ERLANGER, Tenn. — "I can't breathe!"
Erlanger nurses scramble to perform CPR and defibrillation on Mr. Bill, the medical mannequin. As the nurses open his throat and insert a breathing tube, the mannequin keeps meticulous track of their every treatment. Simulation director Rodney Westmoreland consults Mr. Bill's readings and corrects a nurse on her too-shallow chest compressions.
