Robot Patients

BBC News


The Forth Valley Royal Hospital in Larbert will use a family of seven special mannequins, including Stan, who can respond to anaesthetic gases.

Another robot simulator, Reg, has a heartbeat, can give blood and describe his symptoms.

He will train emergency doctors and nurses. There is also a baby, two children and a pregnant woman robot.

About 1,000 medical and clinical staff will attend training courses at the centre, near Falkirk, every year.
