As part of the workshop, I got to experiment and see some of the medical mannequins and tools they use to help train future nurses.
I got the opportunity to run a "code" with a life-sized simulation dummy (we called him Mr. Wham) in Johns Hopkins Medicine Simulation Center. The computer controlled patient was given a heart attack and a team of nurse educators and myself (who played the patient's son)then simulated the process of trying to save the patient--complete with injections and CPR. It was interesting.
The simulation was timed and observers behind a one way piece of glass evaluated our performance.
