Cuyahoga Falls Chamber of Commerce Annual Health Expo
Summa Western Reserve Hospital is set to feature METIman® – an advanced, realistic patient simulator – at its booth during the Cuyahoga Falls Chamber of Commerce 2013 Health EXPO.
“METIman is one of the best, most lifelike training tools available for emergency responders, and we’re excited to showcase this amazing technology at the 2013 Health EXPO” said Dr. Robert Kent, President and CEO of Summa Western Reserve Hospital. “With this animated, realistic ‘patient,’ we’ll be able to provide the community with an accurate demonstration of how the hospital responds to real situations like seizures, cardiac events and more.”
As one of the most true-to-life patient simulators available, METIman offers realistic physiological responses, including lifelike breathing sounds, motion and a pulse, making it the ideal training tool for hospital personnel and police, fire and EMS officials.
Summa Western Reserve Hospital’s booth will offer demonstrations every hour, beginning with seizure at 9 a.m., followed by cardiac events, general emergency and trauma at noon.
Held at the Cuyahoga Falls Natatorium Health & Fitness Center, the 2013 Health EXPO is a free event that promotes the health and well-being of the community by providing health screenings, raffle prizes, family activities and interactive booths from community organizations. The event takes place from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 12.
