The essence of the Olympiad is the sequential passage of several simulated scenarios reflecting clinical situations in hospitals and beyond. Each scenario is created specifically for “Exercises” in accordance with current clinical recommendations. The simulation uses mannequins, patient actors, realistic makeup and special effects, real medical and rescue equipment.
