Our facilities

Emergency response

We're based on E level of Southampton General Hospital, but we respond to clinical emergency calls across the whole of the Trust and the hospital grounds.

Equipment

Our team is responsible for the Trust's state-of-the-art resuscitation equipment.

We now have defibrillators with a built-in pressure sensor. The defibrillator gives verbal commands to the person carrying out the resuscitation attempt, telling them whether they need to compress deeper, harder, go faster or slower when delivering the chest compressions.

Training equipment

We have access to the latest training mannequins and dummies. Most of our teaching is scenario-based - so students and staff have an opportunity to practise the skills they are learning.

The most advanced mannequins can be shocked (defibrillated) and can have tubes placed into them.
