NAPLES-Fla.- It looks exactly like a real hospital room, but take the patient in the beds are mannequins. Teachers control devices to simulate real life medical scenarios. They can talk, bleed, cough, have seizures and even give birth!
Video from all the rooms are streamed into computer docks so teachers can give their feedback.
This state of the art facility is one of only four in the world. What the students learn here will help the manufacturer, Laerdal, improve it's technology and software.
