Its that time of year again, when we are getting ready for Christmas, family and Santa. Sadly not everyone will be looking forward with anticipation, instead simple hoping for food, warmth or a small present. Thankfully there are goups like 'Little Blue Heroes' and 'Barnados' out there. Both help the youngest and most vulnerable in society and this Christmas we ask that you join us in making a donation at https://www.littleblueheroes.org/donate/ or https://www.barnardos.ie/christmas


Trauma training scenario
#1
Hello all,

I am running a trauma scenario for some recruits coming to the end of their probation and I am looking for ways to make it more realistic. ie extra gore and distressed people/actors. Does anyone have any suggestions regarding props or set up that could help.

As always any input is greatly appreciated

Cheers Eight

For blood, corn syrup and red food dye. Mashed banana mixed with red food dye makes a very effective mush for thick blood. For veins and arteries , macaroni cooked again red food dye.
