USF Athletic trainers & physicians work on the iStan simulator
Just like a winning football team practices until it gets it right, the medical professionals who treat athletes have to do the same thing. USF has a high-tech tool that helps in their medical training efforts—iStan, a life-like simulator that mimics anything from heat exhaustion to cardiac arrest. University Beat on WUSF TV takes you to a recent practice session where trainers, physicians and first responders had to work together quickly to save iStan’s life.
