THE ORIGINAL MIRA COURSE, DESIGNED & DELIVERED BY EXMED SINCE 2004!

"Outstanding instructors grounded in the real world"

MIRA Student

The Medicine in Remote Areas Course (TM) has been developed to provide students who already have experience in Pre-Hospital Care with the added skills and knowledge to be able to deal with casualties in a remote environment. The course focuses on stabilisation of the injured through to the knowledge and skills required for prolonged field care.

The MIRA course is certified by the Faculty of Pre-Hospital Care, Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh, it is designed for medics working in the oil/gas industry, the media industry, expedition and exploration personnel, medical support for disaster relief and humanitarian organisations, mountain rescue, and search and rescue personnel.

At Exmed we aim to provide the essential underpinning knowledge and skills with an emphasis of understanding the "why" as well as the "how". Therefore, when circumstances occur outside of the norm, MIRA trained personnel can adapt for the benefit of their injured colleagues.

The course structure is primarily based on providing the student with the fundamental skills required to manage a casualty in a remote/challenging environment. During the 5 days the students will learn the following topics:

- Management of injuries from road traffic collisions, ballistics and violent assaults

- Life threatening chest injuries and management including needle decompression
- Circulatory system and Haemorrhage control
- Shock and fluid replacement (I.V & I.O)
- Head injuries

- Environmental illnesses
