UCSD facility built to make better doctors
The San Diego Union-Tribune
A nurse quickly moved to the man's side, coaching him to take deep breaths while another nurse increased the flow to his oxygen mask. Two doctors waited to administer a critical dose of nitroglycerin, which would help restore blood flow to the heart. Watching the scene unfold via video feed from a nearby conference room, Dr. Peggy Wallace couldn't contain her excitement. "Look at that. That's a team," she said, grinning like a proud parent.

Smart dummies aid medical training
Cayman Free Press Ltd.
The child on the gurney inside a brightly lit room in Cayman Islands Hospital emits ragged cries, his chest rising and falling quickly, as a monitor at his feet tracks his heartbeat and blood pressure and beeps ominously. But this is no ordinary sick child. For one thing, he's plastic. The little boy is a mannequin, one of several brought by a team of pediatric care experts from across the U.S. who were recently in Grand Cayman training and teaching local medical staff on the latest techniques, equipment and medications used in emergency child health.
