Recently Christine Barton, WISER's Coordinator of Simulation Services, participated in the Summer Surgical Seminar sponsored by the UPMC Shadyside School of Nursing. This event provided demonstrations and activities for high school students from the surrounding area. Day two of the seminar was spent at WISER, which allowed the students to get hands on experience with the health care tasks. Activities included intubation of a simulated infant, placing central venous lines, fiberoptic intubation and dealing with a cardiac arrest. The students had a great time, and felt that the hands on portion of the seminar was a significant benefit. WISER is grateful for the opportunity to introduce another generation to the important health care field.
