Stanley Guest Stars on Grey's Anatomy
We recently saw an episode of Grey's Anatomy that featured the simulator Stanley, so we decided to research him a bit. Last year, the dean of Des Moines University's College of Osteopathic Medicine, Kendall Reed, created an entire $1.5 million sim laboratory with 6 of the mannequins, 2 adults, 2 kids, and a birthing center with mom and newborn. Each one breathes, blinks his/her eyes, has a heartbeat and a pulse, and can go into several clinical scenarios. Unfortunately, while the one on teevy seems almost human, the bots only speak through a faculty member using a mic in an adjoining room.
