Michigan Welcomes High-Fidelity Mannequins
The University of Michigan's nursing school recently announced that they would be using mannequins to teach their students how to respond and treat real-life medical situations.
Now keep in mind that these aren't your normal 'wearing the latest style in sweaters at the mall kind of mannequins'. These are high-fidelity mannequins that can bleed, vomit and even give birth! Yep, that's right, according to the Miami Herald, these mannequins are able to emit fluids and apparently, babies too. The school's new state-of-the-art Clinical Learning Center building features six simulation rooms that house these high-fidelity mannequins. You can see what they look like (just a little creepy) and find out more by clicking here.
