The company Markus Vetter specializes in producing replica medicines to enhance education and training programs for paramedics and rescue workers.13 Nov 2019 Trendspots Editorial Office
In critical situations such as rescue missions, making every move with confidence is vital. There is simply no time for long-winded, nervous hesitation. Learning the necessary routine early on during training is therefore crucial to "functioning" instinctively in an emergency. In some spheres, however, it's impossible to lay your hands on suitable training equipment for teaching the desired skills. The company Markus Vetter, which originally specialized in education and training and repeatedly found itself in the very same predicament, finally decided enough was enough and turned its attention to manufacturing replica medicines for training programs and simulations.
Nowadays, the business offers a broad range of training materials, including vials in thirteen different sizes/designs and fifteen different kinds of single-use glass ampules. On top of that, there are 2.5-milliliter plastic vials for imitating nebulizer treatments, infusions, inhalers, sprays, blood products, and labels that adhere to the standard set by the German Interdisciplinary Association for Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine (DIVI). The company uses water - either clear or dyed white using titanium dioxide to resemble propofol - for liquids, and glucose for dry substances. None of the ingredients used are therefore subject to the German Medicinal Products Act or the practical issues this raises.
