ST. THOMAS MORE SCHOOL
Sixty-three St. Thomas More School students participated in a hands-on healthcare educational demonstration at Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest June 3.
The students were able to practice hands-on robotics surgery simulation based on an accuracy and dexterity grading system that had them competing for recognition as proficient in the robotics equipment.
They also viewed a demonstration of robotic coronary surgery and were instructed in first aid techniques to stop the bleeding in a severe wound simulation.
The students also were shown slides of victims of lung health disease caused by smoking and vaping, in an effort to discourage use of tobacco and vaping products.
The visit to the hospital was part of the Lehigh Valley Health Network’s fifth annual Explorer’s Day held in conjunction with the LVHN”s Department of Education and Summer Scholars Program.
