Professors in the School of Nursing utilize campus experts to improve programming for students. Biomedical engineering professor Larry Fennigkoh ’74, ’86, Ph.D., recently worked with nursing faculty to modify the simulation manikins used in the cardiac lab. The patient is given a diuretic and, when the patient is in heart failure, water flows through the manikin and simulates urination thanks to Dr. Fennigkoh’s improvements. This makes the student’s experience in the lab more realistic. In addition, the School of Nursing’s student worker Peter Johnson engineered a piece of equipment to improve efficiency in the labs. The biomedical engineering senior created a device to fill medications and IV bags with less mess.
