SimMan Medical Teaching Aid
George Mason University's College of Nursing and Health Science has been using these computer-controlled anatomical models to teach students how to handle high-pressure medical emergencies. SimMan can have a hypertensive crisis, hyperventilate, and make heart, lung, and bowel sounds. SimMen can be programmed to complain about vague symptoms and rudely ask,
"do you really know what you're doing?" I hope there are SimWomen too.
