Just in case you’ve been wondering where I’ve been and what I’ve been doing this past week …
I was at the Penn Conference attending lectures on cardiology, ophthalmology, pain management, and emergency medicine. The best part was Robo Jerry! I had a lab this afternoon where I got to practice my life saving CPR skills on a robot named Robo Jerry. I participated in two cardiac arrest scenarios: the first “dog” was an older German Shepherd Dog that collapsed from heart disease and the second “dog” was a one year old Pitbull that was hit by a car. I was able to perform CPR, inject life saving drugs, charge up the defibrillator paddles, and yell “clear.” And all on a life-like mannequin that has a heart beat, breathes, and has a pulse. Very cool!
You’ll be happy to know that both of my “dogs” were resuscitated successfully
peace, love, and plenty of tail wags ~
