A training exercise gives doctors and paramedics a feel for using point-of-care ultrasound in challenging environments

Emergency teams have recently carried out a training exercise at the vast Stuttgart 21 construction project, using the experience to become more familiar with the site and practice with routine equipment in tunnels as far down as 40 metres, preparing them as much as possible for future emergency calls to the area. Stuttgart 21 is a massive building project based around the main railway station that will result in the current terminus becoming a through station, and a new line connecting directly to Ulm. In total, around 60 km of railway tunnels will be built under the city – over 20 km have already been completed – and, according to current estimates, the project is scheduled to finish in 2021.
