Florida hospital gets first "simulator baby"

Filed under: Health & Safety: Babies

babySIM

Shands Jacksonville hospital in Florida is the first hospital in the world to use an interactive infant simulator, called BabySIM. The mannequin will be used to train emergency room doctors, paramedics, and medical students how to care for their tiniest patients. BabySIM recognizes and responds to medical treatment and drugs, while simulating human-like sounds and motions. BabySIM can be either a boy or a girl and also cries and urinates. Doctors hope that using the simulator will help perfect the procedures they use. Sixteen more of these BabySIMs will be used in hospitals around the world shortly.
