First Ever Week-Long, Free Science and Medicine Summer Camp For East Harlem Middle School Students
Forty-eight tweens will practice intubation on a full-scale patient mannequin with a collapsed airway as they rotate through The Mount Sinai Medical Center Department of Anesthesiology’s Human Simulator Lab on Tuesday, August 25, from 10:00 a.m. to noon. The life-saving training is part of Mount Sinai Medical Center and InnoWorks free, week-long summer camp for East Harlem middle-school students to interest them in the real-world application of science and medicine.
Tuesday’s curriculum focuses on the respiratory system including a discussion on respiratory disease in East Harlem, a community with the highest asthma rate in New York City.
The Human Simulator Lab mannequins are equipped with palpable pulses, breath, and heart sounds that physiologically respond to intravenous and inhaled drugs through the interaction of sophisticated cardiovascular and pulmonary computer driven models.
