They were demonstrating the advanced capabilities of the Laerdal SimMan to delegates representing 22 nations form the Pacific Rim. Approximately 100 senior members of the Indian armed forces were involved in the sessions, which generated tremendous interest.
On Thursday Laerdal sponsored an excursion to see the magnificent Taj Mahal. The trip was an amazing view into the Indian culture and people. WISER thanks Laerdal for providing this great opportunity.
