$2.3 Million Grant Means State-Of-The-Art Health Science Lab For Casper College

Karen Snyder, K2 Radio

A $2.3 million dollar grant from the U.S. Department of Labor to the Casper College School of Health Sciences will bring a state-of-the-art simulation lab to the campus.

Tammy Frankland is health science dean, and she says the new lab facility will have four mock hospital rooms complete with computerized mannequins.

“They can breathe, they can go into cardiac arrest, they can be given over 200 different types of medications and have different reactions. Their pupils dilate. Some of them can even sweat.”

Frankland says working with mannequins means patients are not put at risk, but students get training InĀ  near to real life scenarios making them better practitioners.

Frankland says they expect the labs to be ready for use, at the latest, by spring of 2014.
