SAN DIEGO—Emergency physician Christopher Herald, MD, FACEP, stood over the brunette and watched as the pregnant woman’s pupils constricted in the light. He imagined how useful it would be to practice delivering her child.
You see, the woman was a high-end simulator at the ACEP18 Exhibit Hall. Dr. Herald is an emergency physician at Sparrow Carson Hospital in Carson City, Michigan, which recently lost its labor and delivery department.
That means those duties now fall to Dr. Herald and his colleagues. And just knowing that such an advanced simulator is out there means he can seek out an academic center near him that might have one he could train on to be a better physician.
