An important event have taken place at Zaporizhzhia State Medical University. It was useful not only for the higher education institution, but also for the entire medical community of the region. Medical workers of mobile vaccination teams have trained here. Their mission is to vaccinate the population of the region from COVID-19. This urgent measure was taken in compliance with the orders of the Ministry of Health care of Ukraine "On approval of the Roadmap for the introduction of vaccine against acute respiratory disease COVID-19 caused by coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, and mass vaccination in response to the COVID-19 pandemic in Ukraine in 2020-2022 years "and" On the procedure for preventive vaccinations in Ukraine and quality control and circulation of medical immunobiological drugs.

The Department of Health care of the Zaporizhzhia Regional State Administration takes care of ensuring the proper training of doctors of mobile teams. That is why ZSMU was requested about such kind of training. After all, there is no such training center as the University Interdepartmental in our region.
Four mobile teams attended the training. Every team included more than 20 specialists. Among them were family doctors, nurses, paramedics and four regional trainers. First of all, the participants listened to a lecture about the peculiarities of vaccination and its possible complications. Then they started a master class on providing basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation using a defibrillator. Such training was organized and conducted by the head of the Interdepartmental Training Center, Assistant of the Department of Internal Medicine1 and Stimulation Medicine Kateryna Romanova, Candidate of Medical Sciences, Associate Professor of Disaster Medicine and Military Medicine Oleg Levkin, Assistant of the Department of Anesthesiology and Intensive Care Irina Skoba.
Our goal was to show medical workers a practical algorithm of actions for providing assistance in critical conditions, such as clinical death, anaphylactic and other life-threatening, - said Oleg Levkin. – Participants worked with mannequins, simulators, additional equipment - defibrillators, Ambu bag, etc. All participants of the training formed and consolidated their practical skills. I am satisfied with the activity of the medics of the mobile teams, I saw their desire to gain knowledge, I believe that they have received that. "
The regional trainer and immunologist Ida Rumyantseva thanked to organizers for the training. She noted that the practical component is extremely valuable for the important mission of mobile teams because they have to implement the state program of mass vaccination of the population to protect it from COVID-19. They received a theoretical component, and a well-equipped center, using the necessary equipment made the training especially useful for all its participants. Everyone had the opportunity to work out resuscitation measures on their own, to get answers to questions. Teamwork skills have been demonstrated very effectively.
