Bismarck – Nursing students at the N-D-S-U School of Health got some hands on training today on saving a life.
The students took part in how to work together as a team when a patient undergoes cardiac arrest.
The students worked on “Joe Johnson”, a high-tech simulation mannequin that responds like a real body would in that situation.
Students we talked to, say it takes a total team effort to save someone’s life.
“That’s why the hospital has so many people so you can give a role, per person, like someone is giving meds, someone is writing the information on how many milligrams or what time they gave it at, somebody is performing C-P-R, and changing off” said Nursing Student Christina Korzhuk.
The students will also undergo real-life training in other areas, such as congestive heart failure and labor delivery.
Today’s training is part of “Healthcare Simulation Week” taking place around the globe.
