Video: 5 Moulage Tips and a Great Vomit Recipe

Do you use moulage for mass casualty incident drills and patient assessment scenarios? This video from RescueDigest has 5 great moulage tips. The how-to instruction is specific and the examples are realistic.

The best “fake” vomit recipe I learned was from a Canadian Wilderness Medical Associates instructor. The recipe:
– canned green beans including the liquid
– high pulp orange juice
– fine grated parmesean cheese
Mix and mash ingredients to desired proportions. Chew a bit before spewing just as your rescuers arrive. The visual and olfactory combination is great.
