recovery Unit to save the lives of women and unborn children faced with life- threatening labor and delivery complications.
