Crew 220 EVA Report 27JAN2020

EVA # 8

Author: Johannes Svensoy, MD

Purpose of EVA: Martian Medical training EVA

Start time: 1400

End time: 1600

Narrative: The morning was spent on medical lectures by Dr. Shawna and Dr. Svensoy at the MDRS Hab. The lectures on P-MARCH-P for first assessment of trauma patients and secondary survey that included full check of the patient. We also went through SAMPLE for patient history and METHANE for calling in the incident.

The crew members were well fed and hydrated leaving the airlock eager to test their skills on the simulated patient and on our medical manikin. Realistic training was conducted in near proximity of the MDRS Hab in the sunny and windy Martian terrain. Simulated exercises included broken ankle after fall, consciousness patient with neck injury after fall from a ladder, and crushed lower limbs after rover accident. The Golden Bubble pressurized medevac device invented by one of the crew members was used for transferring the patient to safety. The Golden Bubble pressurized medevac device can be used for suit breach and for doing medical procedures out in the Martian field.

At the end of the EVA crew members Morgan and Johannes went over to the MAU station on an Engineer EVA to secure the site because of heavy winds.

The crew members did well and expressed valuable learning points; they report being more prepared for taking care of patients if accidents would happen.
