Battlefield Medics: Doing a Better Job Today Thanks to Makeup Artist Suzanne Patterson

Today on the BlogTalkRadio show that I co-host with Nancy Brown, Hollywood makeup artist Suzanne Patterson talked about how she "fell" into battlefield wound simulation. Starting from a cold call, she now has the company Military Moulage: Combat Injury Simulation.
The most critical minutes in a wounded soldier's care in combat is the first 10, and quick reaction time can make all the difference between life and death. The vital connection between the laboratory injury simulation experience and a real life combat injury encounter has proven to be a pivotal element in keeping our warfighters alive on the battlefield.

Military Moulage Combat Injury Simulation™ provides high value moulage training workshops for military and civilian casualty simulation personnel. By utilizing exclusive Hollywood special makeup effects with state of the art materials and methods, the student acquires an impressive hands-on knowledge base in techniques and resources to produce real-to-the-eye injury replicas.
Suzanne spoke about the very high percentage of medics who freeze on their first time out on a battlefield and how training with simulated battlefield wounds can help this situation.

Listen to the 30-minute show now to learn more about this amazing strategy for medic battlefield preparedness.
