From the Ted Talk by Peter Weinstock: Lifelike simulations that make real-life surgery safer

Unscramble the Blue Letters

What if I told you there was a new technology that, when placed in the hands of doctors and nurses, improved octmuoes for children and adults, patients of all ages; reduced pain and suffering, reduced time in the operating rooms, reduced anesthetic times, had the uiamttle dose-response curve that the more you did it, the better it benefitted pitanets? Here's a kicker: it has no side effects, and it's available no matter where care is delivered. I can tell you as an ICU doctor at Boston Children's hotpisal, this would be a game changer for me. That technology is lifelike rehearsal. This lifelike rehearsal is being dreeeivld through medical simulation.

Original Text

What if I told you there was a new technology that, when placed in the hands of doctors and nurses, improved outcomes for children and adults, patients of all ages; reduced pain and suffering, reduced time in the operating rooms, reduced anesthetic times, had the ultimate dose-response curve that the more you did it, the better it benefitted patients? Here's a kicker: it has no side effects, and it's available no matter where care is delivered. I can tell you as an ICU doctor at Boston Children's Hospital, this would be a game changer for me. That technology is lifelike rehearsal. This lifelike rehearsal is being delivered through medical simulation.
