Abstract

What are undergraduate nursing students doing assessing patient breathing‚ treating them for shock and administering medication? The behavior is not as risky as it may seem since the patient is the Kennesaw State University Department of Nursing's new meti man.



Kennesaw State's is the only nursing department in the area to have the meti man‚ which was acquired through a partnership with WellStar Health System. The Meti Human Patient Simulator is a computer driven‚ life−sized mannequin that breathes‚ has pulses and accurately mirrors human responses to medical intervention.



Associate Dean of the School of Health and Human Services Vanice Roberts said‚ "The meti man is an incredible teaching and testing tool that allows students to assess and respond to simulated medical conditions."



The Department of Nursing will host the ribbon cutting and a demonstration of the new Meti Human Patient Simulator Monday‚ April 29‚ 3 p.m. in the lab of the Nursing Building.
