Hi-tech dummies
December 6th, 2006

The BBC reports “new hi-tech dummies that bleed, speak and die, if given the wrong treatment, are being used by medical students. The £135,000 mannequins are part of a new £4.5m training facility being opened at the University of Portsmouth. Professor Lesley Reynolds said: “They breathe oxygen, drool, secrete fluids, blink, bleed and even react to drugs injected into their bodies.” The centre will be used by students of medicine, social work and dentistry as well as police and firefighters. Professor Reynolds, director of the centre, said the mannequins were treated as real patients by staff and students. They have names, biographies and complete medical histories”.
