Healthcare Training

KBRwyle defines, develops and implements training requirements for a comprehensive health care program for space flight. KBRwyle personnel are responsible for training astronauts, flight surgeons, biomedical engineer flight controllers and other flight control disciplines for operations in health maintenance, environmental health, and countermeasures systems.

KBRwyle employees train crew medical officers for each space flight mission in:

  • Medical diagnostic techniques
  • Therapeutic techniques
  • Patient assessment
  • CPR
  • Medication administration
  • Laceration closure

All training includes hands-on training with flight-like equipment and flight simulation support.

Onboard training has been introduced with the addition of long-duration missions on the International Space Station. Most onboard training is done via computer-based multimedia lessons that cover the Crew Health Care System equipment and associated procedures.
