Sims promise 'revolution' in medical training
From May 30:
Future medical training needs for military and civilian doctors are similar; the list includes virtual patients and cadavers, haptic technology, advanced simulators for high-fidelity operations and patient-specific sims. This was the view presented by retired Col. Richard Satava, senior science advisor for the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command, during a panel about the dual use of technology in military and civilian arenas at the ITEC 2013 simulation and training conference here. Technologies for medical simulation are useful in both fields and could be programmed to teach doctors to treat the victim of a car crash or someone injured in combat.
